Today, LNZNDRF – the American trio of Ben Lanz, Bryan Devendorf and Scott Devendorf – release their eponymously-titled debut album and to celebrate the band have launched their first official video for ‘Future You’.
The video documents journeys made by its director Keith Ladzinski across all seven continents, visiting some of the most remote nooks and crannies of the world. The epic landscapes and dramatic wildlife scenes provide a striking visual platform for the 7-minute album opener. The video is streaming on YouTube below, whilst German viewers can watch here.
Formed five years ago in Auckland, New Zealand, LNZNDRF (pronounced ‘Lanzendorf’) recorded the eight- track long-player over two and half days in a church in Cincinnati, Ohio. The songs, edited down from 30+ minute jams, evoke the essence of their expansive, largely improvised live shows.
Watch LNZNDRF live in session performing album tracks ‘Beneath The Black Sea’, ‘Kind Things’ and ‘Mt. Storm’ here.
Ben, Bryan and Scott head on their first ever European tour later this month, starting with a sold-out headline show at London’s Oslo on tonight to celebrate LNZNDRF’s release. Find all dates below.
