The highly anticipated release of Delusions will cement the band’s place in the world of dark, melodic rock. Driven by lead singer/songwriter A.L.X., Love Crushed Velvet shows off exceptional emotional and stylistic range in lyric and musicality. A.L.X explains, “When we set out to record Delusions, our goal was to create a sound that demonstrated a natural evolution from the postpunk/classic rock influences of our debut album. While attempting to maintain some of the darker elements that are the essence of Love Crushed Velvet, a lot of focus went into crafting a sound that was ‘rock’, but not necessarily in the classic sense. With the lyrical content of the new songs, we really tried to dig deep and delve into uncomfortable territory.” Reminiscent of the glory days of rock and roll, Love Crushed Velvet has carved out a unique place in today’s music world, paying homage to the past while remaining firmly grounded in the present.
Love Crushed Velvet’s upcoming EP Delusions is a powerful force that touches upon the complications of love, fame and our global society. The EP begins right at the apex, with its premiere single “Revolution Time”, capturing an unyielding spirit of upheaval inspired by the personal experiences and perspective of A.L.X.. Love Crushed Velvet maintains the unwavering strength of a revolution high throughout the entirety of Delusions.
