Jakob Nowell & LAW Release “Alien” From New Album ‘Lawful Evil’ 

After recently signing with Regime Music Group and BreakSilence Recordings, Jakob Nowell and Southern California rock quartet LAW have released their latest single “Alien” with an accompanying music video. The video was directed by Eric Burdett and features dark circus-like visuals set against the moody harmonies and buzzing synth leads of this angsty pop-rock anthem. You can stream “Alien” on all streaming platforms HERE.

“Alien is about my entire life but also more specifically trying to get along with my bandmates. I hope my frustration comes across in the words and vocal melodies,” commented LAW frontman Jakob Nowell. “This whole album is very special to me because it is a goodbye to an era of my life. I am proud of what we made and even more excited for what’s to come.”

“Alien” is the lead single from LAW‘s upcoming new album Lawful Evil coming in early 2023.  Lawful Evil was recorded at J Street Studio in Sacramento under the watchful eye of producer Jack O’Donnell and chronicles the segue from LAW to the kickstart of Jakob’s solo career. The album draws listeners into a melancholic world that quickly self-destructs under its own weight. The audience has a front row seat to watch the apocalyptic day-of-reckoning. The album cover art was illustrated by Alice Baron and features a baby chimera hatching from an egg to symbolize the new era emerging out of the ashes of Nowell’s former band.

LAW recently partnered with SRH for a limited edition collab shirt to celebrate the release of their first single and music video for “Alien”. The LAW x SRH t-shirt design can be found online HERE and includes a free digital download of “Alien”.
