The hard rocking Portland, OR trio, Lightning Rules, formed in late 2014 and kicks some serious ass – this is heavy rock done right! Individually, members Wess Willis (guitar, vox), Jov Luke (drums), and Adam Smith (bass), know their instruments well but when playing together, hold on to your hat… these guys are both dirty and fucking bad-ass! Ok, ass-kissing aside, we’ve got a free download of their new song “Degrees and Separation” – get it now!

With a sound reminiscent of Queens of the Stone Age, Mutoid Man, Death From Above 1979, and Clutch, Lightning Rules’s brand of rock will be eaten up by a wide variety of fans. Their debut EP is the 5-track EP #1 and was almost entirely recorded live at Sellwood, OR’s Magic Closet Studios. Due out on September 24th, we’re super-pumped for this band to be heard by the masses!
