• Former lead singers of Larry and His Flask • Single "Shelter" featuring vocal appearance by Frank Turner released • Signed to Flail Records • 10,000+ monthly Spotify Listeners - 01/15/2023
Lead singers of Larry and his Flask, Ian Cook and Andrew Carew, continue the fun and songwriting alliance together in their new project Beyond The Lamplight. A new iteration of the time-tested sound that fans have grown to love. Soaring harmonies meld with deft lyricism and lightning-fast banjo-picking all against a double-time backbeat to form a quintessential electric barn burner.
Having worked with Xtra Mile Records & Silver Sprocket Records with Larry And His Flask, Beyond the Lamplight quickly found a home with Flail Records.
"Shelter", is a song about loving another who has created a guarded existence from the outside world. A story about coaxing someone out of their shell that they hide inside of. Sharing your own strength with that person in hopes to bring them out of their shelter; their shield against the anxieties and stresses of life. Trying to show them the beauty of not only the world but also the beauty in themselves. Guest featuring vocals of Frank Turner on the bridge and backing choruses.
-About Working with Frank Turner:
“Frank’s a longtime friend. We got really close with him and the Sleeping Souls over the course of several tours throughout the years with Larry and his Flask. When I sat down and wrote Shelter it just kind of all came flowing out in one big stream. When I finished and listened back to it, I could just hear him singing it so clearly in my head. The melody just lent itself to his voice and style. So I got a hold of him and asked if he’d be into being a part of it and he was super stoked to lend his voice to the song. He banged it out in a day or so at his studio and that’s what’s on the record. It really elevated the song from a listener perspective. Having the back and forth from me to him. Playing off of each other. Total magic.” - Ian Cook, Lead Singer of Beyond the Lamplight
BBC Radio: "Who's the best support band you've ever seen?"
Frank Turner: “Probably Larry & His Flask opening for me on tour a few years back. Holy Christ they are good.” -BBC RADIO Jun 21, 2018. Lead singer of Larry and His Flask is the same lead singer of Beyond the Lamplight (Ian Cook).
NEW ALBUM - "Don't Forget to Leave it All Behind"
-Debut Album out Winter of 2023. About the Album:
Don’t Forget To Leave It All Behind is a record about liberation. Finding one’s way out from under the weight of their own anxiety and fears. A triumphant call to arms that says, “Forget about your shortcomings. Forget about your failures. Forget about all the things that are holding you back from being what you’re truly meant to be.” Whether it’s the chiming chorus of “The Current” asking, “…will you swim or will you sink below?”, the sardonic swing of “Hiding In Plain Sight” stating, “…we all know how hard it is to do nothing...” or the catchy cadence of the title track, “…take a stand do what you’re here for, you are free to live your life..” the album is peppered with lessons learned and warnings against straying from the true path to positive mental health and happiness.
