LURCH & CHIEF TOUR
Lurch and Chief will show off their second EP Breathe at Transit Bar on Saturday.
Time out allows band to Breathe
The Melbourne six-piece Lurch &
Chief will hit Transit Bar on
Saturday May 23 as part of a
15-date national tour to celebrate
their second EP Breathe.
Front man Hayden Somerville
said the band stole away a few
weeks to write and recorded the
album together in Halls Gap,
Produced by the legendary
Lindsay Gravina (Roland S
Howard, Magic Dirt, Violent Soho)
the new stuff has been described as
a much darker soundscape than
"I think it sort of reflects how
everyone was feeling at the time,
"For some reason we all decided
we would write the EP in two
weeks. It just put the pressure on
everyone to perform and I think that
anxiety just came out in the
Taking time away nestled in the
picturesque northern Grampians
was a band tradition, but it also gave
the six busy members a chance to
focus on their vision for the music.
"To get everyone on the same
page in Melbourne is pretty bloody
impossible to be honest," he said.
Since Somerville, Alexander
Trevisan and Josh Lane had a band
together prior to Lurch & Chief the
trio wrote a lot of the first album.
However co-vocalist Lilibeth
Hall took the lead musically on
several tracks including the lead
single Fading Out.
"With Fading Out and also
Breathe she really stepped up,"
"As soon as Lili sung something
everyone said yep that s what we
are going to use . Certainly she held
her own. It s just great to see your
best friend do that."
Lurch & Chief formed in 2012 as
a creative outlet for the group of
close mates and Somerville said
knowing one another so well had
kept the band strong.
"As it becomes more real doing
this as a profession, yes sometimes
discussions get heated," he said.
"We are lucky to have known
each other for 10-odd years now
and we all get that the next day it s
nothing personal, we just all really
care about what we re doing."
Lurch & Chief play Transit Bar
from 8pm. Tickets $15.30 at
