Lucius Doubles Your Pop Pleasure With ‘Second Nature,’ With Help From Brandi Carlile and Dave Cobb

They're back in front after collaborating with Roger Waters, the War on Drugs, Harry Styles and others. Co-producer Brandi Carlile modestly proclaims: "I do think it’s the best pop record of the last 20 years.”

Lucius Variety Facetime

Even if the band name Lucius doesn’t ring a bell, chances are you’ve seen frontwomen Holly Laessig and Jess Wolfe at some point — guesting with someone else, if not out on their own — and asked, “Who are those two identical-twin singers… who are not actually identical, but close enough for rock ‘n’ roll?” The two women have forged a strong visual as well as musical identity by singing in perfect unison as well as dressing and styling alike.

They’re certainly known, as a visual reference if not a proper name, to anyone who saw them prominently featured on Roger Waters ’ 157-date “Us + Them” tour in 2017-18, and to many who’ve caught their featured appearances live or on record with the War on Drugs, Harry Styles, Sheryl Crow, Ozzy Osbourne and Mavis Staples, among others. And their audience for their own music is substantial, although it’s been a while since they properly cultivated it touring behind “Wildewoman” (2013), “Good Grief” (2016) or the semi-acoustic placeholder “Nudes” (2018). But with “Second Nature,” their first album of all-new material in six years, they’re no longer 20 feet or even a couple of yards from stardom, but reclaiming the spotlight for themselves.

Brandi Carlile and Dave Cobb co-produced it in Nashville’s RCA Studio Studio B — facts that may well steer you toward thinking “Second Nature” might be an Americana-leaning record. Consider yourself wrongly steered, in that case.

Popular on Variety

Carlile tells Variety : “We all decided to do this at Girls Just Wanna Weekend [in 2019]. Dave and me were watching them on the balcony when I was getting my makeup done for my set, and he goes, ‘That is the best band that not enough people know about.’ And I was like, I know! And he goes, ‘They need to make an ABBA record, and they need some Bee Gees.’ And I was like, [skeptically] ‘Interesting … not being super-familiar with that concept musically, and also being such a fan of theirs that I didn’t think that they needed to do anything different. You know, I loved ‘Wildewoman’ and ‘Good Grief,’ and when ‘Nudes’ came out, I heard some potential for Americana on that one.”

Carlile continues, “But then I got to thinking about it, and I’m like, ‘Dave’s absolutely right.’ And when we actually got in the studio with the band, there were elements of that in there. But then, some of who they actually are, and the age that we actually are [born in the ’80s], started to make an appearance. There started to be a little bit of Janet Jackson stuff happening, and some Whitney (Houston), and Erasure, and even PM Dawn. I hope this comes across in the right way, but it’s grown-ass pop. It’s like pop music for grown-ups, and I mean that in the coolest, most avant-garde way. But I do think it’s the best pop record of the last 20 years.”

No small claim, from Carlile. But let’s let the two women of Lucius speak for themselves now. Variety met up with the dynamic duo on Wolfe’s deck overlooking downtown Los Angeles.

With Brandi and Dave producing, there was an expectation that “Second Nature” might lean toward Americana. But it’s very dance-oriented, in a Robyn-meets-the-late-‘70s kind of way.

Laessig: I think “Dance Around It” [which ended up featuring Carlile and Sheryl Crow on backing vocals] was probably the first one where we were like, “We’re going to make a dance song.” And doing that felt so good and cathartic at that point in time, during lockdown, and so we were like, “Oh, we need more of that feeling.” And Dave, from the get-go, wanted to make a disco record.

Wolfe: Partly because he is more accustomed to making Americana records, it was exciting to him to do something a little bit outside of the norm for him. When he said that, it was affirming of the feeling that we already had, which was like: We’ve been stuck inside. Can we still talk about heavy life experiences, but have a party and find something joyful in this dark moment?

And we love Robyn — we’re big fans. In fact, early on in the pandemic, we were having these weekly hangouts with our fans. One week we did a DJ set, and everybody could submit songs on this app called Jukebox. We had control over it, but people could suggest songs so we could see their suggestions and move them around and DJ. So everybody could hear it at the same time, dance at the same time, and see each other. It was the most real version of a dance party you could have through a computer. When we played the Robyn song, that was epic — people were losing their shit, turning the lights on and off.

Speaking to the album’s more personal side… Jess, your ex-husband [Dan Molad] is in the band. It hasn’t been that many years since you split. After the band was apart for some of the pandemic, what was it like bringing him into the studio to play on songs you’d written about your divorce?

Wolfe: We had sent [him] demos, because that would be a lot for somebody to inhale in one sitting. But we always, while we were married, too,  always had a green light when it came to writing. Like, you should not have any block or limit to what it is that you need to express artistically. And so I knew that it was okay, and he did expect songs to be about it. The songs have always been about our relationships. But I remember playing him “Man I’ll Never Find,” which is a big song emotionally, and he said, “It’s the best song you’ve ever written.” There’s an understanding and a camaraderie in our art and partnership, which is why things have gone as well as they can, given that circumstance.

There’s no one else in pop that does 100% unison singing besides you two. What is the origin story of that?

Wolfe: The way that we stumbled upon it was accidental, except we were present enough to recognize it. We were in college (at Berklee College of Music), working on a little recording project, and we started singing in unison. And we’re like, “Oh, this is like a double-tracked vocal, except there’s two of us” — and we could do it live. Both of us wanted to be the lead singer, but we didn’t want to just trade off. This was a way of being the lead singer together. It’s literally been the thing that’s anchored our entire career, this voice that we make together.

