With a cool synth-driven sound and songs that chronicle life and love in the digital age, LANY are one of music’s hottest young acts.
In a recent Ticketmaster Insider interview, singer Paul Jason Klein said “2017 is going to be a massive year for us. I’ve been selfishly calling it ‘The Year of LANY’.”
To celebrate their tour launch, LANY took over Ticketmaster’s Snapchat account for their first show at the intimate 500-capacity Oxford Art Factory in Sydney, Australia.
The band shared footage of them soundchecking and hanging out before the gig, and then rocking the house with a mix of old songs and new tracks off the album.

You can even hear a brief snippet of the album track “It Was Love” in our exclusive video clip from the Snapchat takeover, which Klein announced on Twitter will be a future single.
LANY played a couple of shows “Down Under” before heading to the Philippines, where they perform Saturday night. Then it’s off to Europe for the rest of the month, where they’ve already built a strong fan base.
The band returns home to the U.S. in early April for a string of shows supporting John Mayer and then headlining their own dates through May, rounding things out with appearances at the Hangout Music Festival in Alabama and Louisville’s Forecastle Festival.
In an interview with Billboard magazine, Klein described the album as “this enormous, beautiful story of everything coming together.”
