Austin Lucas Reflects on The Times – A Twangville Premiere
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2020 BY MAYER DANZIG
Austin Lucas has never been one to pull his punches so one shouldn’t expect him to do so now. Alive in the Hot Zone, his forthcoming album, finds him reflecting on the jarring tumult of 2020 from a unique viewpoint – an American sequestered in Germany.
There, isolated from family and friends at home, he’s watched social, economic, and political tumult roil the US alongside even as the Covid pandemic has swept across the country. Lucas channeled his feelings into an album teeming with apprehension, determination, and intensity. True to form, his lyrics are raw and penetrating, in this case accompanied by resolute electric guitars.
