Lord Huron is a musical and visual project created by Ben Schneider. Originally a solo project, collaborators now include Mark Barry (percussion, vocals), Miguel Briseno (bass, percussion) and Tom Renaud (guitar, vocals).
The band toured heavily in 2011, continuing to develop the live show.
They played across the country, including performances at South by
Southwest, Outside Lands and Lollapalooza. Mark Barry and Tom Renaud,
childhood friends of Schneider, moved to Los Angeles to join Lord Huron,
while Miguel Briseno also originally hails from Michigan. The band has
worked hard to recreate the densely layered recordings in the live
setting. Barry was principal in this effort, particularly early on as
the band was still forming. He plays several instruments during the
course of a performance (often at the same time) and is a guiding force
in the arrangement of the show.
In January 2012, Lord Huron signed with independent label, IAMSOUND Records. The first full-length album from Lord Huron, Lonesome Dreams was released in September 2012. The band comes to Royale Boston for a show on February 4, doors open at 8pm and the concert begins at 9pm.
