PREMIERES NEW ALBUM
OUT OF THE WASTELAND
ON PANDORA TODAY – OUT MAY 26TH
“Jason Wade, Lifehouse’s lead singer, has always been a sturdy purveyor of melody…” – New York Times
“Tracks like ‘Hurricane’ show Lifehouse at their most engaging, paving the way for Out of the Wasteland to be remembered as their biggest and best yet.” – Artist Direct
“…it’s refreshing to see a band ignore everything else and simply be the best them that they can be, putting their true fans, the ones that have stuck with them for over a decade, first.” – BlackBook
Los Angeles, CA – May 19, 2015 – Multi-platinum alt-rock band Lifehouse premiere their new album
Out of the Wasteland, today exclusively on Pandora Premieres. PRESS HERE to stream the album in full now before it is released on May 26th via Ironworks Records/Kobalt Label Services. The album is currently available for pre-order on iTunes featuring two exclusive tracks. Fans who pre-order the album on iTunes will receive instant downloads of “Hurricane,” “Flight” and “Wish,” PRESS HERE.
“There was a kind of unlearning with this album,” says Lifehouse’s Jason Wade. “We wanted to retrace our steps back to the beginning and really find the innocence, that feeling of being 17-year-old kids who get excited about playing in the garage.”
In addition to iTunes, fans can also pre-order Out of the Wasteland on Amazon and Google Play. It will also be available at all retail in the US with an exclusive deluxe version available at Target and Target.com that will include four bonus tracks.
Billboard.com first gave fans a taste of the upcoming album with lead single “Hurricane,” PRESS HERE to listen. Out of the Wasteland captures the sound of a band going through a rebirth and finding the freedom that comes after a period of transition and regeneration. Whether it is the tender track “Central Park,” “Wish” or songs like “Yesterday’s Son” and “Hurt This Way” that feel to be a continuation from their last album, Out of the Wasteland reflects the range that Lifehouse is capable of today. Also on several songs, including the harmony-heavy track “Hourglass,” Wade got to fulfill a musical fantasy and work with legendary movie score composer James Newton Howard to create more expansive string arrangements.
Out of the Wasteland is the work of a group that has some history. Los Angeles-based Lifehouse broke through in a big way when “Hanging by a Moment,” from their debut album No Name Face, spent 20 weeks in the Top Ten and won a Billboard Music Award for “Hot 100 Single of the Year.” Since then, the band has released five more albums, sold over 15 million records worldwide and spun off such hit singles as “You and Me,” “First Time,” and “Whatever it Takes.” Lifehouse is one of the most played artists in the history of Hot AC with 1.5 million spins and over 1.6 Billion Pandora Plays to date.
