Lost Leaders, guitarist/vocalist Peter Cole and bassist/vocalist Byron Isaacs have just put the finishing touches on their third LP, Promises, Promises (March 1).
After two years of touring with the Lumineers, Isaacs, who previously was Levon Helm's bassist, joined Cole at Sun Mountain Studio in upstate New York, a studio which sits atop of a mountain in the Catskills with a view of the expansive Ashokan reservoir. The album was produced by David Baron whose credits include Vance Joy, Jade Bird, Meghan Trainor and Peter Murphy.
Promises, Promises takes the permanent background noise of anxiety most of us are feeling and sends it through a large collection of vintage synthesizers, guitar pedals and tea-soaked vocal chords. It emerges as a singable, anthem-driven record of nine songs that waste no time getting where they’re going. This is the best record we’ve ever made. We promise.
