The Lucid Dream play their first Irish shows ahead of the release of their highly anticipated debut album ’Songs Of Lies and Deceit’
The Lucid Dream were formed in Carlisle, Cumbria, in 2008. On the back of ‘Erbistock Mill’ EP, and 3 sold-out 7″ single releases (‘Love In My Veins’ ‘Heartbreak Girl’ ‘Hits Me Like I’m Stoned’), the band have gained acclaim from the likes of NME, Q, Frank Skinner (Absolute Radio), Steve Lamacq (BBC Radio 2 ‘Listeners Tip of the Week’), and major support from BBC 6 Music (Nemone ‘Record of the Weekend’, Lauren Laverne, Gideon Coe, Tom Robinson).
Most recently, the band were selected as full UK tour support to A Place To Bury Strangers, and followed this up by supporting Death In Vegas. This was on the back of supports to Spectrum, Crocodiles, Captain Beefheart’s ‘The Magic Band’, and The Aliens, to name a few. The Lucid Dream have also established themselves as a live force across Europe, with shows in Belgium, France, Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Portugal and Italy.
The long-awaited debut album, ‘Songs Of Lies and Deceit’, will be released on 1st July 2013 (on CD/download via Holy Are You Recordings, and on limited vinyl via The Great Pop Supplement, who have released the likes of Wooden Shjips, Martin Rev (Suicide), Spacemen 3, Spectrum).
