‘Strange Trails is the perfectly-titled new album from BLURT faves Lord Huron, and it’s due April 6th through Play It Again Sam. It’s the follow-up to Lord Huron’s debut Lonesome Dreams, which gained widespread critical acclaim and acknowledgment in the year end ‘best ofs’ in 2012. (Go HERE to read the original BLURT review as it appeared on our 2012 wrapup.) Check out new track “Fool For Love”:
The new record was written and produced by frontman Ben Schneider and recorded at the band’s own Whispering Pines studio in Los Angeles. Strange Trails is billed as “an anthology of weird fiction.” Schneider explains, “There’s no direct narrative connection between the two albums. The stories here are separated by time, location and characters. Many of the themes have carried over and evolved.”
Originally a musical and visual solo project by Michigan-native-turned-Angeleno Schneider, members now include Mark Berry (percussion, vocals), Miguel Briseno (bass, percussion) and Tom Renaud (guitar, vocals). Tour dates will be announced shortly.
