On their 2007 debut Don’t Make Me Wait, unsigned, Wisconsin natives, Locksley found success with a fresh and exciting mix of garage-pop and brit-rock. The band’s forthcoming, follow-up album finds them exploring their American musical roots with bits of Swing, 50’s Doo-Wop, 60’s Soul and early American-Punk coming together to create something uniquely and confidently their own.

Locksley returns with their new album Be In Love on January 26th, 2010. The four-piece band, brothers Jesse and Jordan Laz (rhythm guitar and bass respectively), Kai Kennedy (lead guitar) and Sam Bair (drums) are very excited about the new material.

“We’ve broadened and narrowed our outlook on this album” Jesse remarked. “We added a third vocalist and songwriter in Jordan, which was big and we were listening to and pulling from a larger variety of music than before. At the same time, we cut a lot of fat in our parts and tightened up the arrangements quite a bit so the album ends up feeling more focused than the last one, even though it’s spread out over more voices.”

Locksley will preview many of the new songs from Be In Love on their fall tour supporting Chesapeake, Virginia’s Mae, which will begin on September 24th in Chapel Hill and continue through Salt Lake City on October 21st.
