LP - Lifestyles - Lifestyles
Gossip Wolf has loved local rockers Lifestyles (featuring members of Lil Tits, Touched by Ghoul, and Foul Tip) since they released a scorching demo in 2014—at the time, this very column described it as a "Babes in Toyland-style alt-rock apocalypse." Last week the band dropped their s/t debut full-length via Bandcamp and next week Chicago label Max Pelt releases the LP. The album has this wolf feeling "Sub Pop grunge in a sweaty-assed basement" vibes—it even closes with a song from the perspective of suicide cult Heaven's Gate, who famously tried to catch a UFO ride off earth from San Diego in 1997. Singer and guitarist Hanna Hazard says Lifestyles recently added new guitarist Aaron Preusch (from Truck or Dead Horse) and head out on a midwest tour this weekend.
