"For the L.A. band Lord Huron, there's far more to music than merely playing sweetly summery, rhythmically inventive pop. There's also an air of mystery: a desire to tell stories, play with identities and craft visuals to complement its sounds."-NPR

"Lord Huron's music is so impressionistic, it sometimes sounds like it emanates from a dream."
-Boston Globe

Strange Trails, the highly anticipated new album from Lord Huron, will be released April 7 via IAMSOUND Records. Strange Trails is the follow up to Lord Huron's breakout debut Lonesome Dreams, which received widespread critical acclaim and was included in various 2012 "Best Of" lists.

The record's lead single "Fool for Love" is featured on NPR's "All Songs Considered: New Mix" podcast [insert link], and premiered on various public radio platforms nationwide including KCRW, KEXP, WRLT, KCMP and SiriusXM's Spectrum among others. The song can be streamed/shared here: The album is also available for pre-order now with a free download of the single and "The Night We Met": See below for full track listing. Lord Huron will perform the new music on a nationwide tour this spring, with support from Leon Bridges, Hamilton Leithauser and Family Of The Year on select dates. All tour dates are listed below.

The new record was written and produced by frontman Ben Schneider and recorded at the band's own Whispering Pines studio in Los Angeles. Strange Trails is an anthology of weird fiction-a new collection of tales from the world introduced on Lonesome Dreams. Schneider explains, "There's no direct narrative connection between the two albums. The stories here are separated by time, location and characters. Many of the themes have carried over and evolved."

Originally a musical and visual solo project by Michigan-native-turned-Angeleno Schneider, members now include Mark Barry (percussion, vocals), Miguel Briseno (bass, percussion) and Tom Renaud (guitar, vocals). After a pair of EPs, their debut album Lonesome Dreams was released in 2012, followed by extensive touring both stateside and abroad, as well as appearances at major festivals including Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Firefly Music Festival, Newport Folk Festival and more.
