Lotus is set to celebrate the end of 2014 with four shows in two different cities. Take down the holiday decorations and get ready to pop the champagne with Lotus starting December 27th and 28th at Philadelphia’s Electric Factory. Then, officially ring in the New Year on December 30th and 31st in Richmond, VA at The National. Lotus fan club members can now purchase tickets for all shows with tickets available to the public beginning Friday, September 26th.
Last Friday night, Lotus had their biggest headline show ever at Red Rocks where they performed their Talking Heads Deconstructed set. It featured Gabriel Otto of Denver's Pan Astral on vocals as reinterpreted versions of Talking Heads songs were mixed with Lotus' original music.
Lotus released the new album, Gilded Age, digitally and on vinyl on July 22nd. It includes six new, rock focused tracks and four down-tempo electronic remixes. The album was recorded with Jonathon Low (The National, Local Natives, The War on Drugs) in Philadelphia and includes guest vocalist Steve Yutzy-Burkey on three tracks. Once again, Lotus recorded live to analog tape with an emphasis on musical playing over studio tricks.
Remixes from four superb down-tempo electronic producers; KiloWatts, D.V.S*, Marley Carroll, and Skytree; take the mood into deeper realms, into a place where the brain starts reflecting on reflections and mixing together dreams and realities.
Lotus is composed of Mike Greenfield (Drums), Jesse Miller (Bass, Sampler), Luke Miller (Guitar, Keys), Mike Rempel (Guitar) and Chuck Morris (Percussion).
