Allah-Las – ‘501-415’ – Across The Ocean

Allah-Las – ‘501-415’

Following on from their acclaimed self-titled debut LP, LA outfit Allah-Las return with their vintage California sounds of new single ‘501-415’ taken from their forthcoming second album “Worship The Sun” due for release this September.


Expanding on the sound established by their debut, they called upon Innovative Leisure label-mate Nick Waterhouse to collaborate on production for their sophomore effort. Honing in on their fusion of West Coast garage rock and roll, Latin percussion and electric folk, ‘501-415’ will have us pining for the summer days, that as we throw on our coats and scarves, currently seem to far away.

Allah-Las met while working at Amoeba Music, a key destination for music lovers in Los Angeles. While this experience helped shape their sensibility, their sound was forged in an underground basement where they came together as a band. They began gigging in Los Angeles in 2008, refining their live performance, and finally released their first 7” single ‘Catamaran / Long Journey’ in 2011. In 2012, they began their relationship with Innovative Leisure, releasing their first self-titled album, “Allah-Las”, anchored by their second single ‘Tell Me (What’s On Your Mind) / Sacred Sands’. The band toured extensively in the States and abroad most recently playing Nashville’s Bonnaroo Festival before going back into the studio to record their follow-up.
