The Lazy Dayz
Foundation of the band
The Lazy Dayz is a German rock band, formed in 2018. The band consists of Ingo (lead vocals), Tony (lead guitar, backing vocals), Kiwi (rhythm guitar), Timo (bass) and Sascha (drums, backing vocals) . The Lazy Dayz was originally formed as a two-man side project by Sascha and Tony, who ran a band at that time. As this band broke up in early 2019, Kiwi from the previous band also joined The Lazy Dayz. Shortly afterwards Timo joined the band on bass. Lead singer Ingo, with whom Sascha played in a band years ago, completed the line-up in September 2019.
Song material and Composition
The Lazy Dayz only play their own songs, no covers. Main songwriter of the band is Sascha. He writes most of the lyrics and the majority of the music. Sascha is constantly writing new stuff and since Tony and Ingo also write songs occasionally, the band has a huge amount of songs. Once Sascha (or Tony / Ingo) has composed the basic structure of a song, the band is fine-tuning them at specific songwriting sessions, with Tony working out the guitar solos and Ingo, Kiwi and Timo bringing their own soul and know-how in the songs.
Music style / Influences
The Lazy Dayz simply call their songs rock music in order not to be squeezed into certain categories.
If you want to narrow it down a little further, a mixture of American rock’n roll, hard rock, blues rock spiced with ingredients from country, gospel and stoner rock would be appropriate.
The musical roots can be found in the 60’s and 70’s. Bands like Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers or the early AC / DC can certainly be named as huge influences. But also newer bands influence the band, e.g. Rival Sons, Marilyn Manson, Red Hot Chilli Peppers or The Pretty Reckless.
Of course you could list many other bands from different genres here, but that would go beyond the scope.
From all these influences the band creates their very own style and offers powerful rock songs with catchy refrains and hooklines.
Publications / Future
The Lazy Dayz released their first album ‘Welcome To The Rodeo’ on May 2nd, 2021 on all known platforms as download and / or stream. The album was recorded independently from May 2020 to early 2021 and externally mastered in March 2021. Due to the corona pandemic, which lasted during the entire recording period, the work on the album turned out to be challenging: At almost no time all five band members could work together on the songs. Nevertheless the band managed to keep their self-selected release date.
The band is currently working on songs for a second album, which will be released in the course of 2022.
On August 21, 2021, the band released ‘Angel’ as a single on all platforms. Angel is the first single of the second album, which will get released in 2022.
On November 26, 2021, ‘Do It Right’ will get released on all platforms, the next single of the second album.

Album Review “Welcome to the Rodeo” by The Lazy Dayz !!
If you look at the musical influences the gentlemen from Lower Saxony state, you can guess where the journey is going.
Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Johnny Cash, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Marylin Manson, Rival Sons, or Red Hot Chilli Peppers promise a musical journey without having to commit to a particular musical style.
The opener “Rodeo” immediately pulls us into a world of straight riffs, a catchy melody and a very distinctive voice !!
“Black Soul” … are we still on the same album? Oh yeah, and now we know why The Lazy Dayz say of themselves that they can’t be pigeonholed. Hard-stoner rock with influences from the gospel make this song special; also by the background vocals of Danyelle Vanes and Sebastian Cuthbert, who by the way also mastered the album !!
At the latest at “Country Town” the controls are on the stop and so we come to … “Morning Light” from the first single. When we heard the song for the first time we thought … “Hey, we know that one”. That’s because this song hits your ear straight away, absolutely catchy tune. Catchy melody, which is underpinned by the great voice of Juliet. And again a new style. Finest rock on a world class level !!
“Sons of Revolution” … “Boondocks” … “Leave the Past behind”.
3 songs that just invite you to listen. With this 3-pack “The Lazy Dayz” show their diversity. And you can hear that it is musicians who understand their craft. Perfectly coordinated. With these 3 songs we have meanwhile canceled the control, just listen and enjoy the music.
“Fear the Voices” and “Something Wicked This Way Comes”.We are no longer surprised that things are heading in a new direction and why not go in the direction of blues rock when you do it as perfectly as in these two songs!”10,000 Miles” and it gets a bit louder. Absolutely brilliant solos on the “riot violin” … drums that lead through the entire song, a song that really burns into your ear canals!The final song “Will you follow me” slowly brings us back from this incredible journey. A worthy last song for this album !!Conclusion: “Welcome to the Rodeo” is an album that we would not have expected. 11 songs and somehow 11 different directions make it extraordinary. Texts that have something to say and musically the very highest league !! If you are into demanding music and are not nailed to any style, this album is an absolute must !!
Can we give 10 out of 10? Probably not … we’re inclined to give 11 out of 10!
