Lazy Red Cheeks is an Alternative Rock 5-piece from Sint-Truiden (Belgium)
Blending their influences in a manner that defies stereotypical classification sets Lazy Red Cheeks apart from their contemporaries, imbuing everything they do with a distinctive sound and feel. With the new single ‘Gloom’, Lazy Red Cheeks have dramatically built upon their stunning debut album ‘All Systems Go …’.
Tracking ‘Gloom’ at Woodpecker Studios in the region of Ghent, the band recruited the GRAMMY-award winning producer/mixer Mario Borgatta (Muse / Weezer / Biffy Clyro / Bush) located in Los Angeles, USA and mastering guru Alan Douches (Mastodon / Motörhead / Thrice / A Day To Remember) located in New York, USA. "Both Mario and Alan have worked on some of our favorite albums,” state vocalist Ruben Delanghe & lead guitarist Rob Vandenborne. “it was important we found people we could fully entrust to help steer the ship into the direction we had in mind, Alan and Mario both fitted the bill perfectly.”
Comprised of vocalist Ruben Delanghe, bassist Wouter Put, drummer Willem Vennekens, guitarists Rob Vandenborne and Maarten Vekemans, each member came to Lazy Red Cheeks from a different background in the contemporary alternative music. Their debut album ‘All Systems Go …’ was such a dynamic and accomplished record produced by Alessio Di Turi (The Sore Losers) which made it clear that the whole was very much more than the sum of its parts. A substantial touring campaign followed, sharing stages with the likes of The Van Jets, Rival Sons, Zornik, Daan, The Sore Losers, Black Box Revelation, Equal Idiots, Les Truttes, DeWolff and Iggy Pop establishing them as both a distinct musical entity and formidable live act.
With ‘Gloom’ under their collective belt the five members of the band are already looking to the touring that lies ahead, and the ambitiousness embodied in their music also extends to their live shows. "We are all extremely proud of this new direction we’re headed, and can't wait to explore the music in the live environment. Having that direct interaction with an audience, each single person, is an unbeatable feeling."
