Lucius’ highly-anticipated new album Good Grief will be released March 11 via Play It Again Sam. “Born Again Teen,” the first song to be revealed, was a World Record on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Radio show yesterday.

A rush of thrillingly anarchic yet meticulously constructed pop, complete with clangourous rhythmic pulse, distorted doo wop harmonies, mutated riffs and stealthily addictive hooks –  ‘Born Again’ is Lucius coming back bigger than ever.

Of Good Grief, vocalist Jess Wolfe says, “When we started writing for this record, we had been away from home for nearly two years. We had just returned from tour, having gone through such varied emotions—loneliness, sadness and exhaustion alongside excitement, fulfilment and some of the most joyful moments in our lives…Whenever one of us had an idea or a feeling, the other was already a witness to it and could help navigate through it—for the two of us, this usually came in song form.” Vocalist Holly Laessig adds, “…When considering titles, we wanted to be sure to acknowledge any serious subject matter, while simultaneously allowing ourselves a comic sigh of relief from any personal turmoil. Ha! The yin and yang of the record naturally unveiled itself and, so, Good Grief.”

 

Good Grief was produced by Shawn Everett (The Alabama Shakes, Weezer) and Lucius with Bob Ezrin.  The album was mixed by Tom Elmhirst (Adele, Beck). The new music follows the band’s critically acclaimed debut album, Wildewoman, The New York Times praised the record for its “luscious, luminous, lilting lullabies,” and the album was incorporated in various 2013 year end lists including, Rolling Stone, NPR and Paste.

 

The band is lead by its co-founders and vocalists Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig accompanied by multi-instrumentalists Andrew Burri, Peter Lalish and Dan Molad. Wolfe and Laessig met in 2005 while attending Berklee College of Music. Since forming, Lucius has toured extensively, playing headline shows worldwide, as well as major festival appearances including Reading and Leeds, Bonnaroo, End Of the Road, Lollapalooza, Pukklepop and Rock En Seine.
