Winter is here, and we only have one song on repeat today!
Denver, Colorado – Some of us like to think of life as a game, others are born into royalty and can never behave. Some find a freedom like a man in a cage; some priest insisted it’s a test of the faith, and only holy devotion can keep the devils away. There’s only so much that a man can pray.
The Lumineers are one the many artists featured on For the Throne, the upcoming album featuring songs inspired by the smash hit HBO fantasy epic, Game of Thrones.
The Lumineers are an American folk rock band based in Denver, Colorado. The founding members are Wesley Schultz (lead vocals, guitar) and Jeremiah Fraites (drums, percussion). Schultz and Fraites began writing and performing together in Ramsey, New Jersey in 2005. Cellist and vocalist Neyla Pekarek joined the band in 2010 and was a member until 2018.
The Lumineers emerged as one of the most popular folk rock/Americana artists during the revival of those genres and their growing popularity in the 2010s. The band’s stripped back raw sound draws heavily from artists that influenced Schultz and Fraites such as Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan and Tom Petty. They are known for their energetic live shows and several international hit singles including “Ho Hey”, “Stubborn Love”, “Ophelia” and “Cleopatra”. The band has become one of the top touring bands in the United States and also sells out shows around the world.
For the Throne also features songs from Muse’s Matt Bellamy, Mumford & Sons, X Ambassadors and The National, among others. The whole album arrives April 26.
