Lucius have shared a second track from their forthcoming acoustic album, NUDES. The Tame Impala cover “Eventually” can be heard HERE. The band take what is already a heart-wrenching end-of-the-affair lament, and twirl it around their inimitable vocal chords to create a tender, transcendent ballad. NUDES will be released on March 2nd on Mom + Pop Music.
The NUDES deluxe vinyl will include the special phenakistoscope insert – as seen in the video HERE. Pre-order the vinyl and album at www.ilovelucius.com.
NUDES is a collection of songs chosen specifically to showcase their soulful, powerful voices and gorgeous harmonies, includes three brand new songs, four compositions from the band’s back catalog, and three covers. The album also features sit-ins from Wilco’s Nels Cline (on “Million Dollar Secret“) and Pink Floyd legend Roger Waters (on “Goodnight Irene“).
Lucius has drawn acclaim for powerful songs showcasing taut hooks, along with their mesmerizing stage presence and bold visual aesthetics. The band have sold out shows, headlined theaters throughout the US and Europe and collaborated with a variety of musicians including The War On Drugs, John Legend, Roger Waters, Mavis Staples, Jeff Tweedy, Nathaniel Rateliff, Lukas Nelson and David Byrne.
Recorded in collaboration with Electric Lady Studios, the release coincides with a highly anticipated acoustic tour which kicks off with three sold out nights at Los Angeles’ Largo Theater. The intimate NUDES tour then makes its way around the country, including sold out stops in Boulder, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington DC and New York’s Town Hall on March 22nd, before ending at Big Ears Festival. The band also added dates with Portugal. The Man in September. All tour dates below.
Praise for Lucius
“…Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig’s soaring vocals make a massive pop sound and hint at new possibilities for one of our favorite bands.” – NPR

“Especially gorgeous, moving…” – New York Times
“…dabling in pristine harmonies, the Berklee-trained sirens more often belt it out as a single unit with a force that decimates Phil Spector’s ‘Wall of Sound’ and has the potential to reach jupiter.” – Consequence of Sound
“This is music with an irrepressible edge.” – Relix
