Pop-punk duo Quiet Like A Thief released their new single “LAK” and its music video. This heartfelt single is an incredible tribute to lead vocalist Alex Kouvaris’ father, original Riot guitarist Lou ‘L.A.’ Kouvaris, who passed away from COVID-19 this year. The video features Alex’s father’s iconic black Les Paul with white pickguard.
About the passing of his father and the single, vocalist Alex Kouvaris stated:
“Due to COVID-19, my father was unable to have a proper wake or funeral. We were forced to host a service via Zoom, and there was absolutely no closure. I wrote this song for him, and my band has shot an incredible music video as a tribute to honor the kind of man he was.”
Continuing, he stated:
“Ryan and I found beauty in this disaster, taking advantage of our time during COVID to create a positive outlet and to finally write music together again. It’s a tribute my father deserves.”
Boston and Long Island based pop-punk duo Quiet Like A Thief offers up an unique and refreshing perspective and are a welcome addition to the pop-punk scene. Formed by Alex and Ryan, the two utilize their vast musical experience to bring something new and exciting to the table.
With music serving as the perfect outlet for Alex to express his grief and loss, “LAK” features heartfelt lyrics and an incredibly impassioned performance.
