Just announced in Albuquerque!!!

Throughout my discography I've had many songs with what one might call "queer" subtext. Although I have always felt they were obvious, sometimes specific words and images need be used in order to spell it out for the listener.

"Drive" from "Alive In The Hot Zone" is one of those songs, directly written about the alienation felt by closeted queer persons, specifically in small towns. As too many of us know, it can be a deadly prospect and frightening to even imagine coming out of the closet. Be that as it may, this song has a happy ending, coming out loud, proud and triumphant after the subjects finally take that leap toward living as their true selves.

Request for the lyrics Austin. 💕 My ears aren’t able to pick up the lyrics anymore. I feel this one is too important not to.

Love that song so much!!!❤️❤️❤️

How do you get yourself through situations where people want to shit inside of your heart and fuck up your life? If you're me, you take a bunch of vacations to places that happen to be accessible to you and generally just take stock of the ways in which life is awesome.

While it hasn't helped my ADHD to be so random all summer, it sure has filled up my heart with joy and beauty. Which brings me to my next point, I have boxing, I have swimming, I have hiking, I have long distance running and sun and fun and friends and music.

BUT... I still need therapy and meds and probably more therapy, off and on forever. Because that's what doing the work of self improvement and mental health looks like for a lot of us.

Anyway, love y'all big! Talk to you soon

I've been in therapy for 22 years. I'm the happiest person I know. It's worth every minute. I hope you are healing. All the love.

Well if nothing else you can look at your awesomeness n know you’re walking the walk Keep on trucking my friend

Therapy therapy therapy. My mom is a social worker, so I have a special place in my heart for mental health care. My wife and I see a therapist together and separately. We work on ourselves individually and together. It's a must! Keep.on rockin!

ADHD is so hard. I think taking part of the things you actually enjoy and fill you with happiness and that reinvigorate you are really good solutions if you are not able to access Therapy/Meds. If you are enjoying what you are doing, and it’s adding to your life and NOT hurting you or harming you- then it’s a good way way to get the serotonin/dopamine factory going. The Japanese believe that Nature is healing so you are basically already doing a lot of good work!!

Twinsies. Love the wording. Shit inside my heart and fuck up my life is defo where I've been.

Looks great, wherever it is.

come visit austin again and train some muay thai w us homie 🙌

I feel ya.. enjoy the world for me. Trapped in Indiana.. lol

such a snack!

💗

The path is the goal friend

Two days ago, at a festival in Finland that I wasn't even playing, a person shyly approached me around 3am and asked if I was Austin Lucas. I was drinking beers, talking trash with punks that I hadn't seen in 10-20 years and enjoying myself, so I probably gave them some silly remark and then admitted that I was. Within a few minutes, they had told me how much my songs meant to them and while doing so, became moved to tears. This person seemed embarrassed but I dried their tears with my dirty fingers, hugged them and told them how much what they told me meant to me as well. I didn't see them again but if they are out there reading this, I want them to know that they made me feel so remarkably special and appreciated. Thank you Rass(sp?) We are forever friends, whether you know it or not. You asked me never to stop making music and I promise, I won't!

Your music has carried me through some awful physical pain and much mental anguish. You’re a gem 💎. Even last night I was sitting in a quiet room, door closed, singing with you and Tim while I stitched and cried it all out. Your song Shoulders came on, and I just closed my eyes, breathed, and listened.

You changed my life with how accepting you are, smoking a cigarette with you outside of DC9 was a door opening to a cast of characters I never knew existed and consider life long friends and some that aren't here any longer.

This doesn’t surprise me in the slightest!! I remember the first time I heard you play it changed my entire perception of country music by your second song.

Love this ❤️ And you have many songs that have moved and changed me... Bug hugs!

Your music moves me and I love reading about this!!!!! You're awesome Austin, xoxo!

Not to pile on, but I discovered your music right before my son started school in Bloomington, and to me, you are the sound of that town every time I'm there. Love those Monroe County nights and feel like I'm not getting the full effect of Monroe county.

