Following the release of the highly anticipated album Vide Noir on Friday 20 April, Lord Huron announces a headline show in Melbourne, with support from Carla Geneve.
The LA-based band returns to Australia to play Melbourne Recital Centre on Wednesday July 18, before heading to Byron Bay for Splendour in the Grass.
Lord Huron last toured Australia for Bluesfest in 2016, and a run of sold-out headline dates supporting the release of break out album Strange Trails (2015) which included the hit single ‘The Night We Met’ as featured in the Netflix show 13 Reasons Why.
Joining Lord Huron for support is 19-year-old Albany-born singer/songwriter Carla Geneve, who in 2017 burst through the W.A. scene with her unique brand of brutally honest indie/folk and captivating live show, which saw Carla named as Pilerats’ ‘One To Watch in 2018’, triple j unearthed feature artist, winning the inaugural Mojo Rising Band Competition, and the Best Regional Act at the WAM Awards.
Vide Noir was written and recorded over the past two years at Lord Huron’s Los Angeles studio and informal clubhouse, Whispering Pines, and was mixed by Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips/MGMT). In conjunction with the album announcement, the band released ‘Ancient Names (Part I)’ and ‘Ancient Names (Part II)’, which received critical praise from NPR Music and SPIN who called them, ‘An eerie, unresolved tale of a crystal ball vision that amplifies the band’s characteristic thematic darkness into distorted garage rock.’
Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre by arrangement with Handsome Tours.
