The new album will be Lynam’s final album. “we’re not breaking up” states Jacob. “We’ve been together for a long time and we want to concentrate on new projects. We are all still best friends and will always play together moving forward, but we’re ready to explore different oppor- tunities outside of Lynam. We toured behind Tragic City Symphony for 2 years and are looking for- ward to touring behind the new record.”

Best of luck to the Lynam boys and their future endeavors!  Can’t wait to hear Thank You Good Night!  Follow the band on Facebook to keep up with what they’re doing.

lynammainAlabama based Lynam have one mission – to put the ROCK back in rock and roll.  With their upcoming release Tragic City Symphony they give it their best shot – drums fit for an arena, catchy choruses, and a ballad or two to raise your lighter…er…cell phone to!  Big arena style rock is not a thing of the past, it’s just missing from the present but Lynam is intent on making it a fixture of the future.  With guest appearances by Cinderella’s Tom Keifer and Hinder and produced by the likes of Jason Elgin (Collective Soul, Maylene, Sons of Disaster), Tragic City Symphony is primed and ready for a rock n roll revolution.

The trio (Jacob Lynam on vocals and guitar, David Lynam on drums and vocals and Mark Lynam on bass and vocals) are blood brothers with DNA derived from pure adrenalized rock.  Drawing their influences from bands like Motley Crue, Nickelback and Green Day, Lynam looks to fill the heavy shoes of bands that know how to command a stage and excite an army of fans.  Currently on a non-stop tour of bringing their show to every stage that will have them the band is also taking part in the upcoming sold out Motley Cruise, that’s right – rock on water baby!

Recently Jacob and David took some time to talk to TWRY staffer Stacie about the state of the music industry, their personal manifesto to bring rock n roll back to it’s glory days and all things Lynam.
