Dublin Rock Group Lluther Annouce Sophomore Album, 1st US Tour

Dublin rockers Lluther embark on their first US tour in support of "Rise of the Reptile King," the follow-up album to their highly acclaimed european debut, "Agent Of Empires." Lluther will tour the entire continental US in 2011.
April 12, 2011 - PRLog -- Lights Out! Show’s On! More than three years since the release of their highly acclaimed European debut, Dublin based rock group Lluther announced their first US tour, in support of their forthcoming album "Rise Of The Reptile King,” with this tweet: “First LLUTHER show in the USA and its on Paddy's Day! Lluther is ready, is Texas? They better get the Guinness in!” The tour kicked off at the GroundHall in Houston, TX this Saint Patrick's Day, 2011.    


Lluther was formed by Gerry Owens after the dissolution of his successful electro-rock group Skindive found him pushing for a new direction in music. Lluther was quickly signed by German heavy rock label Tiefdruck Music, and soon after released their debut album "Agents Of Empire" to overwhelming critical acclaim and a frenetic listener response that has only kept building. Since 2006, thanks to their sizable and ever-increasing fan base, Lluther has toured throughout Europe extensively, supporting major headliners and as a staple in the festival scene. In 2008, when the group amicably parted ways with Tiefdruck and signed with music giants EMI Publishing, a crackling current of inspiration, not unlike like a divine epiphany, charged through Lluther and sent the band back into the studio.

The end result, “Rise Of The Reptile King" is a self-contained renaissance; a concept album in the vein of David Bowie and Pink Floyd that pushes the boundaries of rock music. Lluther artfully explores the dark tale of a mysterious anti-hero and his spectacular rise, fall, then rise again, cunningly set against a supernatural landscape of circus performance, freak shows, and all things occult, profane and bizarre. Cracking through the modern indie-alt-noise-rock panorama, Lluther holds up a mirror of beautiful chaos in which everyone who listens can see a little bit of themselves. It is seductive and exciting, it is inspired and driven and more importantly, it is rock & roll and it is now.

Already finding a resonance with fans and music industry types alike, the buzz around the band and their new record appears to be catching on with haste. A handful of promotional singles sent to European rock stations last summer snagged gobbs of airtime, and one track, "In The Dollhouse," spent 4 weeks on the Virgin Rock Radio Airplay Top 20 in Italy alongside U2, Them Cooked Vultures & Depeche Mode. In the US, Lluther has successfully enlisted the full promotional support of LA's infamous SuicideGirls after their first guest appearance on the radio show in late January. The alt-rock pinup icons have made Lluther their new pet Rock&Roll cause and are even slated to star in the band’s next video, "Until She Comes,” set to be directed by the award winning Doug Freel.
