Ivory Lake Goes into Detail On New Project and EP Release!

Having made this project just two years ago IVORY LAKE where the band would go on to play a ton of shows, leading to them writing a ton of songs! This would all lead to them writing and recording their debut EP out this New Year in 2021! Ivory Lake has so much more to be told, the main person behind it all goes into detail.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.  

Ivory Lake is a project I started back in 2019 while touring with Geoff Tate (previously of Queensryche), we played over 100 shows in six months over 26 country’s, so as you can imagine there’s a lot of down time on the tour bus. So I started writing a ton of songs and started putting them together in my own very dyslexic way. After putting out a demo I contacted Ville at the Animal Farm Management . He liked the stuff I had and from there we stared putting together an EP which will be out January 22nd 2021.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

Ivory Lake is a beautiful lake in New Zealand of which I had never even heard of before, the name came to me whilst I was sitting at a friends house under the influence…when the pool had this white glow to it and the ripples started to look like elephants were stabbing it from underneath with their tusks, hence the name Ivory Lake.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend? 

The band is based out in Southern Spain. The music scene here has been suffering for the last few years even before the pandemic hit. Which is why I prefer to get out and tour internationally, meet new people and see new places. Although it is suffering there are still some amazing artists.  I have to recommend  Mani Orrason for all the indie freaks.

4. How would you describe your style?

Idiosyncratic alt/pop -if I had to put it in a box. But I would say we thrive in the space in-between genre’s.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

My debut EP will be released on all platforms January 22nd 2021  and I’m super exited to share it.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

I always have new music in the works, creating is a never ending process for me. I have 2 full albums worth of songs all ready to take into the studio at some point this year.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out? 

I play a lot of local shows in southern Spain and we hope to tour the USA and UK later this year all being well.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band? 

We hope to record another EP mid 2021  and with some luck a full album towards the end of the year. After that complete world domination. 

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?  

You can listen to my debut EP on all platforms from the 22nd of January 2021.  

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time? 

I hope that it is an emotional journey. It's real, it makes the listener feel... Like somebody else knows.
