The L.A. Maybe Premiere “When I’m Gone” Video

The L.A. Maybe, the band featuring Alvi Robinson, the man who famously lost his job to audition for AC/DC in 2016, have premiered a new video for their song “When I’m Gone.” This track is from their latest album “Dirty Damn Tricks.”

Dallas Dwight commented:

“In 2015 a close friend of the band committed suicide. While we can’t ever fully erase the pain of such an event, we wrote “When I’m Gone” as a form of therapy and to hopefully inspire others with a message of hope.

This video is our most ambitious effort yet. Filmed over two months, across 5 beautiful locations around the Southeastern United States…we shot through pouring rain, searing heat, and breathtaking scenery.

It was our goal to have the visuals capture and reflect the emotional nature of the song and its meaning. Most of all, it’s a tribute to our friend and we hope it can help others through their own dark moments.”

The L.A. Maybe Premiere “Oh Sugar” Video

The L.A. Maybe, the band featuring Alvi Robinson, the man who famously lost his job to audition for AC/DC in 2016, have premiered a new video for their song “Oh Sugar.” This track is from the group’s latest album “Dirty Damn Tricks.” Guitarist Dallas Dwight commented:

“For ‘Oh Sugar’ we knew we wanted to capture the fun vibes that the song portrayed and to do that, we didn’t have to look any further than our hometown. A bar / arcade (or “barcade”, if you will) right in our hometown of Rock Hill, SC – Player 1 Up – was the perfect location. Filled with classic arcade games, many representing the bands that influence our own music, the venue is saturated with rich colors that really made this video pop. Over two riotous days of shooting, we put together what you see in the final video!”

Album Review: The L.A. Maybe’s “Dirty Damn Tricks”

The L.A. Maybe, the band featuring Alvi Robinson, the man who famously lost his job to audition for AC/DC in 2016, will be releasing their new album “Dirty Damn Tricks” on Friday (March 26) and it is a must have for any rock fan.

The record opens with “Mr. Danger,” a song that sounds like it came straight out of the Australian rock scene, whether it be AC/DC or Airbourne. The track pumps the listener up, before “Sucker Punch” breaks in with more of a Guns N’ Roses sound.

As one moves further through the album, they will continue to find hard-hitting tracks such as “Oh Sugar” and “She’s Reckless.” The latter has a sound reminiscent of Charm City Devils and it definitely stands out as one of the highlights on the effort.

Straight up rockers aren’t the only thing that the band have to offer either. After “She’s Reckless,” the group begin to slow things down a bit with “Peace of Mind,” before going full-on power ballad with “When I’m Gone,” which has a southern tinged musicality that almost resembles songs like Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Tuesday’s Gone” at times.

After “When I’m Gone,” things pick up again with “Take Me Away” and “Sweet.” “Take Me Away” is especially catchy with an 80s vibe akin to acts like L.A. Guns and Faster Pussycat. That song gives way to the final tracks on the album, “Fake” and “Up Next To You,” which wrap things up the way they started, with blasts of AC/DC and Guns N’ Roses style hard rock.

All in all, “Dirty Damn Tricks” is an amazing album that only further proves the fact that rock music is alive and well.

The L.A. Maybe Premiere “Sucker Punch” Video

The L.A. Maybe, the band featuring Alvi Robinson, the man who famously lost his job to audition for AC/DC in 2016, have premiered a new video for their new song “Sucker Punch.” This track is from the group’s new album “Dirty Damn Tricks,” which will be released on March 26. The band commented:

“For our second single, we wanted to showcase a slightly different side of the band. “Sucker Punch” is a high-energy rocker that comes together when you combine a huge rock anthem chorus with a relentless driving groove, sprinkle in some Southern Carolina heat, and bring it all into the 21st Century. This track is an anthem for those who fly the flag of the New Wave of American Rock. It’s about always being told no, but never accepting defeat. But most of all, it’s a call to arms for rock n’ roll fans everywhere to stand up, get loud, and to never let the music die without a hell of a fight.”
