Lochness Monster Loom Large, Cause Damage on Multi-Layered New EP “Working for a Future”

Miami-based Alternative Rock Band Lochness Monster will release their 2nd EP “Working for a Future” on February 3, 2022. Heavy, multi-layered and emotion-powered, this new release showcases Lochness Monster‘s knack for expansive, gripping rock music.

“Working for a Future” will include 3 new songs (Atlas, Glass Jar, and Running Away) and an alternate version of one of their fan favorites, “Pendulum,” with Bruce Donaldson on vocals.

Andy Van Dette at Engine Room Audio NYC has mastered all of their material to date. James Paul Wisner recorded, mixed, and produced the alternate version of Pendulum.

“We pushed ourselves more during the songwriting process on this release and made sure we tried every avenue possible until the song sounded its best in a live environment. We didn’t put any time constraints on ourselves we just wanted to put out songs that we felt were at their best before we entered the studio phase and even in the studio there wasn’t a lot of adding extra layers to the song but more of an emphasis on presenting the song in its true form. The vibe I get from this release is it’s authentically us but hard to classify into a genre, and each song is like the yin to the others yang.” – Justin Shaner, Guitarist/Songwriter

“The journey we took working on this collection of music is one that has been challenging and rewarding for me in many different ways. It gave me an opportunity to express emotions and feelings from my life in a way that I feel others can connect with their own journey through life.  I have found a new sense of patience working through the creative and recording process, in part due to external complications in the world, but mostly through spending time finding what it is I need to say in my art opposed to just what I want to say.  My intention is that people find a message of hope and perseverance in the melodies and lyrics and also that they can find themselves in the story.  I hope they can let go for a moment…and breathe out.” – Bruce Donaldson, Singer
