Album Cover Artwork

Virginia talks about the artwork for the cover of the soon to be released album, Evolve!

After much heckling from the lads, I was given the task of doing the album cover artwork for Lillyes debut full length album, Evolve.

After much contemplation, I came to the conclusion that I should just let my hand draw and see where it would lead me. I wanted to incorporate a feeling of movement with an almost abstract way the world has evolved. Alas.. this was the outcome!

I don’t consider myself to be an ‘artist’ as such but I do enjoy creating with pen, pencil and paint. With every art piece that I do, once something has been placed on paper, canvas, even drum skins, I never erase or delete any component as I feel every stroke is meant to be there.

Excitement is building in the Lillye camp!! ??

Gilby Clarke Support in Canberra

We are super excited and stoked to be asked to be the main support band for Kilby Clarke in Canberra!

Gilby Clarke needs no introduction to rock fans. He played in both Guns N’ Roses and the MC5. Who else can claim membership in two of the most life-altering rock ’n’ roll outfits to ever exist on the planet? Clarke hit the stage with his GN’R running buds at the 2012 Rock ’n’ Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony – he appeared on the band’sThe Spaghetti Incident, Live Era ’88-’91 and Greatest Hits albums, and spent years on the massive Use Your Illusion world tour in the ’90s – but his proudest GN’R moment is, he says, the Gilby rolls mode on the GN’R pinball machine!

Before joining the GN’R circus, the guitarist bounced from the great Candy to his own, heartbreakingly ignored, big-riff quartet Kill for Thrills. Clarke has, along the way, toured, and/or recorded with everyone from Nancy Sinatra to Heart to Gene Simmons to Slash’s Snakepit. In between touring & recording he was making videos with not only GNR, but Michael Jackson & Slash when MTV was de rigueur. Perhaps you saw him starring alongside Mötley Crüe’s Tommy Lee on Rockstar: Supernova or VH1 Honors with Rob Zombie, Slash & Ace Frehely?

Then there’s his solo career that earned him critical winks and sales for such albums as Pawnshop Guitars (including the American hits“Cure Me … Or Kill Me,” and “Tijuana Jail”), The Hangover (two songs made Bruce Willis’ The Story of Us), Rubber, 99 Live & Swag.

Clarke, who’s an old school mash-up of Keef, Johnny Thunders, andB.B. King, continues to write fist-jacking rock ’n’ roll songs with fat choruses, and appear on stages around the globe. He produces worthy bands too. He’s also one of the sweetest gents you’ll ever meet. He’s a guitar hero, certainly, but also a gentleman whose heart happens to rush at rock ’n’ roll speed.

Gilby is hitting the east coast of Australia for some intimate, sweaty, raw, totally Rock ‘n’ Roll shows! Gilby will be ripping up a selection of hits from his past bands Guns N Roses, Slash’s Snakepit, RockStar Supernova, MC5 and much more with full back up band! Joining him in Canberra will be Sydney hard hitting rock band Lillyè, also supporting will be Screaming Eagle and Johnny Roadkill.

Lillyè are the main support for Gilby Clarke!
