Everyone’s favorite sarcastic power trio, lespecial, is thrilled to announce the release of their new mashup EP, SANDWICH CAGE. Known for their genre-defying sound and explosive live performances, the Connecticut-based group is ready to serve up a fresh auditory experience that combines their heavy future groove style with an imaginative blend of iconic tunes.

"Sandwich Cage" is a collection of four tracks that mashes up celebrated artists across a variety of music genres. "We’ve concocted 4 uniquely delectable sandwiches, mashing up the likes of Metallica and Darude, Slayer, Korn and Primus, Hudson Mohawk and Phil Collins, and a thrash metal cover of America’s number one mobile provider. Eat up, and enjoy, SANDWICH CAGE.” said Luke Bemand, bassist of lespecial.


Offering a sound that's as eclectic as their influences, lespecial has made a name for themselves by continuously pushing the boundaries of what a three-piece band can achieve. With a history of exploring diverse sounds ranging from bone-shaking 808s and sub-synths to headbanging metal riffage, lespecial's latest project pays homage to their heavier musical influences while maintaining a sense of humor and camaraderie that has been a hallmark of their two-decade-long friendship and musical collaboration.

“This EP is an homage to some of our favorite artists and heavier influences. We wanted to create something in earnest with a tinge of humor, because after almost 20 years we’re the same three friends who got together after school to joke off and learn our favorite riffs," added Bemand.

Best turned up to 11 whilst enjoying your lunch, SANDWICH CAGE  is available everywhere now!
