One of the biggest word of mouth successes of the year, Western pop conquistadors Lord Huron return to British shores this August for new dates after this month’s sold-out show at London’s Scala. The Michigan band, whose debut album Lonesome Dreams – a joyous collision of Appalachian percussion, rustic guitars and sumptuous harmonies lit up by lens-flare flashes of electronics – has won them rave reviews, play the following shows later this summer:
Saturday 17 August – Green Man Festival, Brecon Beacons, Wales
Sunday 18 August – Whelan’s, Dublin, Ireland
Monday 19 August – Goat’s Toe, Bangor
The band have also been invited to tour with Mercury Music Prize winners Alt-J in their US homeland.
