(Fantastic) Wake Up Lucid recorded over master tapes to make thier upcoming EP. So when you listen to their new "Sugar" EP when it's released on February 15th, and in between songs you'll hear the drum tracks from the band's previous release, "Look Alive People."
"They called us up the night before and said we could record one song," says front man Ryan Baca, "We were so hungry to get in there, we ended up recording five songs, recording right over our last master because we couldn't get any more tape!"
Currently, Wake Up Lucid is already back in the studio tracking for an upcoming debut full-length. The future is definitely bright for this rock and roll family, as Ryan Baca states, "Our dads were brothers. We grew up watching them play together, and doing this just keeps up that family tradition."
Wake Up Lucid started as a vision of singer/guitarist Ryan Baca's father, who had passed years earlier. In the dream, they wrote a song together, and the name of the song was "Wake Up Lucid."
Since that fateful night in 2008, Ryan and his two cousins Ian Baca (bass) and Jamie Baca (drums) have quickly burned their names into the rock and roll conscience of Southern California with an old school brew of savage blues, heavy rhythm, and the kind of down home sincerity long lost to corporate Nu-Metal, how-to-play-guitar videos, and ten thousand dollar "vintage" guitar amps.
In the two years since Wake Up Lucid's inception, the band has already gained recognition from Rolling Stone, KEXP, My Old Kentucky Blog and many others. Following up their 2009, all-analog EP "Look Alive People," Wake Up Lucid is back with a new EP entitled "Sugar," once again tracked live at the famed Village Recorder Studios.