Is dressing alike on top of singing alike more about creating a kind of pop-art, or is there an element of branding because of that instant recognizability you have?

Wolfe: We weren’t thinking that it would be as much of a branding tool as it became. We are influenced by artists who have a strong visual representation of their music, like David Bowie. When we started, the idea was: We are singing as one unit. When people see us live, how can we visualize that in a way where they’re seeing what they’re hearing? When you go see a choir, they’re all wearing matching robes, because you are meant to hear them as as one voice, even though you make out different faces. But then with us, it became a sparkle/glitter explosion. [Laughs.] Which we never get sick of.

Do you have identical-dress and wig wranglers?

Wolfe: We are the wig and costume wranglers. It takes a lot of time and effort to keep finding new things that fit both of our body types.

Laessig: I remember running around Europe on the “Wildewoman” tour, looking for a last-minute costume. We went to H&M, and it was just like, go straight to the sale rack — the thing that nobody else wants … like the sparkliest, gaudiest thing.

Wolfe: It was the rainbow sequin top and skirt that matched. We wore that outfit singing with Jeff Tweedy, Mavis Staples, John Prine — it did us good, that 30 bucks.

Talk about being out with Roger Waters on his mammoth tour for years. Besides being featured on the surprising amount of Pink Floyd songs that are powered by female backing vocals, you took over the lead on  “The Great Gig in the Sky”  — quite an iconic classic-rock moment to recreate. Obviously on the original record it was not designed for two voices in harmony.

Wolfe: It was meant to be this voice of God — well, I shouldn’t say that, because Roger does not believe in God! — when Clare Torry sang it on “Dark Side of the Moon.” But Roger wasn’t looking for us to be traditional background singers. He was looking for us to give a piece of what it is that we do to his art, and was generous in allowing us to take this very iconic moment and come up with our own version of it. And I’m so glad he did, even though it was a process, because it’s a crazy song to tackle.

How were Pink Floyd fanatics about that? Any resistance to reformulating things?

Wolfe: Some Pink Floyd fans are purists, and others are just along for the ride. However it is delivered, they’re going to be there because they are so supportive and it’s their greatest joy to hear that music. So probably a little bit of both. [Laughs.] I think in some ways, they welcomed us with open arms. We definitely shined in our femininity on stage, both musically and visually. But others just want to hear the thing that they’ve heard on record for their entire lives, which, of course, we understand, but it’s not that. We are not [Torry], or whoever it was that was singing before us. We’re us.

You aren’t on the coming Waters tour, right?

Wolfe: No. We have a little FOMO. We have become a touring fam. We’ve played to 350,000 people with Roger. And it is some of the moments that I know we will both hold onto and cherish for our entire lives. But nothing beats being in a room with 500 fans screaming your own lyrics. There’s nothing that could ever top that, which is amazing to recognize now on the other side, because that was a wild, magical adventure.

You’ve been on so many records. Do you have a favorite guest appearance you’ve done?

Laessig: We’ve done such an array of records with people, so it’s really hard to say between John Legend and War on Drugs and Harry Styles and Roger Waters and Sheryl Crow and Brandi Carlile and Grace Potter and Ozzy Osbourne.  I would say everybody that we’ve done a record with, when we go in the studio, they say, “Okay, you want to listen to this?” We do. And then they say, “Okay, go for it. Just do your thing. We want to hear what you do. That’s why you’re here.” And so it’s like a playground for us, because we’re not as obsessive since it’s not our own thing. So we get to try a whole bunch of stuff and just run amuck and see what lands. I don’t know. Do you have a favorite?

Wolfe: No. It changes. I will say I love listening to that War on Drugs song. I can listen to it forever. It is such a great song. And again, it was one of those things where Adam (Granduciel) wanted us to be us. And we came in there and played around with pads. And oftentimes we’ll tell people, if they give us the green light to do our thing, “We’re just going to layer a bunch of stuff and you can pick and choose what you keep. We’ll maybe even do extra, just so you have some stuff to play around with, and then you can sculpt it as you wish.” And a lot of times they’ll just keep everything. With Brandi, “You and Me on the Rock” was exactly as we recorded it. aAnd same with “I Don’t Live Here Anymore,” exactly as we recorded it. It’s an honor really that they entrust us with their own art, to take the lead, knowing that this is what we do and we’re going to contribute something that they wouldn’t have been able to get otherwise. And I’m really grateful that we’ve gotten to a point where people recognize that. .

Your appearance on Harry Styles’ “Treat People With Kindness” was unusual, because you sing the chorus without him.

Wolfe: I remember the bridge was our concept, but the chorus was written. We actually went into the studio to write a song with him, which we didn’t finish, but at the end of the session, he was like, “Would you mind singing on this track?” We thought he was going to be singing over it, or with us. We didn’t know that the chorus was just going to be us. So we were surprised to see that, especially because…

Laessig: …we’re not listed.

Wolfe: They didn’t want to credit us as being featured on the record. And I say “they,” because we never spoke to Harry about this or anything. It’s been one of the moments that’s really sort of hurt us because here’s this opportunity… Normally when we go into the recording process, we work out the details ahead of time. We always ask, is this a feature? Is there a possibility for a feature? Because one, it changes how we’re going to charge people. And two, it changes like how we’re going to approach it, in a lot of ways. But we didn’t know we were going in to sing. We thought we were just going in to write. And after the fact, we heard the song and we’re singing the entire chorus without him, without anyone, just us. And…

Laessig: They said “We’re not having any features on the record. And if you don’t want that, then we’ll just take your voices off and replace them.”

