Lemuria formed in 2004 in Buffalo, NY, in the landing of an apartment stairway above the greatest diner in the world, Amy's Place. 15 years of touring, 4 albums, and dozens of 7"s later, the band is much different than it was when it began; Lemuria changes with the varying and dynamic interests of its constituents, and avoids being pigeon holed at all costs. Recreational Hate is, along this avenue, something different. The songs can be traced to a past, present, and future existence of the band, running in every direction, but always coming home to a definitive observational point of reference. It's the next book in a fantasy series. It's the surprise sixth act in a never ending performance. It hints of familiarity in a place where the guidelines have been abandoned, and anything is possible. Whether you've followed them for years, or are luckily discovering them for the first time, you're in for a treat.
