Russian rockers LOUNA are pleased to share a new, exclusive video interview with Revolver Magazine. In the interview, the band discusses the new album Behind a Mask, rewriting their songs in English, misconceptions about LOUNA based on stereotypes, and more. You can watch the video now at Revolvermag.com.
LOUNA is poised to take over the American hard-rock scene with their new album, Behind A Mask, in-stores and available online April 30, 2013 via Red Decade Records and MEG/RED. Behind A Mask will open the eyes and ears of the American rock music scene by showcasing the pure blistering talent of LOUNA and the soaring vocals of the band’s lead singer Lousine “Lou” Gevorkian (in a world that has become immersed in autotune and over-production, Behind A Mask boasts true musical talent with only 10-15 seconds of vocal correction on the entire 45-minute record). Behind A Mask features 10 of the band’s best songs from their first two albums and have been painstakingly adapted into English by American producer and lyricist Travis Leake (the SLoT). The album was mixed by renowned producer/engineer Dan Korneff (Breaking Benjamin, The Pretty Reckless, Papa Roach, My Chemical Romance, Paramore) and mastering duties were handled by the legendary Ted Jensen of Sterling Sound, New York.
You can pre-order Behind a Mask now at Amazon.com. As of last month, the band released two new tracks, Business and Mama, via iTunes and Amazon. Download the tracks at the links below.

LOUNA released their first album, Let’s Get Louder in December of 2010, selling out every venue during their first national tour of Russia supporting the album.

Along with this, LOUNA was nominated for Breakthrough Artist and Solo Performance of the year. Their second album, The Time of X, released in February of 2012 has already produced a #1 single, Mama, and their most recent single People Looking Up entered the Russian charts in the top 10.
