Stuck between a myriad of responsibilities on the one hand and a complete cultural standstill on the other, LOTUS dove into the studio in-between covid lockdowns to do away with a stifling period of creative nothingness. With the help of Thomas Valkiers, the band sought out a rawer, more analogue sound without moving away from the intensity LOTUS has been known for all these years. The result is a no frills attached 5-track EP that perfectly captures the LOTUS spirit: to live and die by the minute and a bit.
Side B of this record features Ship Of Fools, a brand-new musical endeavour by Martijn (Angstgegner, Otis, Schelles) and Joep (Pressure Pact, Bare Hands, The Cosmosians, Demarcation Line) that started out as a 2-man project in 2019, but has grown into a full band in 2022. 7 fresh tracks of high-speed and brutally honest punk rock tie together their two EPs recorded at the iconic Studio 195 in November of 2019 and May of 2020. Sporting a band name that pays homage to the Canadian band Fucked Up, expect a comparable batch of groovy deliciousness!
LOTUS/SHIP OF FOOLS - split EP is available on black or coke bottle green vinyl.
