A Life Once Lost to play at visit pub after SXSW gigWritten by Matt Liasse | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Fresh off of their South By Southwest festival gig, A Life Once Lost will play at Mickey Finn’s Pub on March 21.
The band will celebrate their recent release “Ecstatic Trance,” which is a “psychedelic metal jam record,” Doug Sabolick said. He said the album is influenced by psychedelic sounds of Jimi Hendrix, among others.
The album took a year to write and was released on Oct. 22, 2012. It features the songs “Something Awful,” “Empty Form” and “The Blues.”
A Life Once Lost formed in 1999, which Sabolick said comes with challenges.
“There’s always challenges when you’re a band for a long time,” he said. “People are always looking for something new … so sometimes if you’re around for a long time, people always associate you with one thing.”
Sabolick said because of that, they try to sound fresh with every album.
The current band also includes Jordan Crouse and Chris Piola. They will make their way to Toledo from Austin, where they were for SXSW. Sabolick said the setlist will be similar, but the Mickey Finn’s show will be longer.
