POP-ROCK band MacStanley, formerly known as Flat Stanley, has just released their third album, Lucid, Alive and Dreaming. The album, the group’s first in five years, was mastered in New York, and is being released in South Africa by 2 Feet Music, an imprint of Sheer Sound. The new album retains the band’s unique sound but, in addition to the melodic pop songs they’re well known for, the album also contains some haunting ballads and a few edgier, harder rock tracks. Explaining their absence from the music scene for a while, band members Andy Mac, Clinton and Neil explains: “More recently we’ve been somewhat out of the public eye, but not idle. “During this time we’ve been working steadily on new material, pursuing various opportunities in Europe and building the fantastic support team that we are currently privileged to have around us. “We’re extremely proud of our new album and we can’t wait to share it with our fans.’ The band will perform some of their new tracks at the annual Heineken Symphonic Rocks concert, on October 6, in the Big Top Arena, Carnival City.
