Emerging from Nashville, Tennessee, Lockstep delivers a unique sonic experience that is both punishing and atmospheric. Drawing inspiration from various genres, including post-rock, shoegaze, doom, and noise rock, Lockstep finds their place alongside other esteemed acts like Jesu, Holy Fawn, and Nothing.
The band has recently released their latest single and accompanying video, “Weave,” which offers a haunting and ethereal opening, featuring dual vocals that perfectly set the tone for the pulsing climax that follows. The lush rhythms of the track provide a sonically rich backdrop to the poignant lyrics that speak to the transformation of a negative mindset.
In “Weave,” Lockstep once again showcases their ability to craft a sonically complex and emotionally resonant piece of music.
“Weave” stems from the band’s upcoming EP, Arrival, set for release on May 19th. The EP was self-produced and recorded by the band with guitarist Matt Schumacher taking the lead on tracking and mixing, and mastering was done by Zac Montez (Cloakroom, Keep). Arrival marks Lockstep’s first proper release, following their two song output, Lockstep 1, released in April 2021. More details to come.
Lockstep is comprised of Austin Rolison (Drums and Vocals), Matt Schumacher (Guitar and Vocals), and Tanner Ihrie (bass).
