Bridge Nine’s newest roster addition, Lemuria, are currently in the studio recording their yet-to-be-titled debut for the label! The band is holed up at the Magpie Cage in Baltimore, MD for the next few weeks with producer J Robbins (known for his work with bands like Jawbreaker, Hey Mercedes and the Promise Ring). Lemuria drummer Alex Kerns said, “Right when we started writing this album, we knew we wanted to record with J. His catalog and style best compliments the new songs we’re working on.”
Lemuria’s trademark sound of sweet post punk with pop sensibilities will be prevalent on this new album, as the songs “…don’t stray far from ‘Get Better’ in a way that will alienate people who are into that record. At the same time, I feel our new material is higher energy”, commented Alex. Highly influenced by bands like Archers of Loaf, Pavement and Superchunk, Lemuria’s B9 debut is sure to be their finest effort to date. And while anything following up the record that Punknews called “the best debut full-length of the year [Get Better]” will be a hefty task, Lemuria is ready for the challenge.
