Lock Up, the band featuring bassist Shane Embury (Napalm Death, etc.), guitarist Anton Reisenegger (Brujeria), and vocalist Kevin Sharp (Venomous Concept, ex-Brutal Truth), have expanded their lineup. Vocalist Tomas Lindberg (At The Gates) has rejoined the band for the first time since 2014, and drummer Adam Jarvis (Pig Destroyer, Asthma Castle) has joined for the very first time.
"I can´t begin to explain how chuffed I am to be back with these, my favourite grinding beasts," said Lindberg. "When Shane approached me about rejoining, being part of a dual vokill attack together with Kevin, I said yes straight away. I love the Demonization album, and Kevin‘s vocal delivery there."
"So, I was very curious and excited to work together with him, writing and arranging lyrics. My idea is that we have very different vocal styles, and that deathgrind fans now will get the best of both worlds. Adding Adam Jarvis to the mix has been nothing but a success as well, his relentless bashing has mos def added an extra dimension to the Lock Up sound. It will be a total blast performing these new tracks in front of a crowd, these are full on old-school deathgrind ragers! Again; chuffed!"
"When Shane [Embury] first asked me to join the already elite league of extraordinary gentlemen I was beyond ecstatic!" added Jarvis. "THEN…. I find out Tompa was rejoining the band and I went bananas! So excited for everyone to hear what madness we’ve created so far, and for a double assault from Kevin and Tompa that is bound to make you want to punch stuff!"
Lock Up is working on a new album called The Dregs Of Hades due out sometime this year.
