The L.A. Maybe unleash video for ballad “When I’m Gone”
The L.A. Maybe consisting of lead vocalist Alvi Robinson , guitarists Dallas Dwight and Drizzle Silvera , keyboardist Josh Thompson, bassist Rahsaan Lacey and drummer Ryan Fosnow have unveiled a video for their latest single “When I’m Gone” from their debut full-length album Dirty Damn Tricks.
TAG Publicity‘s press release indicates in part (with slight edits):
“Carolinas based heavy rock band The L.A. Maybe –fronted by lead singer Alvi Robinson, made famous when he was nearly selected to front the legendary band AC/DC in 2016–have released the official lyric video for “When I’m Gone,” off of their debut album, Dirty Damn Tricks.
“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 five 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.” – Dallas Dwight
The L.A. Maybe is a six-piece rock n’ roll band hailing from the southern heat of the Carolinas. If you’re a fan of Guns N’ Roses, AC/DC, or Van Halen… you will feel right at home adding LAM to your record collection.
Lead vocalist Alvi Robinson (who was one of only four singers to audition to replace Brian Johnson in AC/DC in 2016) lays down gritty, passionate vocals while the rest of the band back him up with slithering riffs, huge catchy hooks, and ripping guitar solos.
LAM firmly plants its feet at the very forefront of the New Wave of Classic Rock movement and you’re sure to have at least one of their choruses stuck in your head at any given moment.
Drawing influence from nearly every style of music, The L.A. Maybe put on an electrifying live show and stand for everything you love about rock music, old and new.”
