Title - Under the Neon Heat
Artist - Greg Antista & The Lonely Streets
For those unaware, Greg Antista & The Lonely Streets have just released the digital single Down on Commonwealth, the lead track from the groups second album, Under the Neon Heat.
The single marks the debut of veteran guitarist Frank Agnew in the lineup and the album follows July 16th, 2021 on CD, download, and 180-gram hot pink vinyl!
The vinyl will be a strictly limited edition of 500 units and all formats come courtesy of Primal Beat Records and are available now for pre-order at Road Dog Merch.
The Lonely Streets are set to make good on the buzz generated by 2019s Shake, Stomp and Stumble, the debut album which featured nine party-starting songs anchored by indelible melodies, heartfelt vocals, and powerful musicianship.
New Noise Magazine described its tunes as perfectly-crafted, three-minute pop songs that owe as much to Johnny Cash as they do the Adolescents, while The Big Takeover compared the groups approach to a crunchier, power-pop-leaning Social Distortion.
Active in Southern California since 2018, the groups lineup is comprised of Greg Antista (lead vocals, songwriter, guitar), Frank Agnew (lead guitar, keyboards, vocals), Warren Renfrow (bass, accordion, vocals), and Jorge E. Disguster (drums, vocals).
The members previous group affiliations are extensive: Antista (Joyride, Foxy), Agnew (Adolescents, Legal Weapon, T.S.O.L., 45 Grave), Renfrow (Cadillac Tramps, Manic Hispanic, Final Conflict, and tours with Adolescents and the Damned), Disguster (The Hangmen, Mink Daggers, Mr. Mirainga, live shows with Throw Rag).
1. Down on Commonwealth
2. Feel Alright
3. Tijuana Jail
5. One More Mistake
6. Together Tonight
7. Lonesome Casualty
8. Unfinished Business
9. Broken Glass
10. Halfway to Whole
11. Carmelita (Warren Does Warren)
Opening on the ferociously upbeat and yet manically melodious and charming guitar work of Down on Commonwealth and the perky indie pop bounce of both the mosh pit skirmish of Feel Alright and the late 70s-fueled Tijuana Jail, they back those up with the euphoric yearning of the barnstormer Rosalita and the well-oiled rock hipsway of One More Mistake.
Next up from the Orange County veterans is the drum-led beauty Together Tonight the mid-tempo Lonesome Casualty, the balladry (well, for the first half, until the guitars strike up, of course) Unfinished Business, and the album then rounds out on the alt-energy of both Broken Glass and Halfway to Whole, coming to a close on the countrified Carmelita (Warren Does Warren) - featuring Warren Renfrow on lead vocals.
