Time for the next edition of Metal Anarchy’s “new music showcase,” the feature where I introduce you to bands that readers of this site may find interesting. This time I have an exclusive Q&A with Lure In.
METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your band:
LURE IN: We are a chaotic metalcore band based in Manchester, we started in 2018 as a bedroom project between Myself (Cameron) & our bassist Jonny, after the release we where looking for new members for the band so James (guitarist), Jake (guitarist) & Sammy (drummer) joined the 2 of us & we all started playing shows & writing music, then in 2020 we released our debut record Subdued, & after that a 2 track & a split record.
METAL ANARCHY: Who are your main influences?
LURE IN: It’s a mix of alot of things, the main consistent influence is bands that where apart of the early 00’s metalcore scene, bands like The Dillinger Escape Plan, Converge, Botch, Norma Jean, Underoath, and we like to mix that in with elements of our current listening habits, be that drum and bass, pop, hip hop, whatever, we try & incorporate what we can & see what we can make of it.
METAL ANARCHY: What is your latest release and why should readers of this site check it out?
LURE IN: I believe the best look at what we are is the recent split release we put out with Worm Hero, In my opinion I believe it’s the most up to date look of what the band is and what different avenues we want to push, no song is similar to the other & that’s the way we operate.
METAL ANARCHY: What can people expect when they go to your live shows?
LURE IN: In terms of a live set we encourage a pretty chaotic live environment, be respectful of the venues mind but we feel that given the style of band we are we aren’t exactly going to have the most calm live show, especially as we’ve been pretty much out of action for over a year. I honestly believe we’re going to be at our best & most unhinged for when we get back on a stage.
METAL ANARCHY: Where do you see your band heading in 5 years?
LURE IN: It’s always a hard question if we get asked this as we don’t really have a tunnel vision plan, sometimes to our detriment, but I’d say in the next 5 years the plan is to keep creating music, get back to playing live shows & playing everywhere we can & go with the flow of things, that way of thinking hasn’t really gone wrong for us so if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.
