Buffalo based Hard Rock
"Lost Elysium is Ashley Elle (vox/synth), Brian Muller (guitar) and Ricky Stage (drums). We make music to bring hope to those captured in darkness and to pull the broken back from the edge.HOW IT ALL BEGANBuffalo based hard rock band Lost Elysium sets the world ablaze, exploding with whole-hearted lyrics, lush vocals, bright guitar, piano riffs and driving, dark rhythms. Ashley Elle (lead vocals, keys) infuses the group with a vivid range of melodic colors and emotions, while members Brian Muller (guitars) and Ricky Stage (drums) tip its massive sound over a razor-sharp edge. The band’s live shows are a raw and intimate thrill-ride, inviting audiences to seek solace in each other as they share time along life’s challenging journey. Intricate recordings with layers of hard-hitting rock instrumentation plus pop and blues accents offer a soul-baring glimpse into both the elegant and the ferocious emotion conveyed by Elle’s acrobatic voice, which soars easily between the earth’s depths and its stratosphere. Her prowess as a songwriter shines through fiery lyrics about death, heartache, loss, pain and ultimate survival that give Lost Elysium its wings.
The band will start a new chapter with the release of “Think Like the Enemy” on September 30, standing behind songs that are even more steeped in Elle’s unabashed honesty than ever before. The new music goes to dark, deep and mysterious places and further illustrates the band’s very personal message. The group’s new single, “Think Like the Enemy” mixes the kinetic energy of a rock anthem with elements of industrial and melodic pop. The track produced by Mike Rogers ( Deee-Lite) features Elle’s ethereal voice above layers of guitar, a haunting keyboard melody and a deep, subtle groove. “Think Like the Enemy” was recorded at the historic Dreamland Recording Studio in Woodstock, NY and is distributed by the Orchard (Sony and Generic Records).
The gravity of Lost Elysium has made it an in-demand band for rock clubs all across the U.S. sharing stages with like-minded artists such as Lacuna Coil, John 5 (Rob Zombie) and Theory of a Deadman. Justin Tyme of WKSE/KISS 98.5 praised, “Lost Elysium has such incredible stage presence. Their passion is incomparable. Their sound unforgettable, and their talent is superior.”
