HELLBOUND GLORY ANNOUNCE:
New Release: “LV” Pre-Order & Digital Release on May 13th
HELLBOUND GLORY has announced the forthcoming digital release of “LV.” The five-song collection of new material is being made available exclusively to digital retail and streaming services; available now for iTunes Pre-Order and wide digital-release on May 13th.
A video for “Streets of Aberdeen,” shot by Ryan Short of King of Hearts Productions, is slated for premiere on May 6th in advance of the official release date.
Taking its title from, front man, Leroy Virgil’s initials; “LV” was recorded in the songwriter’s original hometown, and music mecca, Aberdeen, Washington.
Longtime friend, musician, and Aberdeen native, Brian Smith who was tapped to co-produce, record, engineer, and mix the session explains, “I took a 6 year hiatus from recording, but I kept the room and the gear… This was the project that made me want to pull the sheets back and dust it off.”
Smith is no stranger to Virgil, first recording the young singer at age 15. Smith continues, “Even at 15, I could recognize his talent.”
“LV” is an exploration of the legacy and ghosts of Aberdeen’s distant and recent past, including Virgil’s own. Virgil explains, “I grew up in Aberdeen, WA and spent half my time on my stepdad’s oyster farm and the other half on those streets. When the song “Streets of Aberdeen” came to me, it opened up a floodgate of memories, emotions, and stories. I knew I had to go back there to capture what it was like for me growing up. These are the most personal recordings I’ve ever done.”
