Lord Huron was last in Australia for Bluesfest in 2016, and a sold-out run of headline dates to support the release of their break out album Strange Trails (2015) which included the hit single ‘The Night We Met’ as a feature in the Netflix show 13 Reasons Why.
Joining Lord Huron for main support at both Sydney and Melbourne shows is 19-year-old Albany-born singer-songwriter Carla Geneve, who 2017 bursting through the WA scene with her unique brand of brutally honest indie/folk and captivating live show, which saw Carla named as Pilerats’ One To Watch in 2018, triple j Unearthed feature artist, winning the inaugural Mojo Rising Band Competition, and taking out the Best Regional Act at the WAM Award.
Vide Noir was written and recorded over the past two years at Lord Huron’s Los Angeles studio and informal clubhouse, Whispering Pines, and was mixed by Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips / MGMT). Under The Radar, Mag have exclaimed:
“‘Vide Noir’ is easily the band’s most musically striking release to date.“

Singer, songwriter and producer Ben Schneider found inspiration wandering restlessly through his adopted home of LA at night:
“My nighttime drives ranged all over the city—across the twinkling grid of the valley, into the creeping shadows of the foothills, through downtown’s neon canyons and way out to the darksome ocean. I started imagining Vide Noir as an epic odyssey through the city, across dimensions, and out into the cosmos. A journey along the spectrum of human experience. A search for meaning amidst the cold indifference of The Universe,” he says.
As a true multi-media artist, Schneider has once again created an adorned world to inhabit within Vide Noir: the album will be accompanied by a wealth of imagery, films and immersive experiences crafted to expand upon its narratives and themes. This builds on Schneider’s past work, which used videos, a comic book, a choose-your-own-adventure hotline and assorted Easter eggs as means of deepening the listener experience.
Originally a musical and visual solo project by Michigan-native-turned-Angeleno Schneider, Lord Huron now includes members Mark Barry (percussion), Miguel Briseño (bass) and Tom Renaud (guitar). After a pair of independent EPs, Lord Huron released two full-length albums Lonesome Dreams (2012) and Strange Trails (2015).
