The two-time Grammy-nominated folk rockers, The Lumineers, are taking big shots with their newest hit album "BRIGHTSIDE". The new record features new singles "A.M. Radio", "Big Shot", "Brightside", and "Where We Are". Following an extensive world tour in support of their new craft, The Lumineers just announced a string of encore tour dates this 2023, including CAMPING with The Lumineers & James Bay at Gorge Amphitheatre for three nights beginning September 7th.
"We’re stoked to be back on the road, playing a run of shows in the US later this year with our good friend @jamesbaymusic," the band wrote on Instagram.
As the band behind global hit singles "Ho Hey", "Stubborn Love", and "Ophelia", The Lumineers take their signature storytelling and depth of emotions to new heights in BRIGHTSIDE. "I’m headed for the Brightside, baby, tonight." the band declares in "REPRISE", one of The Lumineers' new tracks with astounding hooks and anthemic elements that gets fans hitting the replay button.
"We're just trying to capture some of the essence of what it feels like to be alive," the band told NPR. With tracks that ooze emotion that share a sense of reliability and introspection towards different topics, the band never fails to amaze with their live shows. Delivering eccentric energy with an astounding blend of intimate performances, The Lumineers is widely acclaimed for its stripped-down live performances.
"We like the idea of stripping things down to their bare bones and playing acoustic instruments," the band shared with Rolling Stone in an interview.
As Wesley Schultz and Jeremiah Fraites began writing songs and performing gigs in NYC, and an emcee mistakenly called them "Lumineers", the name stuck around and went on to become one of the world's most sought-after bands to exist. Scoring a record deal in 2009, the band released its self-titled debut album, featuring the global hit single "Ho Hey". Hitting #3 in the Hot 100 and a Platinum certification from the RIAA, The Lumineers soon found themselves at the center of mainstream attention.
The band followed up this success with their succeeding records which never failed to impress critics and fans alike. The band's notable hits and crowd-favorites include "Stubborn Heart", "Ophelia", "Cleopatra", "Sleep on the Floor", "Life in the City", and "Gloria".
In an interview with Fifteen Questions, "You need to feel those tears from another to be sure a song is done", Schultz shared. With an edge for songs that strike the heart, he shares that "there just needs to be some magnetism - some thread of emotion that gets stirred up by a melody or phrase that you stumble upon," when it comes to their songwriting process. With every track carefully crafted and inspired by raw human emotion, The Lumineers never fail to strike the feels.
