LENNY LASHELY'S GANG OF ONE is the latest project from the former Darkbuster frontman. A longtime fixture in the Boston punk scene, Lenny has been playing and touring with his original music for over 16 years. After a traumatic run of Europe in ' 08 (resulting in a mental breakdown) and a few years of reflection, Lenny has re-emerged onto the scene, playing solo acoustic shows and even a Darkbuster reunion show.

A good friend (Joe Koukos [Holdfast Records, Asbury Park, NJ]) introduced Lenny to Bouncing Souls guitarist, Pete Steinkopf, to record and produce a 3 song 7" picture disc record. Originally intended to be a singer/songwriter styled recording, the project took a life of its own with luminaries Pete Steinkopf and Bryan Keinlen from The Bouncing Souls and Joe Sirois from The Mighty Mighty Bosstones lending their talents to the recording. Following the release of the EP, Lenny began to record his follow-up effort, a 10 song full length record. Once again, Pete, Bryan, and Joe joined in, as well as Bouncing Souls drummer Michael McDermott and many other talented musicians. The result is "Illuminator."

Co-released by Pirates Press Records and Panic State Records, these ten new original tunes run the gamut of straight up rock to heart wrenching acoustic tunes. It documents some of what life has dealt Lenny over the past few years and how he has come to deal with it and is undoubtedly Lenny Lashley's best work to date!
