Contest! Win Tickets to The Lazys at The Roxy on November 13, 2014 and a CAT Rugged phone case
Hailing from New South Wales, The Lazys made a splash earlier this year at Canadian Music Week (CMW) in Toronto, performing three sets in only 23 hours. Referred to as “the best new live band” by “Shake It Like You Mean It” co-writer Ian D’Sa of Billy Talent, The Lazys’ CMW performances included a set at the legendary Horse Shoe Tavern alongside fellow Australians You Am I and a packed show at the Bovine Sex Club.
On the heels of their Canadian debut album, Australian rockers, The Lazys, is touring across Canada with One Bad Son. During the tour, The Lazys has performed alongside Big Wreck at The Danforth Music Hall in Toronto and with The Trews at Petit Campus in Montreal.
We chatted with The Lazys to talk about their latest self-titled album and collaborating with superstar hard rock producer / engineer Garth “GGGArth” Richardson.
1. How’s the across Canada tour so far?
Amazing!!! Absolutely bloody amazing. We are having a ball. Playing shows all across Canada, meeting and making new friends and most of all seeing your gorgeous country.
2. Which are your favourite Canadian cities to perform in?
So far all of them. Every single town on this tour has been so good to us . You guys are so supportive of Rock n Roll! It’s great. I don’t want this tour to end and we’re looking forward to the West Coast shows.
3. Tell us your experience working with superstar producer Garth “GGGArth” Richardson?
Working with Garth was an amazing experience. He’s very talented and just an all round legend! A great guy. Every moment recording with him was epic. We had so much fun. Garth has worked with some of the worlds all time greatest rock acts and I know for sure we all really learned a lot from him.
4. What was the inspiration for the new album?
We had been writing for quite some time and had a lot of new songs and a bunch of older songs. We wanted to share our music not only with Australia but with the world, which lead to our Canadian debut.
5. Who are your biggest musical influences?
For me it would have to be The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin. I’d also have to say Dave Grohl and Noel Gallagher are big influences as well.
Next week, The Lazys will be performing at The Roxy on November 13th. We are giving away 2 tickets to their concert and 1 CAT Rugged iPhone 5 case.
