L.A. Guns, featuring Phil Lewis and Tracii Guns, have released the new song ‘Let You Down’, along with a lyric video. Written and recorded last month while working on their new studio album, the band told MetalTalk that they were so struck by it that they decided to release it now, rather than let it sit for a while.

Vocalist Phil Lewis told MetalTalk that ‘Lie You Down’ “..is a deep haunting work and words from a tormented soul. It was recorded during quarantine, so Tracii laid down his guitar tracks in Denmark, I did my vocals at home in Las Vegas and Adam Hamilton played drums and mixed it in LA.

“Under normal circumstances, it would have been recorded in a more traditional way, but somehow the isolation adds to the atmosphere of this very cool song. I’m sure you’re going to love it. Cheers.”

Guitarist Tracii Guns adds: “This song just appeared at the right time, while we were writing and recording on different continents. As we won’t be performing any time soon, it seems like the type of song that our fans can hold on to for a while.”

L.A. Guns are currently writing and recording songs for a new studio album tentatively due for release via Frontiers Music Srl later this year at the earliest.

This will be the third studio album since the reunion of the band’s core foundation of vocalist Phil Lewis and guitarist Tracii Guns.

It will follow the well received studio albums ‘The Missing Peace’ and ‘The Devil You Know’, plus the live ’Made In Milan” and covers EP, ‘Another Xmas In Hell’.
