Lords Of Ruin Release New Single About Former Ex-Idols Frontman Gary Finneran & Added To Rock The Arts Festival With Mest & Daisy De La Hoya

Orange County, CA based Lords of Ruin have posted their new single "Ghost Of Finneran" online at https://soundcloud.com/lordsofruin/ghost-of-finnerean/s-RlXjX. The song was written about former Ex-Idols frontman Gary Finneran who tragically took his own life May 10th, 2009 and was inspired when Lords of Ruin frontman saw his ghost in a bar a few years later.

Lords of Ruin have also been added to the upcoming Rock The Arts Festival in Orange County with Mest, the Implants, and Daisy De La Hoya and the Beautiful Disaster at www.rocktheartsfest.com.

"My friend Gary was such a talent and musical genius. The greatest songwriter I have ever known, but as many brilliant artists, Gary did have his demons. Though he was best-known as the singer for the Ex-Idols, a notorious Los Angeles/Orange County punk band active in the early 1990s, he also went on to form She Died & Tuscaurora. The guy constantly wrote new and incredible music. I was not only his friend, but one of his biggest fans,” said Lauren Boquette. “I was at a bar in Huntington Beach CA and saw him sitting on a bar stool with his guitar under the bar’s marquee. Saw him there clear as day! I immediately grabbed my phone and started singing into its recorder. That was the birth of this track. A few months later we were working at producer/ keyboardist Ronnie King's (Mariah Carey, Tupac, Snoop Dogg, Rancid, Pennywise, Pepper) house out in the desert and the music started to take shape, coincidentally on the 3rd anniversary of Gary's death. The whole song wrote itself, i truly believe Gary gave it to us. Even the style of the song is different for us, but totally in a style that Gary would have written. Shortly after we recorded and finished the song at a friend’s studio in Orange County. My tribute to a fallen brother.”

Orange County, CA has been responsible for spawning monumental acts like Korn, Lit, The Offspring, Social Distortion, Avenged Sevenfold, and now Lords of Ruin. The band evolved from Boquette's previous project SiX, who in 2008 released the critically acclaimed album, “Between The Warning and the War”, which featured guest appearances by Mike Clark from Suicidal Tendencies and bassist Tony Campos from Soulfly & Ministry.

Lords of Ruin released their new EP "Life Is A War" via Sullen Clothing's new independent label Sullen Musik, and is available online at http://bit.ly/13tpVDx. Lords of Ruin features vocalist Lauren Boquette, formerly of the alt-metal act Drown.
