Founding Emmure members and brothers Ben Lionetti and Joe Lionetti have launched a new band by the name of Lakeshore. They exited the Emmure lineup back in 2009 and were responsible for the band’s music up until that point. Now, in conjunction with producer Ken Susi (Unearth, The Contortionist) and a number of new members, they’re poised to make waves through this new project.
They released their first single / music video “History” last month. Now, they’ve released their second single / music video “Kings” featuring none other than Karl Schubach (ex-Misery Signals) and Jessie Freeland (The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza)!
Ben Lionetti had the following to say of this, “The song ‘Kings’ was really conceived about my time working with Mitch Lucker (Suicide Silence) and after his passing. ‘Kings’ really took on a life of its own and morphed into just a fun heavy song with a self-empowering message, and that’s something Mitch wanted to create. We wanted the music video to have a real night and day / yin and yang vibe and wanted to tell our listeners we’re not going to be held down by whatever generic genre standards people think a band should abide by. I think you can start to hear and feel that from the first music video ‘History’ to our video for ‘Kings’. We’re excited to get the rest of the record out there to really start showing people what Lakeshore is really about.”
