Today, Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties have released anther new song, “Alone at St Luke’s” which finds vocalist Dan Campbell bringing character Aaron West’s flaws into full focus.

The song is lifted from Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties’ third saga, a new album titled In Lieu of Flowers, which will be released on April 12th via Hopeless Records. It’s both a band and a story — as well as everything that happens live on stage is narrative canon.

I think sometimes constriction can be a catalyst for something special,” Campbell explains. “When everyone else in the band got Covid during our UK tour in 2022, it became an indelible part of the story. Our best laid plans were immediately dashed again on the rocks of the pandemic, but this new narrative constriction forced a shift in my approach to the story that sent the record spinning in a new and better direction.

The music mirrors the stark change in the story, seeing Aaron leave his band behind in a sudden and jarring way to finish the tour solo. It takes what was initially a celebratory chorus, with huge drums and horn lines, and shifts the mood entirely without changing the melody or lyrics.

Listen below.

Aaron West and The Roaring Twenties will take the new album on tour across the US and UK this spring, and all tickets are on sale now with multiple shows already sold out. Livestream tickets for their sold out album release show on April 11 in Asbury Park, NJ are also available to bundle with the album pre-order here.
