Son Lux have announced their fourth full-length album, Bones, out June 22nd via Glassnote Records (Chvrches, Mumford & Sons, Phoenix).
The first song off of the upcoming release, ‘Change Is Everything’ is now available to stream via soundcloud and YouTube after premiering on Les Inrocks (FRANCE) and Dummy Mag (UK) and NPR (USA).
Additionally, the band unveiled two headline tour dates, one in New York, June 9th at Bowery Ballroom and one in Los Angeles, July 9th at The El Rey Theatre, plus a series of intimate European pre-release shows in special venue.
The band is currently on the road with tUnE-yArDs for a US Southeast tour that kicked off in Asheville, NC on March 29th and ends in Houston, TX on April 10th.
Bones is a call to action, a document of personal and collective uprising. Themes of metamorphosis resonate in architectural, vivid sound.
Founded by producer-composer Ryan Lott in 2007, Son Lux “works at the nexus of several rarely-overlapping Venn Diagrams” (Pitchfork). With the recent additions to the band of guitarist-composer Rafiq Bhatia and drummer Ian Chang, Son Lux is now a ferocious trio both live and on record.
Bones is the first album documenting this new formation, and it draws from the three members' unique and omnivorous musical vernaculars. Few bands have built a more impressive and varied array of collaborators: Lorde, Beyoncé producer Boots, Sufjan Stevens, Matthew Dear, Busdriver, Vijay Iyer, Nico Muhly and Pulitzer Prize winner Caroline Shaw.
