Sunderland alternative rock band Carved Lies will be raising a glass to their new album with a launch party at a city centre pub.
Pareidolia will be launched on March 28 upstairs in The Borough in Vine Place.
The band will be supported by Lingua Vulgaris and Dead Like Wolves while DK Promotions will be doing the sound.
After starting life as a duo, Carved Lies recently became a trio and now consist of David I’Anson on guitar/vocals, Dave Jameson on bass and Andy Fletcher on drums.
Dave Jameson said: “The new album is a concept album. It goes from someone losing his mind to being sectioned. While sectioned he has delusions/fantasies about being in the outside world but struggles on whether these delusions are actually really happening.
“Pareidolia means that you can vaguely make something out (sight/hearing) that isn’t actually there but your brain tells you otherwise. It’s the same idea with the concept of the album, except his ‘visions’ leads to his inevitable demise.”
The album follows last Halloween’s single/music video release, The Grip, which is also on self-produced Pareidolia.
Physical copies will be available at gigs and eventually at Hot Rats in Stockton Road. It can also downloaded from iTunes and Amazon and from the band’s page www.carvedlies.bandcamp.com.
Pareidolia CDs will be £4 for launch night only and t-shirts will be £7 or you can buy both for £10.
l Doors open at 8pm for the launch party. Entry is £2.
