Lotus just wrapped up a lengthy tour that took the band to sold-out theaters across the country. Now, they have released a 14-track collection of recordings from the tour titled 86 Revolutions which features songs from their most recent album, Eat the Light, as well music written in the earliest days of the band.
Having built a massive fanbase over the years, Lotus tours heavily selling out headline shows across the county and playing festivals such as Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Ultra, and more. Whether you catch Lotus in outdoor amphitheaters, the country's best theaters, intimate clubs or a variety of festivals, you can expect to have an experience of the senses. The band's new album, Eat the Light, is a first for Lotus - an album with vocals on every song. Guest singers appear throughout ranging from soulful to indie and electronic to rock.
Lotus announces their annual Red Rocks show taking place Saturday, September 16th. The band will be joined by openers Com Truise & Nosaj Thing. The night before, Friday, September 15th, it is an evening with Lotus as they play two sets at the Boulder Theater.
Lotus fan club members will have the opportunity to purchase special two-show tickets beginning Thursday, March 23rd at 10:00am MDT. The public on sale is Saturday, March 25th at 10:00am MDT.
Octave Cat started unintentionally. Jesse Miller (bassist for Lotus) and Eli Winderman (keyboardist for Dopapod) met up to play some of Jesse's modular and vintage synthesizers. They recorded parts of the session which evolved into the tracks “Limber Up” and “Spar.” They brought in Charlie Patierno to play drums on these two tracks, and Octave Cat was born.
Lotus announces more dates to their winter tour in support of the latest album, Eat the Light. The string of recent two-night shows continues down south at Atlanta’s Variety Playhouse & Asheville’s Orange Peel. They will also tour the California coast with stops at Solana Beach’s Belly Up, Los Angeles’ The Fonda Theatre and two nights at The Independent in San Francisco before heading to Oregon to play Portland’s Crystal Ballroom and Eugene’s McDonald Theatre.
Lotus announces special guest vocalists for the headline show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre this Saturday, September 17. Joining the band to perform songs off the latest album, Eat the Light, will be Denver’s Gabe Otto of Pan Astral (“Eats the Light”) and Rachel Eisenstat of Raven Jane (“Suntan”) as well as LA’s Oriel Poole (“Anti-Gravity”).
On Friday, July 15, jamtronica pioneers Lotus released their highly anticipated 13th studio album Eat The Light with North American tour dates to follow.
The album is unique in that for the first time, the instrumental-heavy band opted to focus their efforts on cultivating a specific aspect skill set; almost like a case study. For many long term fans, the news that the 10 track album will feature vocals on every track came as an upsetting surprise.
