West Palm's balls-out rock champs Lavola, subject of a lengthy treatise in this week's print edition by Alex Rendon, will demolish Propaganda's stage this very evening. The cause for celebration is a new EP, titled Leaving Paris, released tonight.
For those needing additional magnetism to draw to the event, Rendon argues:
"Throughout the EP, Cires' searing, Thom Yorke-inspired
(by his own admission) vocals and jarring fretwork will jump out at
listeners. On opening track "The Queen Is Dead," he shifts seamlessly
from scathing howls to soothing, dulcet tones to earsplitting falsettos
in the span of four minutes. Add Weinthal (an ex-Mars Volta drummer Jon Theodore devotee) vigorously bashing the snares and Hanser's limber bass work and it's colossal."
Good stuff. For a fresh taste of what sort of stage carnage awaits you this evening, listen to

Pretty sure singer Julian Cires is repeating "it's a miracle" at about the two-minute mark. Agreed.
