“Lord Friday the 13th is a dollar store trash-glam-punk band based in Austin, TX. fronted by siblings Felix (vocals) and Sloane (guitar) Lenz, their sound has been described as the Velvet Underground meets the New York Dolls, with hints of early Iggy and the Stooges. Since their formation in early 2019 they've quickly garnered the attention and support of many respected people in the industry. After playing their first full band show at Whelan's in Dublin during the summer of 2019 they hit the ground running upon returning to austin, playing several times a month at some of the most loved venues in town and have been featured artists at sxsw every year since their formation. The band was able to explore and refine their stage presence through playing so frequently and were joined by a rotating cast of some of Austin's best drummers and bassists. With Felix and Sloane both having backgrounds in visual mediums, they pull from a large pool of inspirations, not only musical. THEY recorded their debut album in late february of 2020 at Bed Rock studios in Cavan, ireland. The band decided to break what was initially going to be an album up into various ep's, starting with "irrational anthem" which released in mid September. They've since travelled to support low on their album release shows at square lake music festival in Minnesota, as well as being featured at treefort music festival 2021 in boise, idaho. While honoring the origins of punk and the energy it birthed with it, Lord Friday continues the legacy of change and pushing boundaries on societal norms that true punk is known for. Challenging gender roles and conformity, Lord Friday is here to empower and inspire a new kind of punk for a new world. Welcome to Lord Friday Land.”
Pronounced Jah-see, Gyasi seems in many ways to come from another planet, and being raised in the woods of a West Virginia holler might as well be another planet in this day and age. His parents bought him a guitar at a local flea market when he was six years old and he still hasn’t gotten rid of the fleas, or the guitar. He approaches his music as an all-encompassing art piece, using fashion, storytelling, and his guitar to create a world for his music. His debut full length vinyl is out now on Alive Records. Inspired by a wide range of art and culture both past and present, his work is fueled by an undeniable passion to create music that brings rock n roll into the 21st century. Gyasi is a modern rock star like no other.
