The first single off the new release, “Time to Run” recently premiered on Pitchfork and the video for the track premiered on NPR Music. Lord Huron toured extensively throughout 2011, including stops at SXSW, Outside Lands and Lollapalooza, while continuing to develop their live performances. The band is currently on a national tour that concludes in Los Angeles on November 2nd at The Echo. Full tour dates are below.

Lord Huron is a musical and visual project created by lead-singer and Michigan native-turned-Angeleno Ben Schneider. Originally a solo project by Schneider under the alter ego Lord Huron, collaborators now include Mark Barry (percussion, vocals), Miguel Briseno (bass, percussion), Brett Farkas (guitar, vocals) and Tom Renaud (guitar, vocals). Lonesome Dreams follows the band’s 2010 release of The Mighty EP, which was met with praise by NPR, Pitchfork, and The Los Angeles Times.
