L.S. Dunes is a ‘Supergroup’ — a more recently christened band made up of highly talented members from other groups. Some succeed so exceedingly well as to eclipse their original groups so mightily we forget they were forged from circumstance, rather than formed by happenstance. The most revered of these being worthy of GOAT Supergroup status (Greatest Of All Time).
Neither wait for your arrival,
Chastise in the weight of your approval.”
What ostensibly began with Cream in the 60s has now exploded with some of the most famous GOATs being Led Zeppelin, CSNY, The Eagles, This Mortal Coil, Mad Season, Foo Fighters, A Perfect Circle, Them Crooked Vultures, and Atoms For Peace, to namedrop a few. [wikipedia.org]
“Tongue-tied never rest,
Buried in your favorite dress.”
L.S. Dunes are comprised of Anthony Green (Saosin, Circa Survive), Frank Iero (My Chemical Romance), Travis Stever (Coheed and Cambria), Tim Payne (Thursday), and Tucker Rule (Thursday). Word of the post-hardcore, emo supergroup first emerged when they appeared on the poster for Riot Fest in May 2022. “We wanted to do something where you can hear all our bands in it and yet, not have it sound like any one in particular,” said Rule adding, “Our roots are punk rock and hardcore, and the vibe is hope for all the lost souls.“
This is like one of those dreams where random people from different points in your life are all in the same place. Except this one involves awesome musicians from awesome bands making awesome new music.~danutd94 in YouTube comments section
Song ‘Permanent Rebellion’ quickly builds to an insane fusion of whipsawed talents working so ferociously-entwined so as to near-defy comprehension. Brief dips in intensity serve only to further embellish the already augmented ferocity felt within and without. The vocals, an atonal acrimonious scream to an unjust relationship of dubious value stretched thin, taut, still remaining dangerously elastic.
“I don’t want to be alone like this,
Why don’t you make it what you want it to be?
I don’t want to be the victim here,
Another victim here.”
