A.L.X explains, "When we set out to record Delusions, our goal was to create a sound that demonstrated a natural evolution from the postpunk/classic rock influences of our debut album. While attempting to maintain some of the darker elements that are the essence of Love Crushed Velvet, a lot of focus went into crafting a sound that was 'rock', but not necessarily in the classic sense. With the lyrical content of the new songs, we really tried to dig deep and delve into uncomfortable territory."Love Crushed Velvet releases Delusions, today, September 24th!  You can purchase the album on iTunes, Here:
