The album will be out on October 30th, it’s called ‘Alive In The Hot Zone!‘ and it’s a sort of lockdown record – with the added twist that Austin Lucas has hunkered down in Mainz, away from his family and with the time to record a new album. From which today’s song is taken.
‘The Times‘ is personally reflective and also looks back on an earlier socially unevolved time – a time when children could be ignored, and woman weren’t expected to exhibit equality. And although it is framed within the personal it’s not nostalgia, there’s a warning in here as well – what has changed can change back.
