Brooklyn’s Lucius will release a special edition Genevieve 7” vinyl on July 1 via Mom + Pop/Dine Alone Records. Exclusive colours will be available to purchase at the Dine Alone Webstore (green, white) + the Mom+Pop Webstore (yellow, white).

Genevieve will include its namesake, the infectious B-side from the band’s debut album Wildewoman and will be B/W a cover of Tears For Fears’ legendary single “Everybody Wants To Rule The World”. The cover highlights Lucius’ signature harmonies and delicate instrumental touches. It was unveiled on SPIN Magazine earlier today.

 

Lucius’ Rdio Session which was recorded in the historic Driskill Hotel in downtown Austin, TX during SXSW, is now available exclusively on Rdio. The recording features a uniquely stripped-down take on the bands’ brand of soulful indie pop.

 

Lucius have had a busy nine months since the release of their critically acclaimed debut full-length album Wildewoman last October. The band made their US late night TV debut on Conan, toured with Tegan and Sara & The Head and The Heart, performed at Governors Ball & Firefly (amongst other festivals), and had a hugely successful headlining European tour. Watch the band perform the infectious single “Turn It Around” live on CONAN here.

 

The quintet will continue to tour though the summer & fall, supporting Sara Bareilles & making stops at a slew of major festivals including TURF, Ottawa Bluesfest, Edmonton Folk Festival (MAIN STAGE), Lollapalooza, Newport Folk & Austin City Limits.  See below for a complete list of tour dates below.
