Respected hard rock band LO-PAN will release its new LP, Subtle, on May 17 via Aqualamb Records. The Ohio group, known for its dichotomic sound which merges sturm und drang heaviness with relentlessly catchy, AOR laden melody, recorded the new album at both NYC's Reservoir and The Union studios with Grammy Award winning producer James Brown (FOO FIGHTERS, GHOST, NIN). LO-PAN's fourth record, Subtle was mastered by famed engineer Ted Jensen (ALICE IN CHAINS, GUNS 'N' ROSES, MASTODON) and is the follow-up to the unit's 2017 release, In Tensions, a record hailed as "rock more akin for a day at the beach than a nightmarish, post-apocalyptic dungeon lair" (Last Rites).

In advance of the new record's release, LO-PAN has debuted the song "Ascension Day", which you can strema below.

It’s hardly a secret that some of the most potent hard rock ever rocked comes from the American midwest; places like Detroit and Cleveland, after all, have proven to serve as perfect inspiration for first-rate heavy music. Formed in 2005 and forged from the fire of more than 1,000 white hot live performances alongside peers such as HIGH ON FIRE, TORCHE, KENMODE and more, LO-PAN's "secret" is its unfuckwithable ability to create immersive rock music born of dynamic dazzle, progressive pummel and emotional energy. Silky, yet punishing.

With their fourth full-length, bassist Skot Thompson, drummer Jesse Bartz, guitarist Chris Thompson and singer Jeff Martin have pushed LO-PAN's already high ceiling straight through its proverbial roof. Subtle opening track "10 Days" begins with the unmistakable static of a guitar being plugged in; an entryway to a beautifully gnarly riff that heralds an album built on heavy walls of sound and feeling, underpinned by the familiar collision of Bartz’s heavy hitting and Thompson’s sleek basslines, all in service to Martin’s transcendent vocal performances.

Track listing:

  • "Ten Days"
  • "Savage Heart"
  • "Ascension Day"
  • "Sage"
  • "Everything Burns"
  • "Old News"
  • "Bring Me A War"
  • "A Thousand Miles"
  • "Khan"
  • "Butcher's Bill"
  • "The Law & The Swarm"
The album will be released on LP with a sleeve designed by Eric Palmerlee, and as always for Aqualamb releases, as a 100 page art book/digital download package.

This month, LO-PAN will perform live as one of the featured acts at the 2019 Stoned and Dusted Festival, set for May 25-26 in the Southern California Mojave Desert. At the special gathering, LO-PAN will share the stage with Black Mountain, Brant Bjork, King Buffalo, Yawning Man, Melvins and more.

In additional news, LO-PAN has announced a summer North American tour with CORROSION OF CONFORMITY and CROWBAR. Set to launch on July 26 in Poughkeepsie, NY, the month long tour will criss-cross the country, running through August 25 in Providence, RI.
