Behind A MaskÂ will open the eyes and ears of the American rock music scene by showcasing the pure blistering talent ofÂ LOUNAÂ and the soaring vocals of the bandâ€™s lead singer Lousine â€œLouâ€ Gevorkian (in a world that has become immersed in autotune and over-production,Â Behind A MaskÂ boasts true musical talent with only 10-15 seconds of vocal correction on the entire 45-minute record).Â Behind A MaskÂ features 10 of the bandâ€™s best songs from their first two albums and have been painstakingly adapted into English by American producer and lyricist Travis Leake (the SLoT). The album was mixed by renowned producer/engineer Dan Korneff (Breaking Benjamin, The Pretty Reckless, Papa Roach, My Chemical Romance, Paramore) and mastering duties were handled by the legendary Ted Jensen of Sterling Sound, New York.
No other rock group from Russia has exploded onto the music scene quite as rapidly asÂ LOUNA. The band is the winner of the 2009 â€œBest New Artist of the Yearâ€ Russian Alternative Music Prize (RAMP), 2011 â€œRock Song of the Yearâ€ Nashe Award and the 2012 â€œFemale Vocalist of the Yearâ€ Nashe Award.Â LOUNAâ€™s reputation extends beyond their musicality to include the focus of their personal passions as found in their lyrics and actions.Â They are the most commercially successful rock band of the modern protest movement (of which Pussy Riot has become the most internationally renowned). They donated their song â€œThe Time of Xâ€ to the White Album project raising funds for Pussy Riotâ€™s support and defense.Â MTV USA came to Moscow in October of 2012 and featuredLOUNAÂ in an upcoming documentary about protest music around the world called â€œRebel Musicâ€, which should air in the fall of 2013 on MTVU nationwide.
They released their first album, â€œLetâ€™s Get Louderâ€ in December of 2010, selling out every venue during their first national tour of Russia supporting the album. Two singles, â€œFight Clubâ€ and â€œLetâ€™s Get Louderâ€ reached #1 on the Russian radio charts, with â€œFight Clubâ€ remaining in the top 10 for a record-breaking 16 weeks and also being named the 2011 Rock Song of the Year at the annualÂ Nashe Awards. Along with this,Â LOUNAÂ was nominated for Breakthrough Artist and Solo Performance of the year. Their second album, â€œThe Time of X,â€ released in February of 2012 has already produced a #1 single, â€œMama,â€ and their most recent single â€œPeople Looking Upâ€ entered the Russian charts in the top 10.
