After a two year break from touring with their “Strange Tales” album Michigan based indie rock sensations Lord Huron made it back to Philadelphia Tuesday evening. In support of their latest offering “Vide Noir” the band took to the stage of The Electric Factory. One of Philadelphia’s most storied and historic venues, was completely SOLD OUT wall to wall.
The band has such a unique sound unlike any other act today. Coupled with deep, lyrical content founder and singer Ben Schneider tells stories of growing up spending lots of time camping on the shores of Michigan’s Lake Huron. There are often tales of spirits and the unknown sights or noises.
Tonight the band played their recent release Vide Noir in its entirety while mixing in hits from their previous two albums. Beginning the set with Ancient Names I, which brought on a strobe and laser show, Ben next went to one of the band’s most popular hits “Meet Me in the Woods”. Other hits scattered throughout the 19 song setlist (not including a 2 song encore) were Ends of the Earth, Frozen Pines and The World Ender.
Following a large applause from the audience and chants of “one more song”, the band returned to the stage to play another hit “The Night We Met” which was followed by “We Went Wild”. This brought a wonderful night to a close. Lord Huron is on a nationwide tour which runs through earl October. This one is another can’t miss!
