THE LUMINEERS CELEBRATE 10TH ANNIVERSARY OF LANDMARK DEBUT ALBUM WITH NEW DELUXE VINYL EDITION VIA DECCA/DUALTONE
BRIGHTSIDE WORLD TOUR BEGINS MAY 17
The Lumineers are celebrating the 10th anniversary of their 3x RIAA platinum certified self-titled debut album with a very special deluxe vinyl edition set to arrive later this year – pre-orders are available now HERE. The upcoming vinyl release of The Lumineers will include six additional bonus tracks and will be available in a number of colored variants, with a limited number of signed copies available via Dualtone (in the U.S. & Canada), Decca Records (for the rest of the world), and the band’s official webstore.
Released April 3, 2012, The Lumineers proved a landmark debut for The Lumineers, rising to #2 on the Billboard 200– and #1 on Billboard’s “Top Alternative Albums,” “Top Rock Albums,” “Top Americana/Folk Albums,” and “Independent Albums” charts – in part thanks to such now-classic singles as “Ho Hey,” “Stubborn Love,” and “Submarines.” Among its many global achievements, the album earned 3x RIAA platinum certification in the U.S. as well as 4x platinum in Canada, and platinum in Australia, Ireland, and the United Kingdom. Moreover, both “Stubborn Love” and “Ho Hey” were awarded RIAA platinum, with the latter spending eighteen non-consecutive weeks atop Billboard’s “Rock Songs” chart, along with two weeks in the top spot on “Alternative Songs,” and eight weeks at #1 on “Adult Pop Songs.” What’s more, “Ho Hey” reached #3 on the Billboard “Hot 100,” marking The Lumineers’ first time on that chart as well as the first top 5 hit. The single continued to triumph well into 2013, eventually landing at #1 on Billboard’s year-end “Adult Contemporary Songs” and “Adult Pop Songs” tallies.
“The truth is,” says The Lumineers’ co-founder/co-songwriter Wesley Schultz, “this album came from two Jersey boys from the same hometown, obsessively writing music together and gigging in New York for five years before doing what everyone told us not to do – we LEFT New York to ‘make it’ by moving to Denver, Colorado. After a few years in Denver and hundreds of demos, open mics, house shows, and club gigs, something finally broke our way. This album is those seven years of toil and joy, poured into a raw collection of songs that sound so perfectly imperfect, as we all are…”
This week also sees the announcement of new tour dates, and one rescheduled date for The Lumineers’ hugely anticipated BRIGHTSIDE World Tour, set to begin May 17 at Jacksonville, FL’s Daily’s Place and then continue through early September.

The BRIGHTSIDE World Tour celebrates the recent arrival of the Lumineers’ eagerly anticipated new album, BRIGHTSIDE, available now via Dualtone in the U.S. & Canada and Decca Records for the rest of the world. The 2x GRAMMY® Award-nominated band’s fourth studio album, BRIGHTSIDE includes such new favorites as “A.M. RADIO,” “BIG SHOT,” “WHERE WE ARE,” and the chart-topping first single and title track, “BRIGHTSIDE,” all joined by official music videos streaming now at YouTube.
BRIGHTSIDE made #1 debuts on Billboard’s “Top Alternative Albums” and “Top Rock Albums” charts upon its January 14 release while also entering among the top 10 on the overall Billboard 200. In addition, “BRIGHTSIDE” recently made history by ascending to #1 on Billboard’s “Alternative National Airplay” and “Adult Alternative Airplay” charts – the band’s sixth time atop the latter ranking in less than ten years. The Lumineers now boast the most #1 singles among all acts on that chart in the span since achieving their first AAA chart-topper in 2012.
Produced by longtime collaborator Simone Felice and produced, mixed, and engineered by David Baron over two sessions in winter and spring 2021 at Baron’s Sun Mountain Studios in bucolic Boiceville, NY, BRIGHTSIDE marks The Lumineers’ first new music in more than two years. The nine-song collection sees The Lumineers’ co-founders/co-songwriters Wesley Schultz and Jeremiah Fraites performing virtually all of the eclectic, effervescent instrumentation, with Baron on a wide variety of keyboards and backing vocals and more by Simone Felice, touring members Byron Isaacs and Lauren Jacobson, famed backing singer Cindy Mizelle (Bruce Springsteen, Dave Matthews Band), The Felice Brothers’ James Felice, and acclaimed singer-songwriter Diana DeMuth.