Wolfe: They even spelled Holly’s name wrong in the credits on the album. Here’s these women who are trying to make a career for ourselves, and you wanted us to be a part of your thing, but you didn’t want to give the rightful credit for it. Like, how is that taking away from you? … We’ve always tried to be like that supportive and that honoring of the people around us as well… We made a TikTok that was like, “Did you know that we sang this chorus?” And we got a million views in one day: “You’re the voices? I had no idea.” Strangely enough, “Treat People With Kindness” is the name of the song. We’re not looking to like start a fight. It’s more about just like making a point: Where’s the love? That’s literally what the song is about.

You’ve gotten featured credit — and respect — with your other guest appearances, though?

Wolfe: Here’s Roger Waters being like, “Do whatever you want on my most iconic songs of all time. I want you to stand next to me throughout this show. And I will introduce your band name every night.” And he sits in on our shows, and does Instagram Lives with us…

Roger Waters goes on your Instagram Live?

Laessig: [Laughs] He did a radio show with us about disco, which he hates, and said so, multiple times throughout. He mentioned “the mind-numbingness of it” five times. It was great.

There are songs that reference recent developments in your lives on the new record, including what we talked about related to Jess’ divorce. Holly, you had a son during this time frame. Are there any secret childbirth songs on the album?

Laessig: No, but we made another record before this one, that hasn’t come out yet, and that record strangely is called “Mother.”

Wolfe: And that was even before Oscar [Laessig’s son] was even a thought. It was more about like the egg, the seed of connection and seed of life, as opposed to what might be happening a year later. So when people do hear it, they’re going to think that was written probably at this time, but it actually was foreshadowing.

Why did you move on and make “Second Nature” instead of releasing “Mother”?

Wolfe: It was quite heavy, and also required a lot more of the listener. It just felt cerebral… and beautiful.  I’m so proud of those songs and those recordings, and it will see the light of day, but it felt like asking a lot of people off the heels of [the pandemic] — and not even off the heels; I mean, we’re not even totally out of this thing — but coming out of something that has been really intense for everyone, in similar and different ways. So this [“Second Nature”] felt like something we needed. We’re still talking about intense things, but in a way that makes it easier to cope with, so maybe we can get out of it a little bit lighter.

You’ve done a couple of wonderful videos for the first two singles. The one that’s set in an indoor swap meet out in the San Gabriel Valley, “Heartbursts,” looks like it could have been fun to shoot.

Wolfe: I grew up going to the swap meet because it’s my dad’s business. My first jobs were there. In coming up with the concept for this video, we had a pretty small budget. The idea was finding people in their everyday lives who break out into their joy, whether they’re in a difficult place or they’re in a really magical place of first love, whatever the circumstances. The original idea was, oh, there’d be a family in a supermarket, somebody at the nail salon, somebody at the barber shop, all these different places. But to get permits for all those different places is just wildly expensive. It was like, “Wait a minute: We can do all of this under one roof, at the swap meet.” And all of the vendors were really excited about it; it brightened everybody’s day and was the easiest, most joyful video-making experience we’d ever experienced. The feeling that we wanted people to get from the video is what we experienced the entire time while shooting it — it was magical.

“Dance Around it” has background vocals by Brandi and Sheryl Crow, whom you’ve done a lot of things with, and written at her house…

Laessig: We asked them to sing “dance, dance, dance,” just singing around a mic. We’re standing by going, “Are we insane for asking Brandi Carlile and Sheryl Crow to sing this on our record? [Laughs.] Are we using them to their best abilities?”

The video for “Dance Around It” has Brandi and Sheryl in it, but mostly fan-submitted footage. How did that work?

Laessig: There were about a thousand people who responded to the request, and they received an email with instructions and an audio file. I had cut up all the verses and choruses and either sped them up as fast as I thought you could speed them up and still sing or as slow as possible where I thought people could still make out some sort of words to sing along to. And these people must have thought we were crazy, but they did it. If you speed something up, it makes it more frenetic and exciting, and if you slow it down, it makes things feel dreamier. They didn’t get to hear the real song until it came out. They just trusted in us and we trusted in them. And even Brandi and Sheryl received the same email with the same clips.

Looking over some of the lyrics, it’s maybe a little ironic that you sing and dress in unison, but then in the song “Next to Normal,” you have the line “it’s time to separate yourself.” 

Laessig: That song is just about finding your tribe, finding your people or your person that makes you feel found.

Wolfe: WIth the two of us, I just think about moments where we’ve been matching, walking down the street in New York City, the two of us in our get-ups going to some interview or something where we had to arrive dressed — feeling like when people are looking at us, either they recognize us or they just are like, “Who are these weird ladies dressed as twins?” But we always laughed and giggled through the process. We were like, that’s my people.

Laessig: That is a funny image, when you’re talking about the lyric, “When everyone’s the same, it’s time to separate yourself,” because we dress the same. We are very different, and our voices are very different, and we’re complementary. It goes back to the whole dressing as a choir, dressing as a unit thing for performative reasons. But I think accepting each other’s quirks and individualities and like still saying, “Oh yeah, that’s you, this is me, and I want to be in your tribe. We’re one amd the same if we’re together.” You find your person and it doesn’t matter how different we are on our own, if that makes sense.

