Lord Huron Supporting Alt-J On Fall Tour

Critically acclaimed LA-based band Lord Huron are set to support Alt-J on their fall run beginning in September. After their first successful U.K. run, various sold out shows nationwide, and festival appearances at SXSW and Coachella among others, the band will continue to tour throughout the year, including special performances at Bonnaroo, Firefly Festival, and Newport Folk Festival. Of Lord Huron’s live set,

 Originally a musical and visual solo project by lead singer and Michigan native-turned-Angeleno Ben Schneider, collaborators now include Mark Barry (percussion, vocals), Miguel Briseno (bass, percussion), and Tom Renaud (guitar, vocals). Schneider started playing music as a child—most often on summer nights around the campfire on Lake Huron. He went on to study art in college and lived in France and New York before moving to Los Angeles in 2005 to pursue a career in the visual arts. Schneider’s passion for art and music are often intertwined, and he has composed music for various visual art projects over the years. His work is continually inspired by his outdoor explorations, landscape and water in particular. In 2010, Schneider self-released his first EP, Into the Sun, online, complete with original artwork. The songs gained traction and Schneider set to work recruiting musicians to help him translate the recordings into a live performance.
