St. Lucia has announced a fall U.S. headline tour in support of their acclaimed sophomore album Matter. Today, the band also premiered a special live video for their current single “Help Me Run Away” – watch here: http://smarturl.it/HelpMeRunAwayVideo.
Following the band’s sold out spring tour, the highly-anticipated fall run will feature new songs and production in the band’s largest venues to date: The Wiltern in Los Angeles, Terminal 5 in NYC, and House Of Blues in Boston. Fan presale starts at 10am local on Wednesday May 11th (password: helpme), public onsale begins Friday May 13th at 10am local. Tickets are available at www.StLuciaNewYork.com.
See the full list of dates below, more dates to be announced in the coming weeks.
St. Lucia also has a slew of festivals on tap this summer. The band is slated to play prominent sets at Bonnaroo (June 10-12), Firefly (Jun. 17-19), Lollapalooza (Jul. 28-31), Osheaga (Jul. 29-31), Outside Lands (Aug. 5-7), Bumbershoot (Sep. 2-4) and Austin City Limits (Sep. 30 – Oct. 2).
Released in late January, Matter (the follow-up to St. Lucia’s 2013 album When The Night) has been universally praised, with Rolling Stone drawing comparisons to ‘Prince at his purplest,’ Entertainment Weekly hailing it as ‘the indie dance party album of the year,’ and NYLON citing the 2016 release as ‘a bold new direction for the band.’ St. Lucia’s fusion of catchy synths, hook-laden verses and unabashed power pop caught the attention of KCRW’s Jason Bentley who recently said on an episode of Morning Becomes Eclectic, “this should be the biggest band in the world right now.”
