Lucid at Ortlieb’s
PLATTSBURGH, NEW YORK – May 1st 2015 – RuLucid? It’s a familiar tag for music lovers who travel throughout the Adirondack roadways of the North Country, and along Lucid’s regularly routed trail throughout New England and New York. After over a decade playing together as Lucid, they’re returning to the road along with the release of their fourth studio album, Dirt.
Touted as “the hardest working band in the North Country”, these guys pack in around a hundred shows a year. In addition to touring, Lucid is host band to the annual upstate music festival Backwoods Pondfest. The festival is entering its ninth consecutive year, taking place again in Peru, New York, just west of Lake Champlain.
Backwoods Pondfest returns to Twin Ponds Campsite August 7th and 8th 2015, and will be home for the weekend to a couple thousand fans from all over the northeast.
“We’re just excited to get a little time on the road before the festival season starts,” said vocalist and percussionist Lowell Wurster. “Our summer is as packed as it’s ever been, with festivals all over the northeast… But as soon as the fall comes we’ll be back out there touring again.” Lucid’s anticipated fall tour will also probably be in tandem with the release of yet a fifth studio album.
Lucid’s Dirt will be available on Spotify, Last FM, iTunes, Amazon and all of your other favorite online distribution sites. You can catch them live in venues starting in upstate New York at Rock N Roll Resort on May 1st, right on down through North Carolina throughout the beginning of May.
