Emerging post grunge rock band Liquid State Drive (LSD) is set to release their debut album on Friday. The band released a mobile video game prior to the album for which they have been creating buzz on social media.

LSD is the first Bangladeshi band to have an android video game along with the debut album.

The game called, "LSD: Last Survival Days" has been the second most trending game on Google Play Store since it was released. 

When contacted, the band members shared interesting stories about the game and their debut album with the Dhaka Tribune’s Showtime. 

“A video game with the debut album, we don't think no one ever has done anything like this here in Bangladesh. It feels amazing to begin a kind of a trend, and it feels amazing to see how well it has been received so far,” Rushmian, vocalist of the band said in excitement.

“It was Sakib and Sajid's joined idea.”

While talking about the game, Sakib said: “A few months ago when Sajid and I were returning to Dhaka from Chittagong by bus, we came up with the idea of creating an Android game while talking about our favourite childhood PC and console games.” 

Struck with nostalgia, Sakib further said: “The soundtracks of those games are still very fresh to our memories and these tracks take us back to the good old days. Therefore, we thought why not we create an Android game based on some of the songs of our upcoming debut album.” 

Without any further delay, the band searched for a studio to create the game for them, and they found PixelBrick Studios, the developer of the game. 

After two months of hard work, the game was released on Sunday. 

“The whole idea behind the game was to reach more people before our album is released, especially those who are fond of mobile video games,” told the vocalist. 

“The design of the game was made in such a way that it represents the theme of the album and the songs which can be described as a socio-political war against the whole existence of humans, to fight for our existence and who we are supposed to be,” he added.

Sakib added: “The game sort of represents a bit of that.”

The four characters of the game were designed based on the basic characteristics of the band members. Additionally, the characters have been named after them as well. 

Rushmian said: “In the game Sakib has a Jackson V guitar and punk rock hair, haha!”

The debut album called, “Tomar Itihash” is based on band members’ life experiences and how they see the world. 

“What we learn from our childhood, the lies we've been fed, the inner demons we have which brings out the illness in this world,” said the band members in chorus. 

There will be a total of eight songs in the album which are “Gobhir,” “Opare,” “Mithha-bichhinota,” “Attoshur,” “Bibhrom,” “Ostitter Obokash,” “Barud,” and “Tomar Itihash.”

Current line-up of the band features Rushmian Wadud on vocals/rhythm guitars, Sajidul Hossain on drums/percussion, and backing vocals with Safwan Ahsanullah on bass, and Sakib Noor on lead guitars.
