American alternative rock band Lifehouse have released their eighth studio album in the form of Out of Wasteland. The record comes three years after their previous release, Almería, and sixteen years since their debut album (under the name of Blyss), Diff’s Lucky Day, back in 1999.
The multi-platinum three-piece released the record via Ironworks Records on 10th July. To date, the band have sold over 15 million albums worldwide. Frontman Jason Wade said of their latest release: “There was a kind of unlearning with this album. We wanted to retrace our steps back to the beginning and really find the innocence, that feeling of being 17-year-old kids who get excited about playing in the garage.”
