Lumerians Announce Debut Album 'The High Frontier' Released On June 10th 2013

With UK shows in Sheffield and London over the next couple of days, psych-smiths LUMERIANS have uploaded a new live video.
 
The clip gives a taste of what to expect from their intense live shows & showcases one of the band's older tracks from their previous EP 'Horizon Structures'.

Lumerians' full force debut album 'The High Frontier' is released on June 10th through Partisan and sees them push the edges of stoner rock, combining afrobeat influences, psychadelia song structures, post-punk guitars, starry dramatics, brash dance beats and vivid imagery to create a record that both dazzles & invigorates.
 
It's a cacophony of sound in which Lumerians acknowledge the role noise and rhythm has always played in transcendent and ecstatic rituals the world over. From the repetitious drums of tribal animists to the penetrating electronic pulses of neon dance clubs, The High Frontier sets scope outward, points blindfolded at a star map and sets off full blast without making course corrections.
 
The six tracks and 33 minutes that make up The High Frontier were recorded and produced in Lumerians' self-built studio/brewery: a room housed in a converted store-front church in a neighbourhood affectionately referred to as the "Murder Dubbs".
 
Lumerians is Tyler Green, Chris Musgrave, Jason Miller and Marc Melzer. Formed in early 2006 while most of the members were working at an experimental music label in San Francisco, their shared affinity for Krautrock and esoteric occult mythologies resulted in after-work jam sessions and recording.
 
After self-releasing their debut EP in 2008, they signed to Knitting Factory Records in 2011 for their debut LP release Transmalinnia - a record which, during the two years it took to record, was almost entirely scrapped and re-recorded several times. In 2012 supplementary small-pressing instrumental records Transmissions from Telos Vol. IV and The Weaning and the Dreaming quickly sold out in the hands of collectors.
 
Now in 2013, with a wealth of live experience with the likes of Wire, Killing Joke, Butthole Surfers, BEAK> and more under their belt, it's time for Lumerians' first proper UK release.
