Veteran rock band L.A. Guns released its latest single this week.
The band debuted its new single ‘Well Oiled Machine‘ Monday. The single is the second single from the band’s forthcoming album Renegades, which is slated for release later this year through Golden Robot Records. The album’s release date will be announced soon.
The musical arrangement at the center of ‘Well-Oiled Machine’ is a full-on 80s, guitar-rock composition that will appeal to fans of the band’s fellow 80s rock stalwarts Ratt, Motley Crue and Poison.
While the song’s art features a motorcycle with the band’s logo, and the lyrics could easily be confused with descriptions of a motorcycle, the reality is that the song’s lyrical theme appears to center on a woman. This is clear as front man Phil Lewis sings in the song’s lead verse, “I love my baby/She’s a well oiled machine/She takes me places that I’ve never seen/Movin’ fast/She’s a satellite/Rollin’ thunder through the night.” The note of the rolling thunder, again, could lead to confusion, as could the mention in the song’s chorus of the subject having a “jet black shine/Curves like a dream/Ain’t nothing like you ever seen.” In reality, that is more likely a description of said woman, complete with raven-colored hair and hourglass figure. Lewis continues in the song’s second verse, “Lights out under barren skies/We fade away into the rest of the night/She cuts me deep like a vampire/Light ’em up/Set the world on fire.” That mention of the vampire simile shows even more clearly that this is not about a motorcycle or even a car, but a woman. Examining all of this, the woman is apparently quite the intense figure. This is a theme that countless bands have used, and even despite that, will still appeal to the band’s fans as it takes a classic approach to the topic.
‘Well Oiled Machine’ is available to stream and download here.
The debut of the band’s new song comes less than two months after it debuted the album’s lead single Crawl. According to a June 10 posting to L.A. Guns’ official Facebook page, the single had received more than 100,000 streams at that time. The song is available to stream and download through Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, and Google Play.
The band debuted a making of video for ‘Crawl’ through Golden Robot Records’ official YouTube channel the day after ‘Crawl’ made its premiere. The making of video is streaming here. The song’s unofficial video, it features the band performing the single over a series of clips of the band in the studio working on the song.
