Lost Romance

"In an era of television music idols, internet video sensations and interchangeable indie bands that are
about as edgy as a pair of mom jeans, Lost Romance harkens back to an earlier, simpler time. With a
plug in and play brash rock sound that is just as home with the likes of The Replacements, Husker Du
and The Lemonheads as it is with Nirvana, Buffalo Tom and fellow New Brunswick, NJ natives The
Smithereens and The Gaslight Anthem.

Since late 2011, LR have made a name for themselves throughout the North East as a live act to be
reckoned with. Averaging close to 100 tour dates a year, the band has been winning over fans from
Maine all the way to Florida with raw, honest rock n' roll. They have shared digital space on comps
with Real Estate, The Front Bottoms, Nicole Atkins, La Sera and have shared stages with Rye
Coalition & TAB the Band to name a few. In addition they have also been nominated for several
Hoboken Music Awards including Outstanding Male Solo and E.P. of the year.

In 2013, LR signed with Los Angeles based independent label, Starving Dog Records and released
their debut E.P. “The Light And The Dark”. A mix of power pop, raging guitars and strong melodies, it
gained ground in both press and social media as well as radio including WDHA 105.5FM, one of the
biggest rock stations in New Jersey. The band toured heavily throughout 2013 into 2014 in support of
the album culminating in a 10 city East Coast tour in October 2014. The tour kicked off with Lost
Romance being chosen as one of only a handful of bands to play ReverbNation's showcase at the
CBGB Festival 2014 in NYC and ended up taking the band as far south as Florida.

2014 also saw the recording of Lost Romance's first full length album. Going back to basics, the new
tracks were recorded in Jersey City, NJ at LR bassist Dan Haag's (The Astrojet, Benzos, Jody Porter &
The Black Swans) basement studio on four track cassette. With drums and guitars recorded live to tape,
there was no room for error. Drummer Mohamed Amine Smires (The Butcher Knives) and guitarist
Gerry Perlinski locked in solid for these intense and sweaty recording sessions during the summer to
make for a truly authentic vibe.

2015 started with Lost Romance playing Light Of Day Benefit in Asbury Park, NJ for the third year in
a row alongside such luminaries as Suzanne Vega, Johnny Rzeznik (Goo Goo Dolls), Willie Nile, John
Eddie and the Boss himself, Bruce Springsteen. Lost Romance's Gerry Perlinski was asked by the
charity to curate a Spotify playlist to help promote the yearly event.

The next several years saw major touring throughout the East Coast, Mid-West, Mid-South and West
Coast along with performances at CMJ in NYC and NAMM shows in Anaheim and Nashville
respectively. In addition, endorsements were made with Framus Guitars and Fishman Pickups.

2020 saw the release of their first full length album, “Strum It Again” on their own Okazia Records.
With the single, 'Heart On A Wire' being pushed to radio as well as video, they gained traction across
the U.S. The video was played on nearly 100 video channels throughout the US including placements
on terrestrial TV music shows.

2022 is seeing the band back in the studio recording a new single along with drummer Steve Ferrone
(Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers) and bassist Jack Daley (Lenny Kravitz, Little Steven). Touring has
also picked up and plans for both a West Coast and East Coast tour are being planned. "
