Orange County, CA: California-based, Canadian multi-instrumentalist Lucas Lee announces a new album, featuring drumming virtuoso Marco Minnemann (Joe Satriani, Steven Wilson, The Aristocrats). The 6-track, 42-minute instrumental rock fusion/ progressive rock album is entitled, "Lowered Expectations". This album is released less than a year after the previous, "Acceptances of Gravitational Collapsing Manifestations", which also featured Minnemann.

The new album features a mixture of virtuosic playing via friendly cohesive interactions between Lee and Minnemann, with various stretches of melodic journeys. The compositions also consist of an assortment of experimental moments, sprinkled with blends of accessible motifs, and at times, with mischievous twists. The music can be serious but also contains flashes of eccentricity. Majority of the album was tracked at Lee's and Minnemann's respective studios in Southern California. Mastering of the album was also done in Southern California, at Veneto West, by distinguished engineer Ronan Chris Murphy (King Crimson, Gwar, Terry Bozzio, Steve Morse).

Lucas: "This album is about lowered expectations. It's about celebration of mediocrity. It's about society's obsession with the 'top'. It's about marginalization. It's about what's deemed as unspoken etiquette being regularly violated. It's about exclusion. It's about taking things and people for granted. It's about judgment and expectation of people's abilities based on their appearances. It's about work always be pushed aside, ignored or criticized despite of all the things that went into it. The themes all revolve around my personal take on the wide topic of "lowered expectations" and this is my attempt in crystallizing it all down into a 42-minte album.

It was great be able to have Marco play drums again on this new set of songs, in between his touring and clinic schedules during the summer. As with the last release, he had complete freedom to play all drum parts as he saw fit in this. The parts are tasteful as always and the energy felt right. I just can't be happier with the results. My biggest hope is that listeners will find our performances in the songs genuine and enjoy both the serious and silly moments."

CD Track Listing
1. Marginalized
2. A Jester's Gesture
3. Paternal Irresponsibilities
4. Scripted Empathy/ Uninvited Guests
5. Grateful to Entitled to Disrespectful
6. Please Do Not Squat on the Toilet Seat

"Lowered Expectations" is now available for pre-order on Amazon and is set to release on October 18, 2018.
