LIT SOUL is a hard-driving melodic hard rock band from Los Angeles that advocates liberty in the modern age.
LIT SOUL, known for their substantial views on life and politics, and belief in a better world, released their sixth album, ‘Your Crusade,’ with legendary producer Bill Metoyer (Slayer/Armored Saint/Sacred Reich/Fates Warning) on November 19th, 2017.
The band’s first single off the the six-song EP is entitled “You Blessed My Eyes With Your Cruelty,” and it truly is a masterpiece. It takes the band to an entirely different level with a new and fuller sound, and it goes in a musical direction they have not touched yet while remaining within the LIT SOUL musical umbrella.
In its full form, YBMEWYC is a whopping seven minutes and forty-four seconds long. Current fans are going to be impressed with this number, and the band definitely will be gaining new fans from untouched markets, such as those into Love Metal and Romanticore.
The video for “You Blessed My Eyes With Your Cruelty” was directed and edited by Matt Zane/Lord Zane Rising, and has been receiving an overwhelmingly positive response in the short time that it’s been out. It touches on important controversial issues that are currently happening in various parts of the world.
‘Your Crusade’ is a follow-up to their 2014 album, ‘Love At War.’ Previous releases also include ‘Seven Worlds,’ ‘Libertine Dream,’ ‘Poetry,’ and a Birthday Poetry CD that contains some of Rob Chevelle’s most up-close-and-personal art to date.
Founding member Rob Chevelle describes their music as “Dark, yet positive.” He likes the lyrics to be positive and bring people through a whole scale of human emotions. If you really look at LIT SOUL’s lyrics, and some of the links that Rob Chevelle puts on his website and social media, you’ll see that he believes in Liberty, Freedom, and the Truth… What this Country was really built on. To Rob, rock n’ roll has always been about going against the establishment and the status-quo.Band Members
