LUCA are Mark Rankin (vocals/guitar) David McManus (drums) Andrew McLaughlin (bass) and Jonny Cairns (guitar).

Ahead of their debut mini album “Sectioned” due for release April 2013 “Hospital” is the third single to be released and the third of a three song set to be self-released this year by the band. Recorded in Manchester’s Moolah Rouge Studios with Dan Broad (happy Mondays, I am Kloot) “Sectioned” is the result of endless hours in the studio writing and rehearsing finding their own sound.

To accompany the singles LUCA have also release a three part short film with parts one and two really well received and garnering hundreds of view on YouTube despite the early stages of the band.

Parts one and two can be found on the bands YouTube channel with Part 3 pencilled for release on may 1st 2013:

Formed in late 2011 after meeting through friends and a shared passion for the same music. Luca spent their early months with endless rehearsal sessions looking for the right sound before taking to the stage for their debut show as part of King Tuts New Year revolution festival and taking to the infamous Glasgow venues stage a further twice in that year. More recently LUCA were asked by Glasgow indie label Flowers in the dustbin to support Mummy Short Arms at their album launch at the now defunct captain’s rest which Luca were delighted to play.

2013 started once again at King Tuts New Year revolution festival as the band were asked back to perform for the second year running before heading to Dumfries to play the “Big Burns Supper” alongside such acts as The Imagineers and Three Blind Wolves.

LUCA recently took part in the first "Tenement Trail" in Glasgow playing the art school alongside Nevada Base, Discopolis and headliners Kassidy.

May first sees the band release their debut Mini Album at a launch show in Glasgow followed by a 7 date Scottish tour shortly to be announced

2012 was the year to record and prepare... 2013 comes the Launch
