Bad For Lazarus have enlisting the spine tingling vocal skills of The Duke Spirit’s Liela Moss on new single ‘7 Minute Itch’ and accompanying video.
Taken from their debut album ‘Life’s A Carnival, Bang! Bang! Bang!’ released on 1-2-3-4 Records last year, ‘7 Minute Itch’ is a tale of a crazed ex girlfriend. This may sound like one of those awful cliches but the lady in question here is quite something as Rich Fownes from the band describes;
“We have a rule in the band that we don’t touch lyrical clichés . A song about a turbulent girlfriend would usually top that list… but what I experienced was a little out of the ordinary. I don’t know why she wanted me to be there so much, except to berate and control me, but the aforementioned nutcase kept me around with constant suicide threats if I looked like I was leaving for the night. When I finally broke free and called her bluff I got 150 (no joke) texts a day. They ranged from waffling apologies to fierce and direct threats on my life.”
To get to the very essence of this story, Bad For Lazarus felt the song needed a female lead vocal so they enlisted the skills of close friend Liela Moss from The Duke Spirit and Roman Remains.
