We're LUSUS! We're a MONSTER METAL band from Massachusetts. For the past two years we've played dozens of different venues through New England, released an EP, a music video, and captivated thousands of people. We're happy to be surrounded by the community that embraced us despite our differences (read SPOOK) but we do aim for more! We strive for bigger crowds, more heartfelt and energetic music and, well, to put it simply: GREATNESS.
SAM'S HOUSE, 2019
So far we've done everything by ourselves (with a little help from our friends), no record label, no manager. But now we decided it's time to reach out to all the beautiful people that headbanged and moshed to our music, to all the pretty girls that wore our bright pink LUSUS shirt around the USA (and other countries too!), to all the strong boys that carried Sam around from the pit to the stage, to all the people that dared to watch our show from the first few rows and got splashed with black blood across the face.
Yes! We may seem terrifying to most people! We're aware of that - more than aware, it's 100% intentional. A lot of the reason why we do that is because we try to break paradigms. We won't judge you because of what you look like, what color skin you have, where you were born or who you sleep with. The world is a stage and we're always playing a part, so it's your prerogative whether you want to be a nice person or a mean person - we choose to be nice and we encourage you to do the same.
We compiled some of our best artwork ideas and turned them into shirts, hats, hoodies and pins. We came up with some really interesting reward ideas that might pique your interest.
"MONSTER METAL" HOODIE
Through those donations you can help us fund our most recent (and exciting) endeavor to date: our first tour! We're going all over the Midwest and Eastern USA to spread our music and our message of inclusion, acceptance. We're also releasing our debut album "Per Aspera Ad Astra" (which is latin for "through adversity to the stars").
We need a lot more funds than we're asking for. Doing all of this as a four piece band is a CRAZY amount of work but we're not lazy. We've been working day and night to make this possible, to be able to take an entire month and dedicate it to our dream and to partying with you!
We hope you can contribute and will come see us live! Every donation counts, every friend that we meet, every single person that comes to the shows: you make us one step closer to reaching new horizons and our dream.
Thank you! We love you!
Sam, Jeff, Shahin, Max!

Risks and challenges
The short amount of time we will have to fulfill all of the rewards before we head out on tour is going to be our biggest challenge. We will make sure to put our orders through for merchandise and CD's in a precise and timely manner. We are going to work hard to make sure everyone gets their rewards on or before October 1st.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
