Lord Huron Releases New Music Video, Tour Dates

Posted on the 11 October 2011 by Thewildhoneypie @thewildhoneypie


As a full-time student at the University of Michigan and a long-time resident of Los Angeles, I cannot help but feel a strange and satisfying connection to LA-based, Michigan-born indie folk-pop project, Lord Huron (@lordhuron). Frontman Ben Schneider has the innate ability to blend the cheerful spirit of both regions through mesmerizing echoes, lively percussion, and stunning harmonies. The group’s new music video “Mighty” appropriately encapsulates this wild and free atmosphere, pairing the track’s tropical soundscape with images of exotic animals and bouncing waves.

While the band’s magnetism and charm are well-conveyed through this video, their live show has also been praised for being highly engaging. This week, Lord Huron announced a slew of upcoming tour dates with none other than our favorite New Orleans rock band, Givers.  They will be kicking off the tour in North Carolina, continuing on to New York later this month to play the CMJ Music Marathon.  See all their tour dates below.
