Lord Huron to Release Debut Album on IAMSOUND Records October 9th!

7/11/2012

"Lonesome Dreams“, the first full-length album from rising LA-based band Lord Huron, will be released October 9 on the independent label IAMSOUND Records. Lord Huron is a musical and visual project created by lead-singer and Michigan native-turned-Angeleno Ben Schneider. The new record follows the Mighty EP, which was praised by NPR and that Pitchfork called “an invigorating listen.” Additionally The Los Angeles Times described the EP as “full of lush acoustic guitars and Midwestern-accented harmonies as warm as a winter fireplace.”To support the debut, the band will embark on a U.S. tour this fall.

Lord Huron toured extensively throughout 2011, including stops at SXSW, Outside Lands and Lollapalooza, while continuing to develop their live performances. The first official music video for the song “Stranger,” off the second EP, Mighty, was conceived by the band and shot by Jacob Mendel on the shores of Lake Huron: http://vimeo.com/19583675.
