LST IN HLYWD's Story
LST IN HLYWD is a modern rock/pop punk band born out of the Covid Pandemic. This Toronto-area supercharged indie group of 18-20-somethings are laying down tracks that could easily slide into soundtracks for the summer of 2022 — and that’s precisely what they set out to do.
While most teens were sequestered to their bedrooms, their parents’ living rooms — the mundane and mediocrity of less to do, and even little to see due to the global pandemic of 2020 — Damian Rose decided to get creative, and LST IN HLYWD was born. By the fall of 2021, the little-band-that-could released their first single entitled “Bittersweet”, and have recently grown to over 40K followers on social media following the releases of “Wish You Were Her(e)” and “Summer Valentine”. The group has nowhere to go but up into a stratosphere built on the shoulders of their idols: Fall Out Boy, All Time Low, Chase Atlantic, Palaye Royale, Van Halen, among others.
What this group of resilient and resourceful youths were able to achieve during a two year full-stop on social interaction was utilize their Gen Z know-how and find ways to communicate and practice — mainly on Zoom calls. This stroke of genius allowed the newly-found band a chance to write, record, collaborate, and even play even before they’d ever stepped into the same room together. They have already been in widely acclaimed music blogs including Record World (2nd oldest oldest music industry publication behind Billboard), Tinnitist (the most widely read music blog in Canada), Cashbox Canada, BK On The Scene, and many more. They are currently working on their first EP release which is being produced by Maxamillion Haunt and Nick Lewert from The Haunt (A well known Florida based Rock band).
