Earlier this year, Brooklyn quintet Lucius released their highly anticipated debut album 'Wildewoman'. As the record was met with universal praise from fans and critics alike, the band took the road for their first ever UK headline tour. Now they announce their return to UK shores for a string of shows in August, which will include an appearance at Reading and Leeds Festival.
Their last visit to the UK was huge was met with a whirlwind of excitement - to accompany the release of 'Wildewoman' the band performed on the prestigious "Later With Jools Holland", went into session at 6 Music and toured their album across the UK, culminating in a sold out show at London's Oslo.
Currently touring across the US, Lucius are perfecting their live show in time for the summer. It is with great excitement that they return to the UK in August to play on the Festival Republic Stage at Reading and Leeds Festival, after a short string of UK shows which culminates in a show at London's Lexington on the 20th August as part of the AIM Independent Music Awards series of warm-up shows.
