Diablogato - "Lost Highway"

I've been a fan of Diablogato since seeing the Boston rockers play a killer triple bill with Salem Wolves and The Devil's Twins all the way back in 2019. Their sound has evolved since then, but it remains straight up rock and roll heavily inspired by punk and with a touch of rockabilly. Their latest single, "Lost Highway," shows the band at their darkest while still being a fun rock song. This is a heavy version of classic rock and roll and blues, sounding both familiar and completely fresh. As with Diablogato's best songs, "Lost Highway" comes at you full speed without relenting. Any quiet moment is filled with an ominous sense of dread, and it's almost a relief when the volume cranks back up.

Guitarist/vocalist Drew Indignaro says of the band's latest single:

“It’s about the blurred lines between reality and hallucinations, guilt, desire, and the nature of identity. We are inviting the listeners into our world, to enjoy the experience of traveling with us, to change perspective, and to welcome those who are on the same lost highway.”

You can watch the David Lynch inspired video for "Lost Highway" below. The single is available now via Rum Bar Records. For more on Diablogato, check out the band on Instagram and Facebook.
