Lotus’ New Studio Album Due in February
Lotus will release their new studio album Build on February 19 via SCI Fidelity Records. The ten-track album boasts a mix of vintage, analog sounds and beat-heavy electronic music.
The album features Louts’ current lineup of Mike Greenfield (drums), Jesse Miller (bass, sampler), Luke Miller (guitar, keys), Mike Rempel (guitar) and Chuck Morris (percussion).
“This album was recorded live to analog tape in studios in Philadelphia and St. Louis,” explains Luke Miller. “We used live drums, guitar, bass, Hammond organ, upright piano, analog synths, live percussion, and live horns from the group Rubblebucket, then peppered in electronic elements. The project was mixed through an analog process to give it a deep richness.”
The album’s first single, “Massif,” is now streaming on SoundCloud. As previously reported, Luke Miller will debut his Luke the Knife project in Colorado this week. Lotus will kick off their New Year’s run at Chicago, IL’s Riviera Theatre on December 27.
