LOSS BECOMES — Brian Tsao, Guitar; Will Gomez, Bass; Anthony Copozzi, Vocals; Anthony Lopardo, guitars; Sean Ageman, drums — have dropped the video for the new single “L.O.F.” The song was originally titled “Capazism.”

Watch it here.

The video also premiered yesterday at Revolver.

“‘L.O.F.’ Is an abbreviation for ‘lube oil filter,’ which means ‘oil change,'” says Copozzi. “[It’s] a term my father has been using to communicate on paper what kind of job needs to be done on a customer’s car. He’s been writing this down on a yellow notepad as far back as I can remember over at Nor-Bel Service Center. The song itself is pretty much about a personal ‘mental/social oil change.’ Oddly enough, when I saw him write it down again, it felt like a good fit to title the song “L.O.F.”

The band will also hit the road this summer with Lybica and Godseyes. All dates are below.

6/29 — Albany, NY — Empire Underground
6/30 — Amityville, NY — Amityville Music Hall
7/1 — Hamden, CT — Space Ballroom
7/2 — Clifton, NJ — Dingbatz
7/3 — Hampton Beach, NH — Wally’s

Perhaps you saw him defeating Bobby Flay on his eponymous show Beat Bobby Flay. Or maybe you caught a peek of him leading the kitchen at Beauty & Essex NYC or more recently hosting his very own Williamsburg, Brooklyn sandwich shop, Mission Sandwich Social. But Chef Brian Tsao is not your typical chef.  He wants to fill your ears as much as he wants to fill your belly. So with a heavy appetite for heavy music, Tsao picked up his guitar and was ready for a new adventure with some incredible musicians, including Will Gomez, a hospital radiologic technologist who earned his stripes as the former bassist of NYC bands Johnny Cage Is a Fake and Tiger Flowers. In search of a powerful voice, all roads led to Anthony Copozzi, who earned his vocal chops as lead singer of Long Island metal act Thracian.

LOSS BECOMES are a modern take on classic metalcore with hardcore tendencies. The music is unforgivingly aggressive and executed with intensity and vigor. Anthony’’s ferocious enthusiasm can be heard on every lyric, giving the band what can only be described as a full aural assault.

LOSS BECOMES recorded its first full-length at Long Island’s Westfall Recording Co. with producer Anthony Lopardo at the helm (Moon Tooth, Johnny Booth, Give Up The Goods). He has since joined the band as second guitarist.  The self-titled debut was released in late 2021, garnering widespread praise and attention among its peers and fans with hard hitting anthems such as “Moments’, ‘Healing’ and ‘Demons’, and resulting in LOSS BECOMES sharing stages with the likes of Alien Weaponry, Moon Tooth, Nekrogoblikon, Resistor and Dr. Acula to name a few.

Another recent addition is drummer Sean Agemen, who mastered his chops in previous acts Give Up The Goods and Sargasm.  Sean’s production company Washed Up Media handles video production and photoshoots for the band among other clients, and also helps produce and promote local shows, all adding to the impressive DIY ethic that LOSS BECOMES has become known for.  The formidable 5-piece are ready to take the next step, with plenty of new music planned for the coming months….be on the lookout!

Chris Ianuzzi: Distant Suns/Wide Side two-sided single

Story: Ralph Greco, Jr. Spacey blips flow into a synth-led danceable beat, with vocals making more music than they do an actual statement on the first tune of NYC-composer Chris Ianuzzi’s new double single. This tune, “Distant Suns,” keeps up with its blurring, plastic-pulling video-game sounds, and swirling vocals throughout its mid-tempo four-minute + mélange. […]
