Lockjaw releases debut full length LP
LOCKJAW has released their debut studio full-length, ‘Relentless’. Propelled by the strength of past singles like “Breaking Point” and “Living In My Head”, the group has announced a new distribution partnership with All Independent Service Alliance (AISAUS). AISAUS began this relationship with LOCKJAW by re-releasing the band’s previous singles worldwide via The Orchard. This new momentum looks to build beyond the album release, as the band will be hitting the road this summer – dates to be announced soon!
‘Relentless’ was released on July 7, 2023, with distribution via AISAUS/The Orchard. The album will be released on all major streaming platforms, and is available for pre-order on vinyl via the band’s official website HERE.
LOCKJAW is a metal/hard rock band based out of Dallas/Fort Worth, TX. While they continue to emerge on the radars of a whole new crop of fans, the group has a history of making music together that goes back more than two decades – tracing back to friendships that began in their high school days. Over time, the scene in which they cut their teeth and the music that came from those early beginnings might look different from the present, but LOCKJAW has never been interested in chasing trends. These talented musicians have the vision to make their own music and truly give it their all. The quintet’s upcoming studio album is a perfect example of their defiant-yet-charismatic approach to songwriting and performance, going for an urgent, no-frills sound that favors the well-honed connection between these musicians, rather than hiding their work under excessive layers of studio trickery. The band’s 2022 single, “Breaking Point”, serves as an unapologetic example of this philosophy. The mix is balanced and detail-oriented, making for a lively sonic approach. Listeners will instantly take notice of the roaring walls of guitar and the energetic rhythm section, but if you dive deeper, there is a lot more to uncover. The dynamic spectrum of the track is very balanced, with a tight yet deep low end that really growls, holding it all together while adding some aggressive edge to the sound. These expressions of creative integrity are the backbone that LOCKJAW intends to build their rise on. In a landscape where others can so easily get caught in the latest tides, this DFW five-piece has keyed in on where their passions lie, and are more than ready to swim against the current.
