Lanterns On The Lake are a four-piece indie rock band from Newcastle-upon-tyne, United Kingdom. The band is composed of Hazel Wilde, Paul Gregory, Oliver Ketteringham and Bob Allan.

History[edit]

Lanterns On The Lake formed in 2007.

They self-released two EPs and a single before signing to the Bella Union record label in December 2010.[1] Soon after the band provided a track for Bella Union's Christmas 10" EP along with new label mates Peter Broderick and Phil Selway.[2]

The song I Love You Sleepyhead was used in the film Where Soldiers Come From[3]

The band released their debut album Gracious Tide, Take Me Home on 19 September 2011.[4][5][6] The album was recorded by the band in their homes and produced by the band's guitarist Paul Gregory. The album received mainly positive reviews and received a metacritic rating of 74.[7]

The band's follow up album Until The Colours Run was released on 7 October 2013 in UK and Europe.[8] The album was recorded by the band during a time of financial uncertainty and personal problems.[9] The album received positive reviews, receiving a metacritic rating of 84[10] with many reviewers noting its socio-political undertones.[11] Drowned In Sound declared it "one of the best records of the young decade".[12]

In August 2015 the group announced that their third album, entitled "Beings", would be released worldwide on Friday 13th November 2015.[13]

The group's material is released in Europe by Bella Union and by PIAS in the USA.

The band have played a host of music festivals including End of the Road Festival, Glastonbury Festival,[14] SXSW, and Bestival.

Lanterns On The Lake have supported Explosions In The Sky on their UK tour including the O2 Academy, Brixton.[15] The band has also toured with Low, including a performance at the Royal Festival Hall in London [16] and with Yann Tiersen, including a performance at The Roundhouse [17]
