Lucius confirms fall tour dates + featured in an episode of Cameron Crowe's TV show Roadies on Showtime

LUCIUS CONFIRMS FALL TOUR DATES
 
GOOD GRIEF OUT NOW VIA MOM + POP TO WIDESPREAD CRITICAL ACCLAIM
 
 
 
After a stretch of sold out U.S. shows Lucius confirms additional tour dates this fall with stops in Nashville, New Orleans, San Francisco, Houston and more. The new shows are in conjunction with the bands forthcoming headlining performances at New York’s SummerStage and Boston’s House Of Blues. Ticket pre-sale begins on Wednesday, August 3 at 10 AM EST and can be purchased at ilovelucius.com/tour. Additionally, vocalists Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig will perform with Roger Waters and his band in Mexico and this October at Desert Trip Music Festival.
 
Of their live show, The New York Times proclaims, “What’s impressive about this duo is how the two use their approach to several different effects: one moment, it was as if they were singing in the round at the Ryman; the next, they attempted extravagant Pointer Sisters-like up-tempo soul; later, it was Velvet Underground-style whispers.” See below for complete tour dates.
 
Additionally, Lucius was recently featured in and scored an episode of the new Cameron Crowe directed TV show Roadies on Showtime.
 
Good Grief continues to receive critical acclaim:
 
“Ebullient.”—Rolling Stone
 
“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 Music
 
“Especially gorgeous, moving…”—The New York Times
 
“But on the strength of tightly stitched melodies, an occasionally striking image, and those surging voices, it is more often lovely, well-crafted stuff.”—NPR’s Fresh Air
 
 “We won’t be in tomorrow because we hit our heads on the ceiling while dancing on the bed to Lucius.”—The Late Show with Stephen Colbert
 
“…buoyant as ever, shapeshifting and gleefully coopting 80s and 90s pop-vocal gymnastics.” —Under The Radar
 
Good Grief was produced by Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, Weezer) and Lucius with Bob Ezrin. The album was mixed by Tom Elmhirst (Adele, Beck). Of the album, vocalist Wolfe says, “When we started writing for this record, we had been away from home for nearly two years. We had just returned from tour, having gone through such varied emotions—loneliness, sadness and exhaustion alongside excitement, fulfillment and some of the most joyful moments in our lives…Whenever one of us had an idea or a feeling, the other was already a witness to it and could help navigate through it—for the two of us, this usually came in song form.” Vocalist Laessig adds, “…When considering titles, we wanted to be sure to acknowledge any serious subject matter, while simultaneously allowing ourselves a comic sigh of relief from any personal turmoil. Ha! The yin and yang of the record naturally unveiled itself and, so, Good Grief.”
 
Lucius is led by its co-founders and vocalists Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig accompanied by multi-instrumentalists Dan Molad, Peter Lalish and Andrew Burri. You can purchase Good Grief here: http://bit.ly/1VRQWvK
