Laceblack to perform live in London
Italian singer and songwriter Luca Celletti alias "Laceblack" will perform live at the Monarch, Camden Town in London on July 1.

Behind the name “Laceblack” is the Italian musician, singer and songwriter Luca Celletti. Born in Rome, Luca began playing drums as a young kid. Influenced by the classical rock music of Rolling Stones, Doors, David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac, and Aerosmith, he also began writing and singing his own songs.

Also in particular, thanks to the very similar timbre of Steven Tyler, Celletti has also created a tribute band called Eurosmith, the 1st European Aerosmith cover band. But beyond the great live performances of popular songs from Aerosmtih, Luca Celletti is better known for his Laceblack project that involves many musicians: Umberto Sartini (bass), Massimo Marracini (drums), Lorenzo Milone and Giacomo Anselmi (guitars), all united in creating an original sound from the roots of rock – trespassing through the psychedelic shades – can be seen as an evolution of various genres.

In fact, the name “Laceblack” is a very evocative word that reminds of the dark atmosphere of the 80’s when psychedelia was mixed with the deepest echoes of new wave genres. But there are other suggestions that came from Laceblack, other influences, that comes from Soul and jazz, and also from metal: a lot of suggestions that start from a new way to conceive rock.

We can just listen to a song chosen as the first single of this project, called Anytime, to discover a new melodic sound with very poetical effects. This song has been written by Luca Celletti and Raoul Battilani, and talks about how difficult yet at same time so important it is to realise the very meaning of our lives. Watching deep inside our soul we can see that every moment should be the right moment to act, the moment to understand our thoughts and to make special our life.  

With an incredible guitar solo, discordant like the insidious darkness of our soul, Anytime arrives to show another way to relate with our conscience. And this stream of consciousness, with the romantic view that music can involve, is one of the main themes of the album “Laceblack”, that includes Anytime. So the lyrics of the song help us to trust in ourselves and in the beauty of the world (“I believe in such a beauty I saw around”), with simple but very deep words, Anytime shows us the silver lining of all the things around us, the precious aspects of our life that many times we aren’t able to consider.

(“Anytime we shine as stars in the rain”). Every time, but also every place, is the place for us: “Walking in everyplace…together we stay”. And every time a lover of rock music, expressed with and new and original style, wants to open his musical horizons, it doesn’t take much. You can listen to all the 12 songs of Laceblack’s debutn album, but mostly you must keep the date for the next Laceblack live performances: June 25 at kill Joy in Rome and July 1 at the Monarch, Camden Town in London.
