Happy 2013!

Happy New Year!  We have a lot in store for 2013 including releasing our new EP "Halfway To Hell".  We are scheduled to start recording in the next couple of weeks with Jason Elgin producing.

The toughest part of the recording process for us is narrowing down the songs.  We always have a ton of songs to choose from (in many different styles of music), it's hard to pick the songs.  Every band goes through the thought process of "do we give our fans another album that sounds like what they've come to love and expect, or do we go outside the comfort zone and make a completely different record".  Lynam has always been about our fans AND being true to ourselves as artists, so we are going to do both this year.  The first EP (Halfway To Hell) will be in the vein of "Slave To The Machine" meets "Tragic City Symphony".  The next batch of songs after will be something a little different.

It confused a lot of people when we released "Thank You Good Night" and said that it would be our last record.  A lot of people assumed we were breaking up even though we stated that "we're not breaking up".  The thing is, the pattern for bands has always been to make a record, tour for a year (or more if the record is selling or building a buzz) and then repeat the process.  We decided that we would take a different path.  Technology allows us to do things today that simply wasn't an option when the old model of selling music was created.  With iTunes, social media sites, Youtube, etc., getting music out is easier than it has ever been.  We decided, instead of putting out a record every couple of years, we would record 5 song EP's, singles or whatever variation we are feeling at the time.  The bottom line is, even though we're done making full length records, there will be new music from Lynam!

2013 is going to be a great year.  In addition to Lynam, David has a radio show at, Jacob will be doing ADLER dates and Cody has started a clothing line called Trash Tribe.  Thank you for all of the support and we look forward to seeing everyone soon!
