"Lanterna does something that's not easy. His songs are heavily atmospheric but instead of the enclosed, immersive feel that sound often yields, his compositions gallop along pastoral back roads and across desert plains, open to the sky and gathering light like a sun-catcher."
— John Diliberto, Echoes

Champaign, Illinois' Lanterna are pleased to announce the release of their seventh album, Hidden Drives, available June 4th, 2021 on Badman Recording Co. The ten-song collection is guitarist Henry Frayne's latest offering as Lanterna, a mostly instrumental side project, begun some thirty years ago. Since the '80s, Frayne has played in Champaign bands such as Lodestone Destiny, The Syndicate, Ack-Ack, Area, and The Moon Seven Times. The past experiences in these bands influenced every song on the forthcoming Hidden Drives as it has with most previous Lanterna albums.
