Lord Huron’s quiet ascension to the lo-fi brotherhood with first full album
The story of Lord Huron rings as quaint as the band’s name itself. It all started when a navyman looked to an acoustic guitar to pass the time on his ship. Years later, his son would take to the instrument at campfires on Lake Huron. Over time, recreation made way for vocation as Ben Schneider pursued the arts in college and beyond.
But it wasn’t until Schneider took a trip home to Michigan in 2010 that Lord Huron came into focus as we know it today. Two sequential EP’s in 2010 and 2011, both chock-full of reverb and dream-inducing percussion, seem to have acted as baiting precursors for what’s coming. Lonesome Dreams will be Lord Huron’s first full release on October 9th through IAMSOUND Records. Until then, the three tracks off the album released this summer, “Time to Run,” “Brothers,” and “Ends of the Earth,” will have to tide us over.
The band, on the other hand, won’t be waiting in quiet anticipation of its upcoming release. Lord Huron continues to make its rounds from Mid to East to West, squeezing twenty-five shows in by November 2nd.
