PRESS RELEASE - September 2022 - EPK Dropbox
LIPSTEREO is set to release its debut EP, 'MODERN MYTHOLOGY’ internationally on Friday 11th November 2022 on the newly established independent record label, Pop Preservation Society. The EP has been named "Record Of The Week" by Rolling Stone for week commencing 7th November.
It's been nearly thirty years since rock'n'roll disappeared from the mainstream music industry roster. A young, four-piece indie rock band from Melbourne, Australia, LIPSTEREO, is bringing it back. Formed in 2019 this group of music tragics bonded together over a mutual obsession with The Strokes, Weezer, and Arctic Monkeys' back catalogues. By channeling time spent watching worn-out Ramones and Blondie VHS tapes as children, LIPSTEREO creates performances reminiscent of late nights at CBGB.
2022 has seen the band sell out every headline performance. Their high-energy live shows fuse loud guitars with a post-punk songwriting sensibility to create music worthy of Phil Spector's Spotify playlist in a parallel universe.
Sam Stranges - vocals and rhythm guitar
Andrew Stainsby - lead guitar
Tage Hosking-Gregory - bass guitar
Jesse Porter - drums
The band was fortunate enough to secure the services of legendary Australian record producer, Mark Opitz AM (AC/DC, INXS, Cold Chisel), to work on their four-track debut EP titled, 'Modern Mythology.’ It was recorded at Thirty Mill Studios (Melbourne) and engineered by Colin Wynne (INXS, Jeff Lang, The Casanovas).
Their first radio song 'STOP', captures the garage rock essence of the band. It was the fourth most streamed song in Australia last week, with the music video played four weeks in a row on Australia's iconic National ABC TV music show, ‘Rage.’
The second EP track released to radio was ‘LITTLE SPACESHIPS’; a melodic antidote to their debut single channeling The Beatles, Nirvana and Ramones and even using bells and mellotron. 'FEEDBACK' and 'TAKE THE BUS' are brooding masterpieces that make up side two of the EP.
LIPSTEREO recently performed three songs live at a worldwide streamed concert called “Let Me Help - Children Of The World.” It was telecast live from New York City on behalf of children’s charities across the world. The band appeared alongside classic artists including Suzi Quatro, Ten Years After, Tony Orlando, Paul Anka and John Lodge (Moody Blues).
