The Lumineers announce iTunes festival date

The Lumineers announce iTunes festival date

The Lumineers are pleased to announce they will be headlining one of this year’s iTunes Festival shows at the Roundhouse in London on Tuesday 3rd September. The performance comes the day after the release of their new single ‘Submarines’, from their Platinum (300k)-selling debut album, out on 2nd September.

The band have been playing to adoring crowds at Glastonbury’s Other Stage (at which they clambered into the audience to perform amongst their fans), and T in the Park. The Lumineers are set to make their way to Belfast’s Belsonic Festival, Reading and Leeds later this month, and then to London for the iTunes festival on 3rd September.

Frontman Wesley Schultz said: “We’ve heard nothing but great things about the Roundhouse and the overall iTunes Festival experience. We look forward to hearing the fans sing along and seeing the venue we’ve heard so much about.”

To see them live is to see the band, led by Schultz, at its very best. The demand for tickets in the UK has been astonishing; graduating from Hoxton Bar and Grill to KOKO, then Shepherd’s Bush Empire and two consecutive nights at Brixton Academy, followed by a sold out UK tour. The band will be back in November for another UK Tour. Details to be announced soon.

Another highlight this year was The Lumineers’ performance at the legendary Grammy Awards 2013, at which they were nominated for both “Best New Artist” and “Best Americana Album.“

The band’s numerous performances and nominations cement what has been a phenomenal year for the Denver five-piece who have sold over 2 million copies of their debut self-titled album globally and over 3.5 million single downloads of their debut single ‘Ho Hey’. In the UK, the album has hit the 300,000 mark, reaching an official chart high at #8, while  ‘Ho Hey’ is also certified Platinum. Both the album and single have been fluctuating in the UK iTunes top 10 since release last year with sales increasing week on week.  

New single ‘Submarines’ offers yet another small-but-perfectly-formed hit, starting with a simple piano hook and building throughout, until it leaves you wanting more.
