Over the years, I have listened to a lot of music and if I had to make a list of my favorite bands, Lucky Boys Confusion would have to be on that list. In case you have not heard of them before, they are a rock band out of the Chicago area that formed back in 1997. Their music style can be described as a mix of rock, pop, punk, reggae, and world music. They released several great albums over the years but had been on a hiatus since their last release in 2009.
I first discovered Lucky Boys Confusion many years ago when their single “Fred Astaire” was on the radio, but it was not until years later when I saw them in concert and got a chance to listen to some of their albums that I really became a big fan. They have so many good songs and a wide range of musical style. I went to many of their concerts and still remember the time my friends and I had to figure out how to get into one of their concerts because it was all sold out.
A few months back, there was some exciting news that LBC was starting to record new songs and was actually in the process of putting together a new album. I was a little worried because often when bands take a lot of time off and then try to come back and recreate what they had before, it does not work out very well. Thankfully, with Lucky Boys, it is like they have not missed a beat. The new music is sounding as good as ever!
Leading up to the new album, I was able to hear a few of the new songs including “It's After Midnight”, “Sun In My Eyes”, and “Stormchaser”. All 3 are quality songs that are very catchy and were stuck in my head all day after just one or two listens.
After much anticipation, the wait is finally over and the new album Stormchasers is available now! You can check it out on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, Bandcamp, as well as order physical copies and merchandise from their official site.
I just listened to the full album today and it sounds great! The songs are powerful, heartfelt, and a good representation of a matured band that has been through a lot and is still going strong. If you are a fan of Lucky Boys Confusion or if you are new to the band and looking to discover some new music, I highly recommend checking out the new album!
