L.S. Dunes have dropped their first new music since 2022 album ‘Past Lives’ – the lively garage rock track ‘Benadryl Subreddit’.
The song comes complete with a new music video, shot with Pat and Nick Demarais, who also worked on the Limitless Sky documentary, featuring a slightly sinister ice cream truck.
Check it out below:
On the new song, Frank Iero said “Benadryl’s title comes from a conversation that Mikey Way (My Chemical Romance) and I were having one night on tour about sober guys finding out legal ways of getting high without doing actual drugs and messing with their sobriety. The music for this song came about when I knew we were going into the desert to record with Alex Newport at Rancho De La Luna. I had just received a new guitar in the mail from Ben Wasser at Guitarworks called the ‘Shaft’ and I got to thinking about the desert and what I thought that guitar should sound like in that setting. That riff came out immediately. “Benadryl Subreddit” represents the heat of the day out in the desert, sweating bullets and going fast.”
Travis Stever adds ““In the early stages of the demo it was clear this song needed to be recorded and released sooner than many of the other songs we’ve been working on. It captures an energy for the moment. It’s hard to keep hold of the energy and aim from demo to final recordings. I feel like with Alex Newport we did it!”
And Tucker Rule concludes “Frank sent this infectious riff, and I immediately knew what I was going to play. The chemistry of this band is undeniable, and I love it so much.”
L.S. Dunes are on tour across the US this summer including some shows as part of Sad Summer Festival later this month.