Finding the one person or group of people that makes you feel not weird?

Laessig: Or feeling weird in good company. Because we are OK with being weird.

Lucius Weighs In On Singing Backup for Roger Waters at Desert Trip

by David Brendan Hall October 19, 2016, 2:53 pm

lucius

Proverbially speaking, when a member of Pink Floyd tells you to get your shit together, you do it. Which is essentially how Lucius singers Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig ended up singing backup for the entirety of Roger Waters’ sets at dual weekends of the inaugural Desert Trip music festival in Indio, CA (Oct. 7-9 & 14-16), which featured Waters, the Who, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, the Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan. About an hour before the Weekend 2 finale, they sit down with me in a backstage trailer – already decked out in their matching black dresses and capes complete with custom Dark Side of the Moon prism and scarab motifs – to reminisce about how it all came to fruition.

Videos by American Songwriter

“Originally we were only supposed to sing a couple songs, so we get [to rehearsal] and sing the first song … and Roger looked over at us and gave us a sort of look of approval. And we weren’t singing on the next one, so we just sat down in awe, taking it all in,” recalls Wolfe. “Halfway through the first verse of the next song, he stops, looks over at us and goes, ‘Man up.’”

DESERT TRIP’S WEEKEND TWO EARNS SUPERIOR MARKS

That was back in July of 2015 during rehearsals for a special set at Newport Folk Festival, which featured My Morning Jacket as Waters’ surprise backing band. During the moment in question, MMJ frontman Jim James spoke up to inform Waters that the pair was only singing on a couple songs. His unhesitant response: “They’re singing on every song.”

“So we just got it together,” Wolfe says. “It could have been a frightening thing for most people, but we took it as the ultimate compliment, because if he didn’t like what he heard, he wouldn’t have done that.”

Naturally, Waters’ endorsement extended to asking Wolfe and Laessig to come along for both weekends of Desert Trip, where they took pride in making up two-thirds of all female performers across the six bands (not counting Rihanna’s Weekend 2 surprise spot with McCartney, the Rolling Stones’ stellar backup chanteuse Sasha Allen was the third).

“As young girls, I don’t think either of us ever imagined sharing the stage with these people,” says Wolfe. “I mean, this week I cried during Paul McCartney, last week I cried during the Rolling Stones … it’s surreal.”

When I remind them that playing such an essential role both weekends – their explosive vocal solos during “The Great Gig in the Sky” and “Bring the Boys Back Home” proved them indispensible – immortalizes them as irreplaceable pieces of music history, their responses are wistful.

“It’s pretty incredible to be singing these songs, on that stage, with this lineup and that person,” muses Wolfe. “Every so often he turns over to us and blows us a kiss, or walks past us on stage and says under his breath, ‘Bravo’ – it’s super emotional.”

“When is this gonna happen again? Never,” adds Laessig.

Certainly, Laessig is correct in the sense that this show’s context is a moment in time never to be repeated – the likelihood of ever reuniting these weekends’ lineups is virtually nil. But Lucius has only one month left touring behind their sophomore album Good Grief , and the group’s only other plans thus far are to begin work on a third album. So could the duo join Waters’ massive Us + Them Tour, which kicks off its 42-date U.S. and Canadian tour May 26 in Kansas City, MO?

At this point, it’s too early to call, they tell me. Besides, they’re gonna need a little downtime to process the enormity of their double-weekend “trip.”

“I think in the middle of next week it might finally hit me,” says Laessig. “I’ll be like, ‘What the hell just happened?’”

Roger Waters Sits in with Lucius at the Beacon

Roger Waters Sits in with Lucius at the Beacon

Roger Waters sat in with Lucius at New York’s Beacon Theatre this evening. The Pink Floyd confounder emerged during the group’s encore to sing and play acoustic guitar with the band on a version of “Mother,” from 1979’s The Wall . 

Lucius singers Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig first crossed paths with Waters in 2015 when they backed him at Newport, RI’s Newport Folk Festival as part of an all-star combo that also included My Morning Jacket and GE Smith. The singers went on to tour with Waters for a few years as part of his solo act. 

Waters’ cameo was part of a highly collaborative week for the members of Lucius. Last night, both Celisse, members of Stay Human and Sheryl Crow–who lent the band’s core songwriting duo her home to work on their new Mom & Pop album,  Second Nature –joined Lucius on The Late Show. Celisse also opened the ensemble’s Beacon show and emerged during Lucius’ set for “Dance Around It;” Trey Anastasio, who employed her for both his Ghosts of the Forest project and Phish’s 2016 Halloween tribute to David Bowie, attended the show and watched and shared photos from the side of the stage. 

Lucius will perform at Montclair, NJ’s Wellmont on Friday.

Indie pop quartet Lucius  played the historic  Beacon Theatre  Wednesday night, and the band was joined by Pink Floyd guitarist Roger Waters , who sang a rendition of “Mother” for the show’s encore.

This was not the first time Roger Waters performed with Lucius’  Jess Wolfe and  Holly Laessig . Both toured in the Pink Floyd guitarist’s band during his  Us + Them tour in 2017 and 2018. “Mother” never appeared on the setlist that tour, but they did perform the song together at  Newport Folk Festival in 2015 and at Lucius’s concert at London’s  Union Chapel in 2018.

