[FAT] Its been over a decade since THE LILLINGTONS released a full-length album. Having signed to Fat Wreck Chords, they toiled away on their new record in secret, crafting an album that is both a continuation of the bands legacy and a dramatic reinvention. Its called Stella Sapiente, a title that vocalist-guitarist Kody Templeman says roughly translates to "wisdom of the stars". As a band that has never-and likely will never find much interest in the mundane, their songs are pulpy vignettes steeped in intrigue, unraveling mysteries, conspiracies, and cloak-anddagger operations while bashing through buzzy, pop-focused punk songs. Stella Sapientesees the band removing all preconceived notions of what a LILLINGTONS record should sound like. While elements of the album may not be hallmarks of their genre, the way in whichTHE LILLINGTONS adapt them for their use makes them feel right at home. "Insect Nightmares" has the propulsive energy of a classic LILLINGTONS song, but there are palm-muted, chuggingguitars flanked by uproarious leads, as if the band pillaged vintage metal records, taking only the best ideas and leaving the excess behind. Elsewhere, a track like "Night Visions" could easily pass for a Devo-like soundscape, providing the perfect soundtrack for traversing underground tunnels and thumbing through ancient texts. all in all, Stella Sapiene is sure to be an instant classic.
