Local band “Whiskey Labido” music featured on new movie

 

July 9, 2013



Lake Stevens’ own band Whiskey Labido just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

Just last year they performed as the opening act for “Powerman 5000” at El Carazon in Seattle and now one of their songs is being used in the soundtrack for the upcoming movie, “True Trainwreck” which will premier in Corvallis, Ore. on July 14 at the Elks Lodge and will most likely be shown as a Lifetime Original Movie later in the year.

“Besides playing the biggest show of our lives last September, as we opened up for “Powerman 5000” at El Corazon in Seattle, now it just seems our music is really starting to snowball and blasting worldwide straight into people’s living rooms,” Whiskey Labido’s Lead Guitarist Todd Burghduff said.

Excited about the prospect of millions of people hearing their song, “Livid, Even Angels” in the film, the band just keeps moving ahead in the music business.

“It’s definitely a great way for all of us in “Whiskey Labido” to become a household name, literally overnight. We’ve all been congratulating each other for the past few hours now and are still in disbelief that they wanted to use our music for ‘True Trainwreck’,” Burghduff said.

The movie is about a once, successful architect named James Davenport whose life changes dramatically almost overnight, because of his weakness for booze.

The song, “Livid, Even Angels” was written by Johnny Moore and performed by the members of “Whiskey Labido: which includes Chris Allis, Singer and Harmonica; Todd Burghduff, Lead and Rhythm guitar and Backup vocals; Jake Chapman, Lead and Rhythm guitar and Backup vocals; Johnny Moore, Bass and Backup vocals and Corey Allen, Drums.
