'As I Fell' is the follow-up to 'Severed', one of the most critically acclaimed debuts of 2017, and builds on Curse Of Lono's deeply cinematic blend of harmony-laden Americana and driving, gothic alt-rock. It's a sound that owes as much to old faithfuls like The Doors and The Velvet Underground as it does to more contemporary artists such as The War On Drugs and Wilco. Although some of the songs on As I Fell revisit familiar themes like murderous jealousy and the death of loved ones, much of the album covers new ground. Produced by Oli Bayston (Boxed In) at Rancho V, a remote desert studio in Joshua Tree, and Flesh & Bone Studios in Hackney. A special 2LP release on 180g, 45RPM vinyl in a gatefold sleeve. Formed in London in 2015, Curse Of Lono is Felix Bechtolsheimer (vocals and guitar), Joe Hazell (lead guitar and vocals), Dani Ruiz Hernandez (keys and vocals), Charis Anderson (bass and vocals) and Neil Findlay (drums). 'If dangerous living bothers you, look away now - but for everyone else, Curse Of Lono are a new beacon of darkness' - Mojo; 'Exile On Main Street meets William Faulkner' - Classic Rock; 'Mean, moody and magnificent' - Country Music Magazine.
