Lakesigns is a four-piece rock band from Chicago formed in 2009. They have self-recorded and released two EPs and two LPs including their latest full-length album, Husk, released February 26, 2013.
In 2012 they contributed a song, “Sunset Limited” from their first album, Imboden Hoxie, to a charity compilation, Border Songs (they appear on disc two, two songs after Calexico and three before Pete Seeger). Another song from their debut album, “Downtown” closed out the pilot episode of HBO’s “Single Long.”
The band has gigged extensively in Chicago, at Bottom Lounge, Martyr’s and Subterranean among many others. They have gone on four semi-national tours, one out to the east coast on up to Maine and three others down south and to Texas, home of their label, Pandarosa Records.
second full-length album, Husk,
is the result of one year of intensive writing and recording in the band’s
basement in Chicago, USA. After the band’s original drummer left in February
2012 having recorded drum tracks for Lakesigns’ newest songs, the four remaining
members of the band decided to temporarily forgo the hustle of life as a live
band and instead focus all their energies on crafting—doing justice to—this
batch of songs.
