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.

Lotus announces the July 15th release date of the new studio album, Eat the Light. It’s a first for Lotus, an album with vocals on every song.

Tightly produced yet raw grooves recall sounds of The Talking Heads, Jamiroquai, and LCD Soundsystem.
