Lotus sets off on their fall tour this October, playing some of the country’s finest clubs and theaters. Joining them will be Mux Mool, as well as a host of local electronic artists/ DJs to feature the homegrown talent in each city.
The band’s epic light show and pounding beats may be club inspired, but their ability to connect with the audience through emotive composition and dynamic improvisation pushes performances past the elusive barrier dividing concert and experience. The swelling beats of a non-stop dance party, the soaring guitar and the melodic triumphs of a cathartic rock experience are the elements of the live instrumental dance rock of Lotus. Sending huge crowds into a sweat-drenched euphoria at festivals such as Bonnaroo, Ultra, Rothbury, Nocturnal, All Good and Nateva, the band has become a sought after late-night act.
The album Hammerstrike and the two follow-up EPs, Oil on Glass/Feather on Wood, show the multiple sides of Lotus. Slow building, guitar driven compositions are complimented by music leaning toward harder beats and electronic textures and work together to form a cohesive whole. Always pushing forward, the band has been writing, performing and recording new music throughout the year developing new sounds and expanding their unique musical voice.
The tour kicks off in Baltimore at the Bourbon Street Ballroom on October 2nd, and includes a two-night run in Denver, with the first show in the more intimate setting of the Gothic Theater before a co-bill with Infected Mushroom at the Fillmore Auditorium.  The band is currently finishing up the summer with performances at festivals through the beginning of September.