Waters was not the only famous guitar player in attendance Wednesday night. Phish ‘s Trey Anastasio posted photos of the concert on social media, including shots with singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Celisse Henderson , who opened the show. The two musicians have played together in Trey’s  Ghosts of the Forest project, of which Celisse is a member , and Trey sat in with Celisse’s band at last year’s Peach Music Festival .

In addition to the band’s Beacon Theatre show, Lucius performed “Dance Around” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert  with special guests Sheryl Crow , Celisse, and Late Show  house band  Stay Human . Watch video of the performance below.

Roger Waters will launch his This is Not a Drill tour in July with a show at Pittsburgh, PA’s PPG Paints Arena . For more info and to purchase tickets, visit his website .

Roger Waters Kicks Off 2022 Tour: Set List, Photos and Videos

Roger Waters began the first night of his 2022 This Is Not a Drill tour with a cheerful message projected onto the screens above the stage: “If you don’t agree with Roger’s politics, you might do well to fuck off to the bar right now.”

For the most part, the crowd at the PPG Glass Arena in Pittsburgh Wednesday night laughed, roared and whooped their tacit acknowledgment of the Pink Floyd co-founder’s advice.

While decidedly political, Waters’ first tour in five years is more than just a strident pulpit for his progressive (some prefer the word “radical”) views. Yes, This Is Not a Drill takes to task everyone from the past six U.S. presidents to rich oligarchies to foreign fascists. However, it also acts as a signal boost for both compassionate altruism and revealing aspects of Waters’ mythology.

You can see photos, the full set list and fan-shot videos of the show below.

Waters and his band performed in the middle of the PPG floor, surrounded by catwalks, stage extensions and an elongated hi-tech screen system above the musicians. The screen was used repeatedly for excellent dramatic (and political) effect, displaying short films, disturbing animation and archival footage of his first band. The proceedings began with a widescreen panorama of a skyline of dilapidated, semi-destroyed skyscrapers, best described as somewhere between such dystopian sci-fi classics as Blade Runner and I Am Legend . It was the perfect visual for Waters’ opening salvo, a lugubrious droning arrangement of Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb” performed by him and backing vocalists Shanay Johnson and Amanda Belair channeling some version of a celestial choir.

Watch Roger Waters' This Is Not a Drill Introduction Video

Watch Roger Waters Perform 'Comfortably Numb'

And that was only the beginning of an arresting evening filled with dynamic playing, personal history, political invective and one new, as-yet-unrecorded Waters composition. He accompanied himself on piano during “The Bar,” describing the song not as the place where naysayers who didn’t like his beliefs could go, but rather as a place where people with shared beliefs “can be better people for all our fellow human beings.”

That poignancy gave way to Pink Floyd’s cynical “Have a Cigar,” one of the best songs to ever smack down music industry egos. Then Waters (via typed narrative text on the screen) discussed the roots of his friendship with tragic genius and Floyd co-founder Syd Barrett . That then led to him describing a breakdown that led to the creation of the song “Wish You Were Here” and excerpts from the Barrett paean “Shine On You Crazy Diamond.” These personal moments would give way to the footage of Reuters journalists being killed via drone strikes, material that was leaked to the internet by Chelsea Manning and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. Waters was running both sonic and psychic roller coasters to his listeners in the hopes of consciousness- and/or hell-raising before breaking for a 20-minute intermission.

For the second set, Waters and his band tempered their headline-news warnings with fan favorites and more unlikely twists and turns. Donning a full-length leather duster and aviator sunglasses (and flanked by a faux security detail), Waters delivered a scathing take on Pink Floyd’s “In the Flesh,” ramming home the rock-star-as-fascist-despot role with great aplomb. A spirited version of “Run Like Hell” followed, with that crucial line (“ They’re gonna send you back to mother in a cardboard box, you better run! ”) still capable of turning your blood to Freon, decades after its release. Waters continued his activist awareness with passionate performances of “Deja Vu” and the pointed “Is This the Life We Really Want?”

Watch Roger Waters Perform 'Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2 + Part 3'

But fans who came to This Is Not a Drill with a great sense of the apolitical were still rewarded. The band delivered stellar versions of all the tracks on Side Two of both 1973's The Dark Side of the Moon and 1975's Wish You Were Here . Some people would think Waters would be eye-rolling his way through these fan-service gestures, playing songs older than everyone currently in the SoundScan Top 100. But Waters did not need to deny his past or come off cloying.

He commandeered guitarist Jonathan Wilson to sing the classic “Money” so he could put his bass on and get in the trenches with the rest of his backing band. Contemporary versions of “Us And Them,” the wondrously psychedelic instrumental “Any Colour You Like” and the FM-playlist staples “Brain Damage” and “Eclipse” were delivered with enough contemporary energy and wondrous musicianship that it didn’t come off like a cover band phoning it in quickly for free drinks and middle-aged divorcees at the bar, post-show.

Watch Roger Waters Perform 'The Bar'

After wrapping up the concert with “Two Suns in the Sunset” (Waters’ ode to the Doomsday Clock from Pink Floyd’s The Final Cut LP) and a reprise of “The Bar” segueing into “Outside the Wall,” Waters and band said farewell and played themselves offstage as a video crew followed them into their dressing room, projecting the exit onscreen in real time. Waters showed gratitude to both his touring crew’s professionalism and wherewithal in building the elaborate in-the-round set and to his audience for their continued dedication.

