Recently I talked with Ben Lionetti of Lakeshore about their new album, “41”, and some other topics regarding the band’s future. Lakeshore is a newer band from CT partially formed with ex members of Emmure, Ben and Joe Lionetti. Check out the interview below:
CC: You have a new EP dropping on August 4th. What can fans expect from this?
Ben Lionetti: Expect some fresh new rock and roll you can enjoy with your friends and have fun singing along!
CC: After you and Joe departed Emmure, what was the inspiration to join Lakeshore?
BL: We just wanted to do something that was completely from the heart and something that had real meaning behind it with musical influences we grew up listening to.
CC: Who are your musical influences?
BL: Deftones, Aerosmith, KoRn, Steely Dan anything that rocks and gives you “that” feeling.
CC: Where is one place that you hope to tour one day?

CC: What bands or artists have you recently been listening to?

CC: What was the strangest or most memorable conversation that you’ve had with a fan?
BL: I wont choose just one cause each one whether strange or deep and meaningful means something… they’re all special to us.
CC:What are your hopes for Lakeshore in the future?
BL: We want it all…
CC: If you could switch lives with one of your band members, who would you choose and why?
BL: Prob Chris our bass player cause he’s so level headed… sometimes I feel like a complete maniac lol

BL: We go on tour with Alesana & Eyes Set To Kill starting August 4th which is the day we release our debut EP “41” Also will have a music video coming out for the last track on the album called “Pure//Imagination that day. That’s about it for now!
