L.S. Dunes have released a beautiful, pared-back version of their recent ‘Old Wounds’ single.
The track forms part of the band’s forthcoming ‘Lost Songs: Lines and Shapes’ release, which is set to arrive November 10.
The project sees the band completely reconfigure their incredible 2022 ‘Past Lives’ debut album, with this latest ‘Old Wounds’ demo providing a little taste of what’s in store.
Have a listen via the unpretentious video below, which sees the band in writing and rehearsing at Rancho De La Luna in Joshua Tree, California, where ‘Old Wounds’ was originally recorded.
Travis Stever, also co-founder of Coheed and Cambria, has said of the track’s new demo version:
“The original guitar part for ‘Old Wounds’ was conceived in the L.S. Dunes text thread. It was an old riff that I had never used.
“I stumbled on it and started working on it again and sent it in the middle of the night. Tim was the only one still awake… Tim had a positive response and showed enthusiasm, so I kept sending the riff ideas to him and he would give his opinion and notes.
“The next morning, I ran to my studio space and recorded the guitar parts. At this point we had numerous instrumental ideas, and it was up to Anthony what songs we would choose for the desert sessions.
“He sent back the most beautiful and haunting vocals and lyrics to the guitar ideas that would become ‘Old Wounds’. It then became clear that that would be one of the songs we needed to record.”
