The Lumineers announced for Big Day Out 2014
Good news for fans of US indie folk trio The Lumineers: the band have been announced for the 2014 Big Day Out.
It’s been a massive year for the Denver based outfit, with more than 1.5 million albums sold to date globally, two Grammy nominations and a world tour, including completely sold out Australian dates. Next year, The Lumineers will return to these shores, joining one of the strongest Big Day Out line-ups in years.
The band has only come to global attention in 2012 with the release of ‘The Lumineers’ and its smash single, “Ho Hey”, which has topped both the Billboard Rock and Alternative charts in the States and has over 83+ million YouTube views. But despite their new-found success, The Lumineers are anything but an overnight sensation. Indeed, years of graft and toil have gone into establishing the trio’s distinctive Americana aesthetic, a sound as alluring as it is uncomplicated.
On 6th Sept Inertia/Dualtone will be releasing a deluxe edition of The Lumineers’ self-titled album, complete with five bonus tracks, a 28-page photo booklet and a 25-minute DVD of behind-the-scenes footage, backstage interviews and music videos.
