LOTUS ANNOUNCE HUGE FALL TOUR

THE BAND RELEASES A PAIR OF EPs:

FEATHER ON WOOD AND OIL ON GLASS

For those waiting for a concert experience with the dynamics of a rock band, the dance inducing rhythms of club music, and the sophistication of modern electronica, an unlikely musical alternative has arrived in the form of the band Lotus. Formed at a Mennonite college that had banned on-campus dancing as late as the 1980's, Lotus brings their club-worthy beats and rocking instrumental anthems to theaters throughout the country this fall. No glow-stick bracelets, pretentious Can trivia, or expensive distressed fashion required.

This fall the band is embarking on its most ambitious tour with over 40 dates in the US and Japan including their ground breaking announcement of eight 'Pay What You Want" concerts in the Western US. To coincide with this massive tour, the band is releasing two new EP's on October 6th: Feather on Wood and Oil on Glass. The material on both Feather on Wood and Oil on Glass can be directly traced back to Lotus’ 2008 full-length release, Hammerstrike. A number of songs were recorded that didn't find their way onto Hammerstrike (either they hadn't been finished by deadlines or they weren't coalescing with the sound of that project), but after finishing the album, Lotus decided to revisit these tracks, and the results are extraordinary. Feather on Wood is sunnier with a laid-back vibe, yet not afraid of big rock beauty, while Oil on Glass is darker in character, with more head-nodding tempos.

What critics have been saying about Lotus:

“… simultaneously making waves on the jam, indie and electronic scenes thanks to a series of well-crafted albums.†- Relix

“Lotus continue to expand upon its post-everything rock/electronic/jazz/free-form pastiche.â€

- Big Shot Magazine

“…intent on creating a new genre (few try that these days)...it is rock, and smart disco, funk and soul, piano pop, world music, and modern alienation stuff and jazz fusion you can dance to all wrapped up in cellophane.†-Big Takeover
