Land of the Living

Heavy Alternative
Raleigh, North Carolina, USA

Joe and Cat Albanese formed this band after Fell Desire. The original name for the band was Ultra Monark, but that was soon changed to Land of the Living. One song was dropped from the full length album after the name change.

The BandCamp description says: “Land of the Living is musical mind control. In fact, if you're reading this, it's too late. “Rosebud” buy the songs “Freedom Train” do it now. Joe Albanese, Easy and Dave Napier making music because they can.”

After this, Joe Albanese formed McGillicuddy Swanson.
