LEWIS Share “Milkman” From Forthcoming LP

LEWIS, the emerging Los Angeles-based band led by Christopher Lewis (formerly of The Kinison) will release Growing Pains on October 20. Preorder the album here.

LEWIS shares the second single from the album, “Milkman” today.

“I remember when Christopher was over to work on a new song, ‘Milkman,'” Fig recalls. “We made quick work of the arrangement, and while fleshing out the chord progression, I stumbled on a melodic hook for the chorus which lifted the chorus in such a cool way. It reminded me of Bowie’s ‘Heroes,’ but this chorus was all LEWIS. After letting the song ruminate a bit, we tackled the lyrics together, making a fun play on being creative with boredom during the pandemic.” 

Listen to the album’s first single, “Meet You Where You Are,” here.

During COVID-19, Christopher Lewis joined forces with Paul Fig (Bluebird, Amen). Fig is best known for his work as a recording engineer for Alice and Chains, Deftones, Slipknot, Ghost, and, most recently, his production of Filth is Eternal’s new album. On Growing Pains, Christopher’s poignant lyrics and compelling vocals combine with Fig’s minimalist approach to his own guitar presence.

With Fig assuming the role of the band’s electric guitarist, LEWIS has cultivated a unique and evocative sound. Together with a dynamic rhythm section comprising Sam West (Stavesacre) on drums and Conner West (Conman Bolo) on bass, they have crafted a sonic tapestry that oscillates between thundering rhythms and ethereal guitar landscapes, seamlessly blending dreamy pop and rock elements.
