Dominating the global scene with their self-titled debut featuring their hit single "Ho Hey", The Lumineers quickly became a staple favorite in the alt-folk scene. In January 2022, the band released their newest album "Brightside", featuring its hit singles "A.M. Radio", "Big Shot", "Brightside", and "Where We Are". Following an extensive world tour in support of the album, The Lumineers are taking a 'big shot' by launching a series of encore shows this 2023.
"We’re stoked to be back on the road, playing a run of shows in the US later this year with our good friend @jamesbaymusic," the band wrote on Instagram.
"I’m headed for the Brightside, baby, tonight." the band declares in their track "REPRISE". With a record full of melodic hooks and anthemic masterpieces, The Lumineers definitely took fans to the BRIGHTSIDE, along with big comeback tours.
Having a unique edge when it comes to lyrical storytelling, "We're just trying to capture some of the essence of what it feels like to be alive," the band told NPR. Much acclaimed for their studio recordings, The Lumineers never fail to deliver the same eccentric energy, with a touch of intimacy in their live performances. "We like the idea of stripping things down to their bare bones and playing acoustic instruments," the band shared with Rolling Stone in an interview.
Lumineers members Wesley Schultz and Jeremiah Fraites first came into the scene as an indie-duo writing songs and performing gigs in NYC. One day, they penned the band's name when a club emcee mistakenly called them "Lumineers". Since then, the name stuck around, and amassed global acclaim for their astounding lyrical tales.
Moving to Denver in 2009, the band scored a record deal, embarking on a journey that'll soon take them to brighter days. Their self-titled debut album came out in 2012, serving its global-hit single "Ho Hey". The track hit #3 in the US, and the album peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200, garnering a 3x Platinum certification from the RIAA. The band followed-up with another hit album "Cleopatra" taking the #1 spot on the same chart.
The band's notable hits and crowd-favorites include "Stubborn Heart", "Ophelia", "Cleopatra", "Sleep on the Floor", "Life in the City", and "Gloria".
As the band never fails to exucde reliability and raw emotion in every record, "My favorite albums were born out of pain and trauma that are somehow able to resonate down the road," the band shared in an interview with Atwood Magazine. "That is what we hope to do with BRIGHTSIDE."
As BRIGHTSIDE makes a live stage comeback for encore shows in the US, make sure you don't miss out on this opportunity to catch the band performing their signature intimate shows along with special guest James Bay by booking your tickets now!
