 “Roots Rock Delivered with Arcade Fire Like Grandeur.”- Los Angeles Times

“New found fans are falling in love at first listen with the band’s homespun acoustic folk and powerful lyrics.” - USA Today

Fresh out of Denver, The Lumineers have been subject of a fierce bidding war following their breakout success in the US.  Last week it was announced that Decca Records has licensed the forthcoming debut album from the independent Nashville-based label Dualtone.

The Lumineers have become a huge success story in the US, having sold over 150,000 copies of their debut album and 430,000 single downloads in less than four months through Dualtone.

The band are an enigmatic trio comprising of Brooklyn-to-Denver transplants Wesley Schultz, Jeremiah Fraites and Neyla Pekarek, and are currently at #1 on AAA radio in the US. The band’s incredible success has come  through touring and word of mouth while interest from international labels was triggered after a breath-taking performance at this year’s SXSW festival.

The Lumineers have a spine tingling emotive sound that is both classic and genuine. They are a raw and unique band with flavours of folk, alternative rock, Americana and indie creating a rustic and spell-binding edge. The bands video for their UK debut single ‘Ho Hey’ is like a reminiscent memoir, already claiming a phenomenal 3 million YouTube views to accompany its 380,000 single downloads.

Following a string of sold-out US tour dates the band will bring their critically acclaimed live show over to the UK this autumn where they will support fellow Nashville, Grammy Award winning duo, The Civil Wars.
