I want to introduce you to Richmond, VA indie rock band Lance Bangs. The three-piece used to go by the name Collin Thibodeauxx, but have decided on a change as lead singer Colin Thibodeau was getting tired of using his own name and wanted to give bandmates, Joel Alicea (on bass) and Drew Lanzama (the drummer), equal standing. Their latest single, informatively named ‘Lance bangs #1 single released on 4/20’, is the first song the band has collectively written together and aims to “Maintain the band’s same up beat style with more of an aggressive fuzzed out twist”.
You can download the track for nothing over at the Lance Bangs Bandcamp page. The band are planning on releasing something more substantial in the summer too, so keep your eyes peeled for that. Finally, if you’re a Richmond native, get yourself along to see Lance Bangs in the flesh!
