Last Gang Records is introducing the world to Bang Lime: the two-man project consisting of guitarist/singer Joshua Winstead and drummer Joules Scott-Key, who both also happen to make up the rhythm section of the 4-piece Metric. The longtime friends, who have collaborated on various projects throughout the years since meeting at the University of North Texas in 1991, will release their debut album as Bang Lime, entitled BEST FRIENDS IN LOVE, on August 14th. In support of the release, Bang Lime will kick off their first tour on August 9th with a show at the Roxy in Los Angeles.
Written over an 18-month period while Metric was on the road, BEST FRIENDS IN LOVE, was recorded this past January in a two-week session at Sharkbite studio in Oakland, California, where the two band members reside. Joshua and Joules produced the record and their friend, Montreal’s Drew Malamud (The Dears, Stars), engineered.
When not in the studio this fall with Metric, Bang Lime looks forward to touring the US and Canada.
