Press Release from Lobate Scarp’s Kickstart crowdfounding
“Come with us on this journey as we create our second full-length album, You Have It All!”
Who is Lobate Scarp?
“We are a progressive space-opera rock band based in Los Angeles. Our influences range from classic prog-rock of the 70’s such as Genesis and Yes, to 80’s pop such as Simple Minds and Tears for Fears, as well as strong ties to musical theater.”
The iconic David A. Hardy, the world’s oldest living space artist, has once again created our cover artwork. The Limited Edition CD booklet will contain lyrics, credits, art, photos, and a bonus disc containing an entirely instrumental version of the album.
New Album- Progressing into new territory!
We’re super stoked and honored to have been chosen to play RoSfest 2020 (May 8,9,10) in Sarasota, Florida! Our goal is to have our new album ready for the masses by then. You Have It All will serve as an expansion to our 2019 EP Spirals and Portals interweaving the tracks within the album to tell a more cohesive story. It will consist of 7-9 tracks totaling more than an hour in length containing some powerful tracks such as “Conduit”, our first fully instrumental piece. It will include our latest single “Nothing Wrong”, an anthem of individuality and freedom, and our previous single “Beautiful Light” (our first waltz!) Progressive rock fans will especially appreciate the TWO 15-minute tracks we have planned. The title track is a strong, edgy piece made up of several parts. The final epic piece “Flowing With the Change” deals with acceptance of the past and looking into the future with exciting possibilities!
The epic-ness of this album steps up a notch with Billy Sherwood and Jon Davison , both from legendary band Yes, and Ryo Okumodo (from Spock’s Beard) making appearances as guest artists!
“Rich Mouser, whose mixing repertoire includes Spock’s Beard, Transatlantic, Neal Morse, will once again mix our album, as well as join as co-producer on many of the tracks. Steve Leavitt, producer of our debut album Time and Space, will also return to co-produce.”
With the help of Kickstarter, our debut album, Time and Space, was successfully funded and received some kinds words from progressive rock fans all over the world :
“One of the top 13 albums of 2013!” -TimeLord (Progarchy- USA)
“Absolutely brilliant stuff!” – Kevin Mulryne (Yes Music Podcast- UK)
“Great debut! highly recommended!” – Jürgen Meurer (Empire Music Magazine- Germany)
“[Time and Space] was clearly worth the wait. The time involved to bring this music to fruition is heard in every track; spotlessly produced and skillfully performed, the music is large and panoramic in scope. Highly recommended for fans of symphonic prog.”- Jerry Lucky (The Progressive Rock Files- Canada)
