Lettuce Release Music Video for “Phyllis

New Album Crush Out Now

“Stuttering bass-and-drum interplay, furious guitars and organs — and nary a note to be found outside the pocket.”New York Times

As close to Lettuce’s live show as you can get on a studio album.” – Consequence of Sound

“Crush sees the band soaring to new heights and exploring new territory, all the while bringing the funk.” – Live for Live Music

Nationwide Tour Begins in January with

Two New Years Shows in Brooklyn

For more than two decades, Lettuce has brought a new vitality to classic funk, matching their smooth and soulful grooves with a hip-hop-inspired urgency and mastery of beat. Their fourth studio album Crush is out now and the band has now released the first music video from the record for the single “Phyllis”. Having premiered on Yahoo! Music, the video is a psychedelic feast for the eyes and ears. It is available to watch and share via YouTube.

On Crush, drummer Adam Deitch, guitarists Adam Smirnoff and Eric Krasno, bassist Erick “Jesus” Coomes, keyboardist Neal Evans, saxophonist Ryan Zoidis, and trumpet players Eric Bloom and Rashawn Ross deepen the band’s signature sound by channeling the sonic freedom and infectious energy of their incendiary live show.

 

 

Produced by Lettuce and recorded/mixed by Joel Hamilton at Brooklyn’s Studio G, Crushfirst came to life on the road, with the band developing new material and testing it out live as they toured. The follow-up to 2012’s Fly, Crush finds Lettuce brilliantly infusing their psychedelic and hip-hop sensibilities into bass-heavy funk. Featuring guest vocalists Alecia Chakour and Nigel Hall, the record is an exploration of boundaries within the genre.

In recent years, Lettuce have watched their fanbase expand as they’ve hit bigger and bigger stages and earned their name as a can’t-miss festival act. And in making Crush, the band had no trouble harnessing the spirit of their explosive live show. So while Crush offers everything from all-out party jams to headphone-ready journeys into space funk, each track was born from an unabashed joy and love of live performance. Lettuce will be performing that live show for two nights at The Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn, NY on January 1 and 2, 2016. These shows will kick off their nationwide winter tour and there’s a full list of those dates below.

“That energy we get when it’s prime time and we’re about to go onstage and we’re just excited beyond belief—that all came out on this new album,” says Deitch. “There’s a feeling that the band is rising, and it’s a really beautiful thing.”