That’s amazing. And not surprised in the least. The power of your songs is always there

When I was excommunicated in Btown (which I earned ;) you always treated me same as the day I met you. Always hold high regard for that…

was great catching up for a bit 🙂 always nice to see ya!

Nice photo. I like the long haired you!

Moments like that make every empty room and wallpaper gig worth it. The late nights, the driving, the shitty pay, all of it. Worth every indignity and horror that the road can offer.

Same here! You are an inspiration and soundtrack to my life...

I found your cd in a free bin and have bought every single album since....your also a sweetheart and one hell of a human that looks great in a sundress!

❤️ So... when's the next gig in Finland, so we can give you more awesome stories like this one? 🙏🏼

Where in Finland are you? It is my mother’s homeland and I have many relatives there.

That’s what’s up

That is just amazing!

thats it. thats the real fuel. right there.

That's what it's all about!

It was great surprise to see u there!

what a great legacy.....You have succeeded.

❤️❤️❤️❤️

So great!

How lovely..and great photo xx

So much of what has occurred this past year has hurt, saying goodbye to a big love, walking away from that life, the support structure and dreams of a shared future has left me feeling unbalanced and exposed.

As well, learning how to advocate for myself has been incredibly difficult, with a steep and high stakes learning curve. This education meant bowing out or saying no to things that I wanted to do or help with but couldn't accomplish without doing harm to myself. It also meant letting people down and eventually feeling the sting of cutting out folks who I loved deeply but consistently proved that they didn't have my best intentions at heart. However, the worst aspect of a period of change like this has been reopening myself to their wrath, because saying enough is enough often means an extended period as a target, when you raise your head up high and walk away.

It's all along way from people's park after school. Keep pushing my friend.

Just keep doing what you need to do for you and remember that as they say, those that matter won't mind and those that mind don't matter

So very well said. Sending sparks your way.

As does my beagle.

Are you familiar with the television series Better Call Saul? In last weeks episode this dog played kind of a big part. Looks like you found Nippy. 😁

Hey Austin. I run a private house venue La Sala in Albuquerque. It’s a 100-year-old haunted dancehall converted into a private residence and music venue. Let’s chat about a show?

I'd love to offer you a night in Iowa, but I'm afraid I'm too far off the beaten path for it to work logistically. Please let me know what pops up on that date, and worst case, you're always welcome to crash here in NW Iowa on your way up to Minneapolis.

I don’t have the space here in Sac for a house show (at least not indoors, which would have to be the case in November) but I do have a guest house and you’re welcome to it for as long as you need a place to crash.

If St Paul is close enough to Minneapolis (they’re literally touching), we’d love to host. Could maybe/probably offer a spare bedroom or two for the night too

I hope you come back to Atlanta again after the west coast. I don't personally have a connection to any places for shows, but know a few people to ask that I think would know.

If not Tempe, could find something for you in Tucson.

I could help out some with Seattle

You'll be in LA on a Sunday which is when we actually have a DIY roots/country/Americana event, though it's a venue (the Echo). They're also related to the local vegan coffeeshop/record store down the street from them. I'll contact you soon to see if I can make something happen.

Punk basement show at my place in Oakland?

Do a house show tour for the Midwest/East Coast pls.

Let me see what we can do for you in Iowa for sure!!!!

Ohio December 2?

Chicago/Northwest Indiana

You should chat with The Olympic Venue for the Boise date, if you don't have it booked yet.

Canada? Specifically Toronto?

Can help with Wichita on the 28th

This photo! Wow!

Add Michigan?

Once back in EU please pass through Brussels BE

Michael Stivers

Wahoo...IOWA!!!!!!!!!!!!

EPIC pic ❤️

Adventure time. As you may already know, I've been trying hard to live my absolute best life this summer after a really difficult spring. This means I'm saying yes to whatever awesome thing comes into my path and so far it has yielded tremendous results.

After a fight in Wiesbaden, a camping trip to Slovenia and another fight this weekend in Chemnitz, I'm now in Berlin until Thursday before heading back to Finland for Puntala Rock and a training staycation in Turku with one of my favorite humans for a week. If you live anywhere in these areas and want to hangout, let me know. America, I'll see you Sept. - Dec.
