LAKESHORE premiered their latest video for single “Mountain View” yesterday on Alternative Press. The band has announced the OK, Psychopath Tour that begins on April 29th in Chicago, Illinois in support of the release.
“We are super excited to share this song with everyone, not only does the song hold deep personal meaning to us, but working with such an accomplished producer as Sahaj Ticotin (Motley Crue, Starset) and Directer Tom Flynn (Buckcherry, Lamb Of God) really made this vision come together. We are very excited to share more music with you soon, and to see what else 2020 has in store.” – LAKESHORE
|Tell us a little bit about the band and how long you have been together for some of our readers that may not know about the band?Lakeshore was started by my brother and myself about two years ago. We like to consider ourselves a modern rock ‘n’ roll group with a fresh sound , having nostalgic undertones and a positive message.|
What got you into music and what keeps you going night after night playing?My father was in bands all my life so growing up I just naturally gravitated towards it. The music itself keeps me going. It is my passion.
So, what is new with the band?..New Album out? New Videos?
We just released a new song called “Mountain View” that premiered on Alternative Press. It was recorded by Sahaj Tacotin who recently did songs for Motley Crue for that movie ‘the dirt’. The music video was directed by Tom Flynn whose past projects include Lamb of God and Buckcherry. It was a pleasure working with both of them.

What do you feel is the best song you have released to date and why?.It’s definitely the latest single “Mountain View.” I am not only saying that because I like the song and believe in it, but the response has been super awesome so far so it’s very humbling.

If you could give your fans one random fact about you that you think they should (or should “not” know) about you what would that be?I am super into meditation, visualization and hypnosis.

You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why?One that includes all the colors in one – but not black .. just one that colors like a rainbow.
