What started as a casual meeting in the stairway above a beloved diner in Buffalo, NY has turned into countless miles and 15 years of touring, changing the sound of the band Lemuria. The group’s latest record, Recreational Hate, runs in all directions, blending the speed of their past sounds with their current. One thing is certain, the songs have a great vibe and groove. Recorded with four-time Grammy-winning engineer and producer, Chris Shaw, the latest record is a must listen. Check out the video for their single “Kicking In” above.

In 2018, Tancred released Nightstands, recorded by Lewis Pesacov (Best Coast, Generationals). Listen and watch the video for the single “Queen of New York ” above.
