LostAlone: The Final Interview
Frontman Steven Battelle looks ahead to the Derby trio’s farewell shows and the future
In less than one week’s time, LostAlone will be no more. During their nine-year tenure, the band have released three albums: 2007’s Say No To The World, the 2012 follow-up I’m A UFO In This City (co-produced by Gerard Way) and most recently, Shapes Of Screams. In October, the trio – Steven Battelle (vocals, guitar), Mark Gibson (drums, vocals) and Alan Williamson (bass, vocals, hair) – announced that they were to disband, alluding to circumstances that seemed to be out of their control. “This is not something that we wanted to happen, and not a decision we took lightly,” read the statement, “but unfortunately for us, events have transpired that make it impossible for us to continue the band we love.”
It's not all doom and gloom, though. As Battelle looks ahead to their final shows which take place this week in London and Derby, the frontman explains that the band’s untimely end has not slowed his prolific writing streak as he’s gearing up to release a solo album in 2015...
