Lazywall

Lazywall are a Modern Hard Rock band based in Tangier (Morocco) that formed in 2003 when brothers Monz and Nao got into the local Reading (UK) music scene. Since then, the three piece band have played a lot of gigs, a few festivals, recorded an EP with Steve Albini in Chicago, mastered with Sean Magee at Abbey Road, rocked a maximum capacity of 50000 crowd in Casablanca, been through the same sh*t every hard working breaking band usually goes through to get where they are now and values every fan that takes the time to appreciate their sound.

The band's name was derived from a wall along the coast of Tangier (Morocco), overlooking the Mediterranean Sea across to the coast of Spain and mainland Europe. On this wall, ambitious Moroccan citizens sit, smoke, drink and dream of “making it” in Europe. The wall is known by locals as sour al maagazine, the lazy wall.

Back of their 2007 tours in France and the Czech Republic, the band set to record their material in early 2008, for their first album "Apoptosia". Introducing moroccan instruments and lyrics in their new songs to create a perfect symbiosis of sounds. An album that was produced by Anton Pukshansky(2 times grammy awards winner), and featuring songs like "Cold Enemy" and "Obey" which have also been released in other compilations around the world ("Flowers in the desert" EMI compilation, "Rock hard" CD compilation of the german magazine, "Hard Rock magazine CD" French edition, and "Les Eclectiques Raptiviste").

Early 2009 Lazywall plays the SXSW festival in Austin Texas and a show in Los Angeles with guitarists Mark Levine and Lanny Cordola, and gets more attention in the USA, with interviews in NBC, Spinearth, and hits the top10 in some radios. Soon after, the band settles in Tangier, Morocco. Tarik E. joins the band as a guitarist, and the rest of the year sees the adition of two other bands members, Rachid on moroccan percussions and Youness Fakhar on Oud. Back to their craddle, in their Souk Asylum studios, the band start to record their new material.

2010 becomes the most succesfull year for the band, they play a live show on 2M TV, being the first rock band to ever perform live on moroccan national television. «I Raise My hand», first song to be released from the band’s recording studios, reaches the top charts on moroccan & tunisian national radios. The band also signs a licensing deal with german label «Hands Of Blue Records» to release «Apoptosia» in Europe. The band is also invited to play in front of a 50000 crowd at one of the biggest festival of the country, Le Festival De Casablanca, being the first moroccan rock band to play at this festival.

In April 2010 Lazywall released their album "Restart", with a collection of songs unreleased in their country before, that will only be available in Morocco.
