Lucius_lo_res_press_shot_3_copy

NYC’s Lucius is a triple threat quintet with tight vocal harmonies, stomping percussion and an irresistibly charming and sincere live show. The band has announced the North American release of their debut full-length album Wildewoman on October 15 with NYC indie label Mom+Pop. Produced by Dan Molad & Lucius, Wildewoman is a lush recording that preserves a modern edge while stylishly showcasing 60s classic pop influences.

As introduced on the band’s 2012 self-titled EP, Holly Laessig and Jess Wolfe’s intertwining vocals reverberate amidst rhythmic instrumentation performed by bandmates Dan Molad, Peter Lalish and Andrew Burri on this full-length, eleven song debut. “Hey, Doreen,” a new album track from Wildewoman recently premiered and guess what? You can hear it!

Solidifying its reputation as a must-see live band, Lucius has already left its mark on this year’s SXSW, Bonnaroo and Solid Sound festivals. The band takes to the road once again for headlining shows in Brooklyn, Los Angeles, San Francisco and more, and to share stages with Tegan & Sara and The Head and the Heart.
