LemuriaLemuria is in the studio recording with J. Robbins two new songs for a special 7 inch for Record Store Day.

 Lemuria drummer Alex Kerns commented:

“We are all fans and supporters of our own local record stores, and fully support the mission of ‘Record Store Day’. This year, everything seemed to work out timing-wise for us to contribute our own release, so we jumped eagerly at the opportunity! We entered the studio in Baltimore with J Robbins yesterday to record two songs for a very limited, very special RSD only release. The songs will be the first recorded to feature our new bass player, and the record itself will feature artwork from our friend Sarah Abbot. You can help by requesting your local record store to carry this release, and by buying our 7″ and other limited records on April 21st!”

Record Store Day takes place on April 21st, 2012.

The band released Pebble last year on Bridge Nine Records.
