Chicago-based hardcore/metalcore quintet LUCA have just shared a music video for a brand new song titled “Vultures”.
Produced by Jeffery Krause and Pete Grossman, recorded and mixed by Pete Grossmann at Bricktop Recording and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege, “Vultures” is the first of a series of three singles planned for the coming months and will be included in a new EP tentatively set for release in early 2022.
This new video is now playing at Idioteq, who commented “Luca brings a heavy mix of metalcore and post-hardcore that is equally aggressive and melodic, a bit in the vein of bands like Everytime I Die and Bury Tomorrow, but with their own twist.”
Founded in 2014 by Nick Hopp (guitar), Andy Bisceglie (Drums), and Felipe Rodela Trujillo (guitar), LUCA was originally a melodic hardcore band, but soon expanded their sound to blend hardcore, metalcore, and emo on their most recent EP “Sink or Swim” (2019). After touring rigorously in support of the EP, LUCA returned to Bricktop Recording in March 2020 to track 3 new singles. Fate would have it that the Covid-19 pandemic descended at the very same time and the entire city of Chicago shut down the very next day after tracking had completed. With the future uncertain and endless free time due to quarantine, the band drafted a plan to bring the singles into a series of interconnected music videos. The videos strive to encapsulate the internal struggle experienced by the band during quarantine while also staying true to the subject matter of the lyrics.