But it’s those fans who understand without question Waters’ passion and dedication to his craft. At 78, Roger Waters can stay at his home in the Hamptons with his wife and collect mechanical royalties from a career that’s been both lucrative and alluring for well over half a century. With the U.S. looking irredeemably polarized, Waters is either ambitious or audacious in his desire to wake the populace in the best way he sees fit. He doesn’t need to be traversing our highways spreading a message. After all, it's right there in the name of the tour.

Recent tour reviews

An incredible show in an already classic and majestic venue. The acoustic of the Union Chapel set the perfect atmosphere to host the stunning voices of Lucius that were complemented with slightly softer strings than usual to fit the promotion of their latest acoustic album.

As a bonus to the show, towards the end they invited Roger Waters on stage for him to sing "Mother" (Pink Floyd cover) and "Goodnight, Irene" (included in the album).

This was an incredible show that provided a more delicate and deeper tune of the band than the one shown in the previous shows some years ago (Koko, Camden).

Looking forward to the next chance to see them performing.

A live act like Lucius is rare indeed. Musically, they are so tight, so razor sharp, they border perfection. I was reminded of so many great bands last night--fleetwood mac, the mamas and papas, crosby, stills, and nash...the harmonies were so mind-blowing. They are down-to-earth, warm, gracious, and each band member is so, so, SO talented. At last night's show, they orchestrated an elaborate lie in order to help someone propose marriage on stage--which brought the house down. They were angels about it. The songwriting, the clap-alongs, the quirky costumes, and couldn't-be-more-real talent of Holly and Jess was one of the more memorable and enjoyable musical experiences I've had in a long time. If you ever have the chance to see this band, DO NOT HESITATE.

They gave a truly amazing show! They performed every song with so much energy and sang even better than their recordings. I would definitely go to see them again. The venue was cool too, because it was smaller so we were right up front. :)

Acclaimed indie band Lucius has been turning heads since the start thanks to their irrepressibly catchy songs, explosive harmonies, and bold aesthetic. Formed byJess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, the Los Angeles group got rolling with their 2013 debut album Wildewoman — featuring long-standing hits like “Two of Us on the Run”. Rolling Stone hailed the record for “an updated ’60s girl-group sound at once fresh and thrilling”. Lucius shifted towards a folk rock sound with 2016’s Good Grief before taking a break from the studio to join Roger Waters on his Us + Them Tour in 2017-18. The GRAMMY-nominated band returned to the studio in 2022 with the dance-ready collection Second Nature, which features singles “Next to Normal”, one of NPR Music’s top songs of the year and “Dance Around It” the pulsing song with Sheryl Crow and Brandi Carlile.

“Comfortably Numb 2022”

lucius roger waters tour 2022

Before lockdown I had been working on a demo of a new version of ‘Comfortably Numb’ as an opener to our new show “This Is Not A Drill”. I pitched it a whole step down, in A Minor, to make it darker and arranged it with no solos, except over the outro, where there is a heartrendingly beautiful vocal solo from one of our new sisters Shanay Johnson.

It’s intended as a wakeup call, and a bridge towards a kinder future with more talking to strangers, either in “The Bar” or just “Passing in the Street” and less slaughter “In Some Foreign Field.”

Here it is. Love R. The video is by Sean Evans. The mix is by Gus Seyffert.

Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of Lucius on tour with Roger Waters: 'It feels like we were meant to sing these songs'

by Luke Taylor

July 27, 2017

Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, the lead singers of the band Lucius, were recruited by Roger Waters to perform with him on a 63-date North American tour. On Wednesday night, Wolfe and Laessig were in St. Paul to perform with Waters at the Xcel Energy Center.

Before the show, deep within the lower chambers of the Xcel, The Current caught up with the Lucius frontwomen as they prepared for that evening's performance. Through the walls, Waters could be heard rehearsing with his band in the main arena.

In addition to talking about their experience with Waters, Wolfe and Laessig also shared insights about what's happening with Lucius. Here's what they had to say:

THE CURRENT: You're touring with Roger Waters in the Us + Them tour; this sort of came about by degrees, starting at Newport, then Desert Trip, and those events have been well documented . But how did it go that you were going to be on the album, and then accompanying Roger Waters for this entire tour?

JESS WOLFE: The album was actually being recorded somewhere between Newport and Desert Trip, so we were already recording the record when we knew that we would be going to Desert Trip with Roger. It was sort of around the time that he asked us. He sort of said, "And I'd also like you to be on the record." It was in between.

After Newport, he had written us and said, "We definitely have to do this again some time." And we said, "Yeah, let's do it again some time." And then he wrote us a couple months later and said, "There's this crazy thing happening in the desert in Coachella Valley with Paul McCartney and the Rolling Stones," et cetera — all of our biggest influences!

On this tour, you're doing old and new stuff. Before the tour, how familiar were you with the Pink Floyd back catalogue?

JW: I listened to Pink Floyd in late high school, early college years pretty consistently. But both of us, we weren't quite as heavy fans as most of his fans are. I think you were either 100 percent in or just appreciative of it and slightly familiar with the hits. I would say that we were somewhere between there. Holly, maybe less even.

HOLLY LAESSIG: Yeah, it was never introduced to me, I guess. I got introduced to a lot of music by my sister, and she wasn't a fan, so it never came onto my radar. But after learning it and getting deep into these songs and stuff, it's completely up my and our alley. It makes so much sense to me why we would have come together in this way. So it's pretty cool.

One of the things that characterizes a Lucius performance is how emotive you two are as singers. Thse songs have so many themes of love and loss and mystery. Are you tapping into some of those same spaces to emote these songs?

