The New Lows
The New Lows, an American punk rock band from Orlando, Florida, formed in the summer of 2000. After
regional punk rock heroes Shyster called it quits in 1999, singer/songwriter Mike Levin decided to start
over. This time he chose to incorporate his own influences, such as grass roots folk and classic soul,
along with his already fortified punk roots to produce a more melodic, soulful approach. And so The
New Lows was born.
In 2006, Levin moved to Brooklyn, put together a new lineup, and quickly hit the circuit playing as many
shows as possible. In 2008, The New Lows recorded their second full length release, "Atlantic/Pacific,"
with former Shyster bassist Wes Snowden and Jon Spencer Blues Explosion drummer Russell Simins.
Filled with hard-charging riffs, beautiful harmonies, and resonating lyrics, the album was met with great
reviews and proved to be a fortuitous launching point for what was to come.
Following the release, Levin decided to return to Florida. He soon assembled local players, drummer
Greg Lightfoot and guitarist/keyboardist Bobby Pino, to join him and Snowden. After playing
continuously for the last two years, the group went to acclaimed New Orleans recording studio The
Living Room to record their next album. The anxiously anticipated "I Couldn't Sleep" is set to be released
