LOCKSLEY’S “ON FIRE” ON SCREAM 4 SOUNDTRACK
Locksley are excited to announce the release of their new self-titled album, due out July 12th on NYC based label Feature Records. As a lead up to the release of the album, Locksley are releasing the digital single for “The Whip” today, April 12th, with the b-side “Oh, Wisconsin!” “The Whip” has been taking off at top 40 radio, scoring ads at regional stations across the nation as well as on the national satellite radio channel Sirius XM Hits 1. The song “Oh, Wisconsin!” remains a testament to the band’s home state, and they continue to donate proceeds from sales of the mp3 to charities benefiting Wisconsin public schools.
Highlights so far this year include having their music played during the Superbowl, opening for Big Boi, and performing for CNN and MTV at SXSW. Most recently their song “On Fire” was selected as the end title to Scream 4 and as part of the Soundtrack. They were thrilled to be in same company of other great artists featured on the soundtrack including the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Ida Maria, Say Hi, and The Sounds to name a few. The soundtrack is also out today April 12th, and is being released by Lakeshore Records.
Locksley are a four-piece rock band out of Madison, WI who now call New York City home. Over the past few years as an unsigned act, they’ve built up an impressive list of accomplishments. Among those are sales of over 60,000 albums worldwide, playing as the backing band for Kinks legend Ray Davies, performing on Jimmy Kimmel Live and Late Night with Conan Obrien, and most recently, their first adds to top 40 radio for the song “The Whip.” Without the benefit of a major label marketing machine, fans have gravitated to Locksley’s infectious sound, which mixes 50’s rock ‘n’ roll with modern garage, coming off as what could be described as a more refined version of The Exploding Hearts or The Dirtbombs covering Buddy Holly & The Crickets.
