Supersonic Groove Rockers The Lows release official lyric video for “Wake Up.”

The Lows are an exciting new hard rock band hailing from Detroit, Michigan. The band was founded in 2017 by young songwriter/singer/multi-instrumentalist Angelo Coppola, who had already started making a name for himself in the local Detroit rock scene with his band Shock Wave. Although he is a young age of 22, Coppola is a seasoned veteran having been playing in bands since the age of thirteen!

In an interview with AXS, Coppola mentioned he was a drummer by trade, but started writing songs more and more while picking up the guitar in the process. Coppola took a whole bunch of these songs, he had written into Pearl Sound Studios in Canton, Michigan and recorded them pretty much all on his own. He did all of the bass guitar tracks, the drums, and the vocals.

Coppola eventually brought in his buddy Wolf to take over playing bass. Coppola wanted an actual band name for this project as opposed to calling it after himself so he came up with The Lows and put the band together around the recording process. Wolf brought guitarist Mike Leslie, of Candlebox, on board. Next, Coppola brought in drummer Duane Hewins, whom he met while attending a music school in Detroit called DIME. The last piece to the puzzle was adding guitarist Brandon McNall.

The Lows may be relatively new to the music scene, but these musicians bring lots of street cred with them, having been playing in and around the Detroit scene for many, many years. The band recently released their debut self-titled EP, along with a lyric video for one of the tracks, “Wake Up.” If you like what you hear, head on over to CD Baby to pick up a copy of the EP here.

The band made their live debut at The Machine Shop in Flint, Michigan on December 16, 2017. Our photographer, Thom Seling, was on-hand to capture the moment. Here are his photos from that evening.
