Having opened 2012 with a sold out show at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg, Lucius last night ended what has been a spectacular year for them with two sold out dates at New York’s Bowery Ballroom.
Their spectacular performance left Paul Krugman positively gushing over on his NY Times blog — “Wow. I think that may have been the best musical performance of any kind I’ve ever seen. If you’ve watched any of the videos I’ve posted, you know that they are incredible musicians. What you can’t quite get from the videos is the sheer joyousness of the whole thing — the band’s energy, the obvious fun they’re having, the rapport with the audience. At the end of the set the band moved out to do two songs — “two of us on the run” and John Lennon’s Happy Xmas — standing in the middle of the audience, and it was like a benediction.”
You can watch the aforementioned in-crowd John Lennon cover now, thanks to one very helpful fan on the internet. Thanks fan. Thanks internet.

Lucius this week unveiled the brand new video for “Tempest”, a stand-out track from the band’s debut album “Wildewoman”. Directed by Scott Cudmore (also responsible for Hunters’ “Narcissist” visual), the video navigates its way through a number of bizarre vignettes, and introduces some pretty wild(e) characters. Watch now, following the Wall Street Journal premiere on Monday.
Lucius will close out this year with two sold out dates at Bowery Ballroom, but if you missed out on a ticket you’re still in luck, the band have just announced their plans for a full US tour kicking off in January, the full itinerary can be found here, and tickets for all dates go on sale Friday.
In one last piece of Lucius news, the band were featured on this weekend’s NPR “All Things Considered”, listen back to Jess and Holly’s interview now.
Lucius debut album “Wildewoman” is out now, and for a limited time only is available to purchase for $5 through Amazon.

Hear Lucius perform “Turn It Around”, “Go Home”, and “How Loud Your Heart Gets” live for 88.1 KDHX.
In this intimate setting, all of the soulful riffs and deep harmonies become even more pronounced. The group leads things off with “Turn It Around,” a concise and playful track about losing control. They followed with the minimalist “Go Home,” which leaves the listener entranced in improvised slide guitar and haunting vocals. To close the set, the group ran through “How Loud Your Heart Gets,” a genre-spanning track that shows off their full range of tones.
Lucius’ debut album “Wildewoman” is out now, and is available for a limited time for only $5 on Amazon. Be quick, the offer only lasts until November 15!
