St. Lucia @ Ogden Theatre PREVIEW
(Columbia Records; New York, New York, June 1, 2016) – St. Lucia, in partnership with Converse, has revealed the official video for “Help Me Run Away” – the latest single from their sophomore album Matter. Incorporating a combination of 2D and 3D compositing, mixed with practical puppeteering and CG elements, the video (directed by NORTON) follows a pair of Converse high tops across the U.S. in search of their lost love (a pair of red high heels). Watch here: http://smarturl.it/HMRAvideo. “Help Me Run Away” is available now on all DSPs including iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon and Google Play.
Later this month, St. Lucia will make their debut morning television appearance. Tune in to see the band perform live on Good Morning America Thursday, June 30th.
As previously announced, St. Lucia will embark on a fall headline tour that will feature new songs and production in their largest venues to date: The Wiltern in Los Angeles, Terminal 5 in NYC, and House Of Blues in Boston. A second show at NYC’s Terminal 5 has been added due to high demand. Tickets for this show are available for pre-sale today at 10am ET with password HELPME; all tickets will be on-sale Friday at 12pm ET. For more information and tickets, visit www.StLuciaNewYork.com.
See the full list of dates below, more dates to be announced in the coming weeks.
St. Lucia also has a slew of festivals on tap this summer. The band is slated to play prominent sets at Bonnaroo (June 10-12), Firefly (Jun. 17-19), Lollapalooza (Jul. 28-31), Osheaga (Jul. 29-31), Outside Lands (Aug. 5-7), Bumbershoot (Sep. 2-4) and Austin City Limits (Sep. 30 – Oct. 2).
Released in late January, Matter (the follow-up to St. Lucia’s 2013 album When The Night) has been universally praised, with Rolling Stone drawing comparisons to ‘Prince at his purplest,’ Entertainment Weekly hailing it as ‘the indie dance party album of the year,’ and NYLON citing the 2016 release as ‘a bold new direction for the band.’ St. Lucia’s fusion of catchy synths, hook-laden verses and unabashed power pop caught the attention of KCRW’s Jason Bentley who recently said on an episode of Morning Becomes Eclectic, “this should be the biggest band in the world right now.”
