A BlankTV Premiere Presentation:
Left Alone - "Leather Bound Book "
Left Alone returns in their true form, serving up their strongest and most aggressive record to date. With the catchy sing along punk rock, up beat ska, and a little country, Harbor Area is an 11 song collection that is packed full of what Left Alone is known for. The band recorded this album with long time friend and producer TJ Rivera (Rufio/Nitro Records/Poor Habit/ Fat Records) in August 2012. They tracked over 20 songs and released the Hate the Day EP in 2013 for a Japan tour from those sessions. After Cortez took a break in 2013 from recording to tour and play guitar with The Transplants and Tim Timebomb and Friends, the band returned to the studio in early 2014 to put together the songs that would eventually become Harbor Area. The inspiration behind this record comes from the personal experiences that lead singer Elvis Cortez (one of the hardest working punk rockers today) has accumulated growing up in the South Bay of Los Angeles, an area that spews over with gang violence, crime and overall sense of no future. The album kicks off with the explosive song ‘Harbor Area’ which speaks of the violence and death that plagues the streets that Cortez calls home, and ends with the song “Malcontent’ which explores the inner struggles of growing up on the streets of Wilmington. Simply put, this album lyrically establishes a new level of personal insight that is rare to find in todays lackluster music. Speaking within the confinements of the 110 Fwy, The 405, the 710 and the Port of Wilmington. Harbor Area is a love letter by Cortez to his hometown and the place where it all began.
