Lord Huron Announce More UK Dates Plus Main Support To Alt-j For September 2013 Us Tour

One of the biggest word of mouth successes of the year, Western pop conquistadors Lord Huron return to British shores this August for new dates after this month's sold-out show at London's Scala. The Michigan band, whose debut album Lonesome Dreams - a joyous collision of Appalachian percussion, rustic guitars and sumptuous harmonies lit up by lens-flare flashes of electronics - has won them rave reviews, play the following shows later this summer:

Saturday 17 August - Green Man Festival, Brecon Beacons, Wales
Sunday 18 August - Whelan's, Dublin, Ireland
Monday 19 August - Goat's Toe, Bangor

The  band have also been invited to tour with Mercury Music Prize winners Alt-J in their US homeland

Described as "a mysterious, powerful force" by LA Weekly, the band have also been invited to tour with Mercury Music Prize winners Alt-J in their US homeland in September and their live shows brings to life the effervescent noises of Lonesome Dreams, an album as vast and easy to lose yourself in as a Sergio Leone cinescape. Inspired by the rust coloured canyons and characters of the Wild West (with the emphasis on wild), the record also encompasses short films, intriguing artwork and a series of imagined novels by a fictional ageing wordsmith, the mysterious George Ranger Johnson. "I'm interested in creating a world with its own mythology," says the Michigan native. "I look at different media as ways to enrich the story."

Lord Huron began as a solo endeavour in 2010 but Schneider has since enlisted some of his "best amigos" to turn his songs into a powerful live experience: Mark Barry (percussion, vocals), Miguel Briseno (bass, percussion), Brett Farkas (guitar, vocals) and Tom Renaud (guitar, vocals). "We've got a pretty good working relationship," he says. "A good wrestling match can solve almost anything we disagree about." Here's something pretty much everyone can agree on - with their sprawling cinematic sound coming to even more UK venues this summer, it's looking like a blockbuster summer for Lord Huron.