JW: Yeah, it does feel strangely familiar and comfortable on stage. It feels like we were meant to sing these songs at some point in our life. So it feels like kismet.

When we were entering the Xcel Energy Center, we must have passed at least six semitrailers and all kinds of gear. We remember you coming to The Current, driving your own van, unloading your own gear. What's it like being part of a production of this scale?

JW: It's definitely not something we've ever been a part of, but it's wildly organized. And so it never feels frantic; I would say that it's more stressful doing what we do [as Lucius]. At least on our end of things. We have it pretty easy: we just show up and do our makeup and hair and some warmups and sound check and show time, and then we leave.

But for our show [as Lucius], we're loading in everything and we're driving ourselves. Well, now we're in a bus so we have it a little bit easier, but there's still a heavy load.

On the singing side of things, this is a 63-date tour, St. Paul is show 29. Are you calling on your formal training as far as taking care of your voices?

JW: It's definitely demanding, vocally, in a way we're not used to. The shows are two-and-a-half hours. I mean, there's a 20-minute intermission, but we take that time to go say hi to our guests because we're usually off immediately after the show. It's definitely a lot more demanding vocally. I mean, a Lucius show, we still are very emotive and it's very dynamic and there's a lot of belting and stuff, but it's shorter and different.

HL: Yeah, but I think the first few years of when we were touring as a band, it was really important leading up to this moment because we were playing shows every night and doing radio shows every morning and driving ourselves overnight and working on complete exhaustion, and learned when we lost our voices what we needed: we needed to sleep more … we just picked up all these tricks along the way because it was very demanding in the beginning of touring ourselves. I think that's definitely helped with knowing our voices really well and knowing our bodies really well on the road and applying that to this situation.

In his performances, Roger Waters is very politically overt. What's it like working with an artist like that?

JW: He's really intense and has such strong feeling about humanity and he wants to voice the concern and pain and hardship that's happening before us right now. And I think a lot of people feel — most people, I would even say — feel similarly. Even though I know some people go to a concert to find relief in that, I think there's a beauty in feeling like you're being heard; somebody else is with you. It's heavy enough right now where there's really a necessity to — and actually almost no choice to have to talk about it as an artist. We were just talking about this the other day; it's really frustrating when people say, "Just stick to the music." Because when you're a writer and an artist, I mean, much of what we do is voicing our experience in life, and a big part of that is what's happening in the world. And what's happening in our country directly affects each and every one of us. It's very hard to not want to say something about that, so in that respect, I give him a lot of credit for being so bold. Even though he doesn't live here — sorry, he does live in the U.S. — but even though he's not American, I think it's a strong enough topic to talk about.

HL: I agree.

It may be a safe assumption that Waters' traditional audience may not have been aware of Lucius before. Are you noticing more curiosity about your band? Are new people discovering you for your own music?

JW: Yeah, I think there's quite a bit of that. Definitely we have a different audience, and I think our main fanbase is saying, "Don't forget about us — we want to hear Lucius." And we're so grateful for that. It's really nice to be a part of something that we're more of a cog in the wheel as opposed to the ones running the ship. There is a beauty in that, especially to work with somebody of such legendary musical stature. But there's definitely people who are noticing us, and that's a great thing. Definitely helpful.

You're working on your third album, but is this sort of a break from Lucius? Where does Lucius's work stand right now? Is this a nice hiatus where you can let your thoughts percolate? Or are you doing things on the side as you can?

JW: We're writing and developing new ideas of how we can make doing this tour and keeping the momentum and excitement and our own motor running. So we're taking great care in making sure that that keeps going. And being part of something like this and being around somebody like Roger, it's very inspiring: visually, musically. So we're coming up with all sorts of ideas. We have a pretty exciting list of to-dos.

One of the things on your list of to-dos during the break in the tour is you'll be coming to do the Music-on-a-Stick show at the Minnesota State Fair.

JW: Yes! September second!

When Lucius played The Current's Microshow at the Minnesota State Capitol Rotunda , we had a chance to talk briefly with Dan Molad about some of the new faces in the band lineup. Can you tell us more about them?

JW: We're kind of experimenting at this time. There's no official new members or anything like that. It's the four of us [Wolfe, Laessig, Dan Molad and Peter Lalish] that'll be going into the studio when we do.

We're just using this opportunity to try playing with other people. It's been really fun, because you're experimenting with different configurations and singing with different voices and that's a really fun thing to do. And there's so many people that we're fond of musically that we're getting the chance to play with.

But it will be the six of us, the ones that were at the Rotunda, who will be playing the State Fair.

We just love being in Minnesota. We've had so many career highlights — some of our biggest shows ever were here, at First Ave, and then at the Walker Art Center. And The Current has been so kind and supportive of us throughout the last several years. It's one of our favorite places to be, so we're really excited to be coming back. We're not doing a lot of touring this year, so to be able to do this in Minnesota is a highlight for sure.

Roger Waters has said that he's going to be taking to Europe and to Australia and New Zealand in 2018. Do you two have any indication that you'll be on that tour?

JW: We're going to be some more touring with him; I won't be so specific about where and when, but we're also going to be doing a bunch of Lucius stuff next year, so it's going to be a jam-packed, exciting year ahead. So you'll definitely be seeing us again, and we'll also be joining Roger for some really exciting stuff. We're really looking forward to it.

