Hard rock band ARTIFAS released their new single “LEAVE ME FOR DEAD” via Imagen Records! The single is from their forthcoming album titled Reflections due out November 19, 2021.
“Leave Me For Dead is a song about abandonment and the struggle to overcome the emotions associated with it. We’ve all had that person in our lives that we trusted, just to find out that they would leave us for dead when things got tough. This song is about just being in disbelief over something like that and the internal battle that follows when you’re left in doubt…” says the band.
NEW VIDEO ALERT! L.A. Guns “Cannonball”
Written and recorded during late 2020 and early 2021, “Checkered Past” sees Tracii Guns, Phil Lewis, and company continuing with the darker lyrical tone of the preceding studio albums, “The Devil You Know” and “The Missing Peace”, while incorporating their classic rock influences into the mix. Heavier songs are mixed with bluesier, boogie inducing tracks and dark, introspective ballads, often harkening back to the first three albums the band made, but also pushing the band forward. When fans absorb the album as a whole, they’ll see that the tracklisting is divided up into ‘sets’ or ‘suites’, where a sonic style is explored across multiple songs before moving on to the next, making for a remarkable listening experience.
