Lotus to Release _ The Strength of Weak Ties _ on April 4
On April 4, Lotus will release its next studio album, _ The Strength of Weak Ties _, on Harmonized records. In addition to the groups trademark blend of rock, electronica, jazz, funk, and world music, The Strength of Weak Ties will include a number of vocal cuts, a departure from the groups instrumental live show. Musically, we wanted this album to contrast raw and dirty sounds like guitar feedback, roomy sounding drums, with obviously electronic sounds like drum machines, and analog synths, says Luke Miller. We worked to give it a loose yet tight feel; have the details of a headphone trip, but still rock out. As previously reported, Lotus will perform at the Langerado Festival in March, before embarking on an extensive tour on April 4 at Lancaster, PAs Chameleon Club.
