New Release ! “Before Night Falls – The Black Box Sessions”

 

Before Night Falls – The Black Box Sessions is the latest release from the LUX the band. It was brought out first on our Bandcamp in December to coincide with the one-year anniversary of GRAVITY with all download proceeds going to World Central Kitchen – an ONG that provides meals to those caught in the crossfire of natural and man-made disasters.

Now widely released to streaming, the 5 tracks of the EP were all recorded live, on tape at our favorite Studio Black Box, France. The recording of each song was also filmed with one video per track – all but one is already out on our YouTube channel.

The track list – all with links to the videos:

Chemical Love
Lullaby
Jailor (video to come soon)
You Said Something (PJ Harvey cover)
Cinnamon Girl (Neil Young)

As a bonus is the video edit of Did You Hear They’re Talking About the End of the World Again.

The EP was recorded on a summer afternoon, before night fell. It showcases the band playing all together as if on stage and sheds some light on the B-side songs as well as offering two covers: PJ Harvey’s beautiful You Said Something – here just as an acoustic duo and Neil Young’s iconic Cinnamon Girl – a song the band often plays in concert – by an artist that was so influential on our music.

New EP – New Video – “CHEMICAL LOVE” Live at Studio Black Box

 

As the lead single for the new EP, Before Night Falls – The Black Box Sessions, what other song could we choose but Chemical Love – a favorite of Sylvain’s.

An ode to classic rock from the 1970’s. As detailed in an article by the editor of SONGAZINE:

Admirer le talent de LUX THE BAND, clip Chemical Love, chanson impeccable, musiciens au top, captation live réussie. Ambiance 70’s dans ce qu’elle a de meilleur ; on est fans !

Each song from the 5 track EP (more on that to come) was recorded live on tape at our beloved Studio Black Box, France.
