Lÿnx drop video for new single “Long Live Rock N’ Roll”
Western Canadian rockers Lÿnx consisting of lead vocalist Ja6ur, guitarist Blade, bassist Fangs and drummer Flash have unveiled a video for the title track of their latest EP Long Live Rock N’ Roll, which was released back on September 15, 2021.
Asher Media Relations‘ press release indicates (with slight edits):
“Taking no prisoners and making no excuses is the name of the game of Calgary’s Lÿnx. They play pure rock n roll reminiscent of the 80’s boosted with modern-day producing and mastering. Last year they released their album “Long Live Rock N Roll” and now they have a music video out for the title track single. They explain the track:
“We wrote “Long Live Rock N’ Roll” as a homage to all the legends that came before us. Fangs put most of the lyrics to it and Blade composed the song. From start to finish, it’s the life experiences that Fangs acquired on top of his way of saying thank you and shouting out that Lÿnx will carry on the Rock N’ Roll dream that so many accomplished before us. Man, we hope it kills! All of us have put a lot of thought into this album, as every artist does”
Lÿnx formed as a group that came together with a shared dream of wanting more out of life. With a burning desire to create, this band is the dream that they wish to share with the world as they make their mark in music history. This album gives fans the whole experience, whether you’re touring downtown with your partner, and you want to crank up the tunes, they got that. If you want to sit back and chill, listen to some good time rock, they got that too. Having a party? Hell Yeah! They should be the first album played because that’s what Lÿnx is. They bring the energy, the noise and want everyone to enjoy it with us!
Lÿnx intends to take their fans back to a time long gone that was full of hair, crazy outfits, and rockstars while showing a younger generation that “this ain’t your parents’ music”. They are recommended listening for fans of Mötley Crüe, Guns N Roses, and Skid Row.

Lÿnx is the 80s inspired Hard Rock/ Metal four-piece currently based in Calgary, Alberta Canada. During the 2020 pandemic, the band was formed by former vocalist Lazer Wild and lead guitarist Blade. Soon after, bassist Fangs and drummer Flash joined and Lÿnx was formed.
The band is currently fronted by Ja6ur on vocals, Blade on guitar, Fangs on bass, and Flash on drums / percussion. Connected by a shared love of 80s glam metal and hard rock, the band immediately set about writing original songs that embody the style and swagger of the past, while embracing the polished production and down-to-earth grit of their more modern rock influences. Lÿnx released their debut self-titled EP in February 2021 followed up by their second EP titled “Long Live Rock N Roll” in September 2021 with Bullzhorn Records. Since their releases, the band has gained popularity through various reviews on different media platforms in Europe, Australia, and North America. Having gained a reputation for their anthemic choruses, sizzling guitar solos, and powerhouse vocals, Lÿnx has garnered a dedicated and eclectic international fan base.
The band has hit the stages with high energy and connected with their audiences through the love of Rock N Roll. The band aims to build on the momentum created by their released music and push their sound into even more extreme levels of Rock N Roll.”
