The Third Men Podcast is proud to present an all-new extended interview with Chris Lyons of New Orleans Garage-Psych crew Silver Synthetic! Their excellent new self-titled debut LP drops on April 9th from Third Man Records, and we had the pleasure of sitting down with the group’s lead singer and principle songwriter to talk about how Silver Synthetic formed, how the album came about, and what series of circumstances caught the eye of TMR co-founder and co-owner Ben Swank. Listeners to the show will remember your humble co-hosts singing the praises of last year’s Out of the Darkness EP release, which introduced us to four tracks from the band – two of which, Unchain Your Heart and Out of the Darkness, also appear on their eponymous debut record. Chris runs down all eight album cuts with us on the show, gives us some insight into his own musical roots, and delves deep into the struggles of launching a new group amidst the ever-present realities of a global pandemic. It’s blazing rock’n’roll, thought-provoking discussion, and a rumination on the Golden Nugget Flea Market this week on the Third Men Podcast! We’d like to thank Mr. Lyons for joining us, and we hope you all go and pick up Silver Synthetic’s new record available wherever fine music is sold.
