Multiple Dates Already Sold Out
Stream Self-Titled Debut Album Now
To Be Released April 3 on Dualtone
Following a stellar showing at SXSW, Denver-based trio The Lumineers begin their tour tonight in San Diego, CA. The band’s upcoming self-titled debut album will see release on April 3 through Dualtone, and despite music not being released yet, many of the tour dates have already sold out, including two nights in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Seattle, Minneapolis, Chicago, and Brooklyn. The band even had to upgrade their Seattle show to a larger venue due to demand, and still ended up selling out the extra tickets in a matter of hours. For a full list of tour dates, please see below.

The band’s shows at SXSW gained them a number of new fans and earned them rave reviews, including Jon Pareles at the New York Times, Greg Kot at the Chicago Tribune, and Todd Martens at LA Times. The LA Times noted of the band’s music, “This is roots rock delivered with Arcade Fire-like grandeur…It’s showmanship, sure, as Lumineers songs are packed with crowd singalongs and call-and-response vocals, but it’s also irresistibly fun.” The Chicago Tribune hailed the band’s “folk-rock bravado.”

The band recently released their music video for first single “Ho Hey” in a coordinated effort across CMT Pure,,, and mtvU. The video was directed by Ben Fee (Crystal Antlers, Spirit Animal). You can watch the video at CMT at the link below:

The Lumineers were formed by Wesley Schultz and Jeremiah Fraites in New York. Their story begins in 2002, the year Jeremiah’s brother and Wesley’s long-time best friend, Josh, died from a drug overdose at 19.  Amidst the loss and grief, Wes and Jeremiah came together and found solace in music, writing songs and playing gigs around New York. After battling the city’s cutthroat music scene and impossibly high cost of living, the two decided to expand their horizons. They packed everything they owned and headed for Denver, Colorado, where they met cellist Neyla Pakarek. And so The Lumineers sound took shape; an amalgam of heart-swelling stomp-and-clap acoustic rock, classic pop, and front-porch folk.
