From Birmingham, AL, Lynam is a band that has no limits. With the attitude of Sid Vicious and the pure energy of early Guns N Roses, the four members that make up the band Lynam have a take no prisoners approach to their music. “We all got turned on to music early on.” says front man Jacob Bunton. “We really latched on to the larger than life spectacle of 80s rock bands. All of the old videos and concerts look like one big party. Everyone is having a good time and the music is about having fun. These days it seams like bands are whining about how hard it was growing up in suburbia instead of giving their fans a great show.”
Lynam consists of Jacob Bunton (lead vocals, guitar), David Lynam (drums, vocals), Cody Elliott (Bass, Vocals), and Lonny Paul (guitar, vocals).
In 2005, Lynam signed a deal with DRT/Universal Records and released the critically acclaimed album Slave To The Machine in 2006. This album peaked at #21 on Billboard’s Top Independent Albums chart and #19 on the Heat- seekers chart. The first single “Tanis” went to #1 on both the active rock independent and main-stream rock independent charts. The band’s 2008 album Tragic City Symphony was released on Megaforce / Mascot records and featured the radio singles ‘Save My Soul’, ‘Lindsay Says’, and ‘Porn Star’. All three singles reached the top 10 on the active rock independent chart with ‘Save My Soul’ reaching top 5 with over 10 million in audience. Several of the album’s songs were also used in motion pictures, MTV, VH1, HBO, and video games. A Live album entitled Thank You Goodnight! was released November 2010 through Island Def Jam/New Ocean Media.
