Kevin Sharp of Lock Up discussed Demonization and touring


With nearly 20 years in the grindcore business, Lock Up has become one of the most iconic bands in the genre. After 6 years waiting for new material, the band has finally released their fourth studio album, Demonization, and their first one with Kevin Sharp (ex-Brutal Truth) on vocals. To expand about the album and about the upcoming European tour we talked with Kevin about the new Lock Up record. 

Lock Up is a band that had so many variations in lineup, it seems that for X or Y reason their studio and live lineup changes every few years with the only constant of Shane Embury (Napalm Death, Brujeria) and Nick Baker (ex- Cradle of Filth, ex-Dimmu Borgir) who were the ones that started the band back in 1998. 

But it seems that even with all the lineup changes, and how difficult it gets for their members to get together and create music for Lock Up due to everyone’s crazy schedule with their other bands when they get the chance that is when the magic happens, and the release of Demonization is the living proof of that, After an intense recording schedule, Lock Up is releasing their long awaited 41-minute grindcore tale, and now they are gearing up for an intense European tour with Napalm Death, Brujeria, and Power Trip
