In the lead up to the release of the new album, 2011 has already jumped off to an exciting start for the band. Fans have gravitated to Locksley's infectious sound, which mixes 50's rock 'n' roll with modern garage, coming off as what could be described as a more refined version of The Exploding Hearts or The Dirtbombs covering Buddy Holly & The Crickets. "The Whip" recently caught attention at top 40 radio, and has received ads and spins in many markets and stations including the national format Sirius XM Hits 1. The song was also featured in promotions for the animated Box Office Smash "Rango" starring Johnny Depp. These recent successes as well as high profile appearances at SXSW 2011 with 4Square, CNN And MTV have significantly raised the bands profile among music fans nationally.
The band is proud to unveil The Rapture remix of their hit single "The Whip" as a free download on www.locksley.com. The remix comes paired with the song "On Fire" which is featured in the end credits of Scream 4, which hit theatres this April. In addition to the release of the remix, the Madison, WI born and raised and currently NYC based four piece are eagerly anticipating the upcoming release of their new self-titled album, due out July 12th on Feature Records.
Fans can download both songs via the revamped www.locksley.com