                     Praise for The National

“One of the most enduring and influential indie rock bands of the 21st century.” – Variety

“Only The National have the consistency of catalogue and the sheer musicianship to deliver such a marathon showcase of pure class. They are one of the century’s finest. Long may they reign.” – NME *****

                 Praise for The War On Drugs  

“[The War On Drugs] has reached improbable heights with meticulously crafted, guitar-forward songs”

 – The New York Times

“It’s hard to imagine a musical experience that’s more enveloping and uplifting than what The War On Drugs brought to the stage.” – Consequence of Sound

About The National

Formed in 1999, The National have established themselves as mainstays of arenas and festivals with sold-out performances and headlining slots around the world. The band has scored five top 10 albums on The Billboard 200, multiple Grammy nominations with 2017’s Sleep Well Beast earning the award for Best Alternative Album.

The National dropped not one but two new albums in 2023. First Two Pages of Frankenstein was released in April, followed by a surprise album Laugh Track in September, both on 4AD. Across two albums worth of new material they were joined by Phoebe Bridgers, Taylor Swift, Roseanne Cash, Bon Iver and Sufjian Stevens. 2023 was their best live year yet, selling out shows in North America and Europe, including Madison Square Garden, LA’s Greek Theatre and Alexandra Palace in London.

Named one of their “ Best Albums of 2023 ”, Rolling Stone called First Two Pages of Frankenstein ”…a remarkable reassertion of their potency and shared commitment…Nine albums deep, the National found new energy by conjuring not just a great, suffocating fog but also the far light that guides the way out.” They were also named Forbes ’s “ Band of the Year” , with the article stating, “All The National did in 2023 was release two superb albums … have a brilliant sold-out tour, deliver the festival set of the year with their riveting performance at BottleRock and collaborated with the likes of Phoebe Bridgers, Swift and Sufjan Stevens. The National are so consistently great it becomes easy to take for granted they will be at the top of their game. But even by their lofty standards this was an incredible year.” And The New Yorker ’s Amanda Petrusich named it as one of her favorites of the year, saying if you already like “what the National has been doing for the past two-plus decades – making brooding, fraught, atmospheric rock and roll, marked by careful, resonant production and a ribbon of debauched humor—you are likely to also savor First Two Pages of Frankenstein , a heady encapsulation of the band’s entire gestalt.”

The National is Matt Berninger (vocals) fronting two pairs of brothers: Aaron (guitar, bass, piano) and Bryce Dessner (guitar, piano), and Scott (bass, guitar) and Bryan Devendorf (drums).

The War on Drugs have steadily emerged as one of this century’s great rock and roll synthesists, removing the gaps between the underground and the mainstream, between the obtuse and the anthemic, making records that wrestle a fractured past into a unified and engrossing present. Led by Adam Granduciel, The New Yorker called them “the best American ‘rock’ band of this decade” in support of their album, A Deeper Understanding, for which they won the 2018 Grammy for Best Rock Album and were nominated for a BRIT Award for International Group of the Year. 2020 saw the release of LIVE DRUGS featuring live interpretations of songs throughout their career, including off their 2014 breakthrough, Lost In The Dream. Co-produced by Granduciel and Shawn Everett, their fifth studio album, I Don’t Live Here Anymore, chips away some of their hazier edges in favor of sharper melodies, broadening the borders of the meticulous yet joyously simple sound [Granduciel] has perfected” (Pitchfork, Best New Music). It landed on numerous 2021 best albums of the year lists and garnered a second GRAMMY Award nomination (Best Rock Song) and BRIT Award nomination. The band headlined Madison Square Garden in support of its release.

About Lucius

Acclaimed indie band Lucius has been turning heads since the start thanks to their irrepressibly catchy songs, explosive harmonies, and bold aesthetic. Formed by Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, the Los Angeles group got rolling with their 2013 debut album Wildewoman — featuring long-standing hits like “Two of Us on the Run”. Rolling Stone hailed the record for “an updated ’60s girl-group sound at once fresh and thrilling.” Lucius shifted towards a folk rock sound with 2016’s Good Grief before taking a break from the studio to join Roger Waters on his Us + Them Tour in 2017-18. Lucius returned to the studio in 2022 with the dance-ready collection Second Nature , which features singles “Next to Normal”, one of NPR Music’s top songs of the year and “Dance Around It” the pulsing song with Sheryl Crow and Brandi Carlile. In addition to their own work, the GRAMMY-nominated Wolfe and Laessig are singers in demand: their voices have graced songs by a host of other artists, including Carlile, The War on Drugs, John Legend, Harry Styles, Jeff Tweedy and Ozzy Osbourne.

The Rolling Stones Announce ‘Hackney Diamonds’ North American Stadium Tour

By Andy Greene

Andy Greene

The Rolling Stones are hitting stadiums across North America in 2024 to celebrate the release of their new album, Hackney Diamonds . The 16-city tour (which includes a headlining slot at Jazz Fest in New Orleans) kicks off April 28 at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, and wraps up July 17 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Ticket sales begin December 1 at 10:00 am.

Hackney Diamonds is the first Rolling Stones album of new material since 2005’s A Bigger Bang . Produced by Andrew Watt and featuring guest appearances by Paul McCartney, Elton John, Stevie Wonder, and Lady Gaga, the album was met with near-universal acclaim. “A collection of bangers (old-school division) that nobody in their right mind had a right to expect in 2023,” Rolling Stone ’s David Browne wrote, “Hackney Diamonds isn’t just another new Stones album, but a vibrant and cohesive record — the first Stones album in ages you’ll want to crank more than once before filing away.”
