Akron-born Brian Lisik has been kicking around northeast Ohio’s music scene for about two decades, initially with the indie rock band the Giants of Science, inspired by groups like Cincinnati’s Afghan Whigs and Soul Asylum. When that band broke up in the early 00s, Lisik struck out on his own, releasing his first solo album Baggage in 2004.
Three more albums have followed over the years, gaining him attention for his increasingly skillful songwriting and the unbridled passion of his vocals. Now his band Brian Lisik and the Unfortunates are ready to drop another one titled We’re Sorry, following the recent release of a single “Feudal Nights.” The 13-track album has been described as “an offering of good ole heartland rock and roll that’ll remind you why you fell in love with rock in the first place.”
The band will celebrate its release with a show at Jilly’s Music Room in downtown Akron before embarking on a packed schedule of regional dates. There’s no cover.
