NEW YORK, NY. (February 12, 2021) - The Long Losts new album At This Late Hour  is the continued tale of two lovers wondering hand and hand through a night filled with ghosts and memory. It’s romantic, energetic, gothic, punk rock.

Made up of vocalist Anka and her husband/guitarist Patrick, The Long Losts began in 2012 when the couple reunited after a long break and got married. Their story of two long lost lovers finding their way back to each other gave them the name The Long Losts. Over the next 2 years they wrote and recorded 10 songs eventually becoming their first album, a love letter to Halloween, Autumn, horror and each other called Scary Songs To Play In the Dark. In 2017 they released their 2nd album, To night... 

 

Their latest album At This Late Hour is their most personal so far. Dealing with the emotion of leaving someone you love and the joy that comes with returning back to them. In this life or the next. It also touches upon loss and finding the place where we ultimately belong. Working with Hillary Johnson of Earthlight Room they set out for a sound that was a kin to the guitar driven bands that they love within the dark rock genre such as Skeletal Family, Sisters Of Mercy, Specimen and the like. Something that rocked, had punk energy,  without being in your face heavy.

Praise for The Long Losts
