The dreamy pop-rock group, The Ladybug Transistor, formed in 1996 with their debut LP, Marlborough Farms, but has since endured many challenges. With the regrettable loss of drummer San Fadyl in 2007, band mates Gary Olson, Kyle Forester and Julia Rydholm were forced to solemnly adjust. The trio eventually brought three new members aboard, Mark Dzula, Eric Farber and Michael O’Neill, before beginning a new album.
The new lineup came together to form The Ladybug Transistor’s seventh studio album, Clutching Stems. The album was writing with Fadyl in mind and encompasses the feelings the band endured following the tragic event. Clutching Stems is set to release in June.
