Lost Society on Sunday 24th February 2019
Manchester Academy presents
Throughout the history of modern popular music, bands have been formed for different reasons. Some for fame, some for money, others just to pass the time. Most of these bands have since long disappeared into the aether but a few, started with the right intentions, still prevail.
Founded by frontman Samy Elbanna in 2010 when the guys were still in their teens, LOST SOCIETY began rapidly claiming fame as a formidable live act in and around their hometown of Jyväskylä, Finland.
A literal fuckload of shows later, the band returned with “Braindead” (2016), their mostdynamically mature and profound effort yet. Even though none of the anthemic quality that made LOST SOCIETY ideal material for a good night out was lost, the album had a distinctly darker and heavier tone. While still containing a party anthem or two, lyrically “Braindead” dealt mostly with the ills of modern man and a burning desire to change the world for the better. 'Pound your drinks and scream with me! This is the new society!' (Rage Me Up) The band then embarked on a European tour with thrash legends EXODUS, leaving a trail of full-blown chaos in their wake. The album was yet another success for LOST SOCIETY, truly cementing their position on the threshold of becoming one of the leading forces in the field of modern thrash metal.
