New Brunswick, NJ – February 2nd, 2017 – Gerry Perlinski, guitarist and vocalist with New Brunswick, NJ alternative rockers, Lost Romance has signed an endorsement deal with German-based guitar manufacturer, Framus. Framus was founded in 1946 and has a sister company with Warwick, both located in Markneukirchen, Germany.A long time evangelist of Framus guitars, the New Jersey native came across his endorsement deal in a somewhat unusual, but very organic way. While on a solo acoustic tour throughout the Mid South in the summer of 2016, Gerry had what most musicians would consider a disaster. Four days into the tour, Gerry had the opportunity to perform at one of the most well-known venues in Nashville, TN: The Bluebird Cafe. Arriving from Kentucky late that afternoon, he walked into the venue and began to tune his guitar. To his horror, the intonation had gone awry from the heat during the trip. Rather than throwing in the towel, he tuned it the best he could and to his surprise, it stayed in tune for the duration of the performance.

The following day it was clear the guitar was out of commission. Gerry searched for a Framus dealer in the area and was pleasantly surprised to find the only Framus North American showroom; located right in the heart of Nashville! The team at the showroom was incredibly accommodating. While Gerry shared his story, he played a number of Framus acoustic guitars and ultimately chose the FG 14 M – Vintage Sunburst with a Solid Mahogany top. As a result of this experience, he and the Framus team came to an agreement and the endorsement deal was struck.

“I’ve been playing a Framus acoustic for over fifteen years and have written countless songs on it,” said Perlinski. “I wanted to continue that creative magic with this guitar.”

Gerry is pleased to join the Framus/Warwick family of musicians who are endorsed by the company, which include members of Metallica, Mick Jagger, 50 Cent, Alice In Chains, Bon Jovi, Accept and many more.

Lost Romance’s new single, “Heart On A Wire” is available to stream and download on Itunes, Spotify, Bandcamp and Soundcloud here: http://www.soundcloud.com/lostromancerock.

Their new full length album, “Strum It Again” will be available in 2017.

UntitledLost Romance – rounded out by Gerry Perlinski (Guitar/Vocals), David Harman (Drums/Backing Vocals), and Dan Haag (Bass/Backing Vocals), has channeled their influences such as The Replacements, Husker Du and The Lemonheads to deliver a hard-hitting single that screams old school rock and roll.

“…a breath of fresh air” – United By Rocket Science

“It’s just so rock ‘n roll – catchy hooks, solid three chord progressions… instantly likable.” – Tri State Indie

“Anthemic songs that remind you of when FM radio was cool.” – Popa’s Tunes

Lost Romance launched “Heart On A Wire” at Maxwell’s Tavern in Hoboken on May 7, 2016 for a special Single Release show Sponsored by Speak into My Good Eye.

Gerry Perlinski, who just opened for Pat Dinizio of The Smithereens, says, “The song is about putting yourself out there in a relationship. It’s about not being afraid to be raw, honest and saying what needs to be said instead of telling the other person what they want to hear.”

LostRomance_HeartOnAWire-SiSince 2011, Lost Romance has made a name for themselves throughout the North East as a live act to be reckoned with. Averaging close to 100 tour dates a year, the band has been winning over fans from Maine all the way to Florida with raw, honest rock n’ roll. They have shared digital space on comps with Real Estate, The Front Bottoms, Nicole Atkins, La Sera and have shared stages with Rye Coalition, TAB the Band, Elliot Easton (The Cars), Clem Burke (Blondie) to name a few. In addition they have also been nominated for several Hoboken Music Awards including Outstanding Male Solo and E.P. of the year.
