    The Lumineers blasted onto the music scene in 2011 with their hit track Ho Hey before releasing their self-titled debut album the following year. The album includes favourites like Submarines, Slow It Down and Dead Sea

    Since then, they have released three albums including their fourth studio album, Brightside

    Speaking to IOL, the two-man band made up of Wesley Schultz and Jeremiah Fraites, described the nine-track album as their “most rocking album”. 

    “There’s a fire to this record that we don’t think we were willing to go for in the past. We were able to get out of our own way and go direct to the source.”



    The Lumineers made their South African debut in 2014 with performances in Cape Town and Johannesburg and returned in 2017 for their Cleopatra World Tour. 

    This year, the folk band are gearing up for performances in Cape Town at the Grand West Arena on 30 November and in Pretoria at the SunBet Arena at Time Square Casino on 2 December. 

    Taking to Instagram on Monday 23 May, The Lumineers wrote: “We’re so excited to be bringing the Brightside World Tour to South Africa!”
