After a five-year hiatus, Uncle Lucius released their new album ‘Like It’s The Last One Left’ on Friday just gone via Boo Clap Records/Thirty Tigers, alongside an official music video for ‘All The Angelenos’, which you can have a butchers at below. And on top of all that, they’ve just announced a run of three shows in England towards the end of next year in Manchester, Nottingham and London.

Written and recorded in the band’s hometown of Austin, Texas, ‘Like It’s The Last One Left’ is described as not just a return to form but “an expansion, bolstering Uncle Lucius’ mix of amped-up Americana and greasy roots-rock with string arrangements, adventurous production, and the sharpest songwriting of the group’s career.” During the years following the band’s farewell tour, their audience continued to organically grow, highlighted by the placement of their song “Keep the Wolves Away” in an episode of Yellowstone and its subsequent gold and platinum certifications. After a few years on hiatus – with a fresh outlook and a deep well of new ideas – the band members began to shake off their collective rust and blueprint songs that mirrored their career and current status, hitting on themes of resolve and resilience.

“There are no limitations this time around,” says frontman Kevin Galloway. “We’re exploring different areas of American roots music, and we’re doing it our own way. There’s a new perspective that comes with stepping away from something for a while, then coming back to it. You can see it with new eyes.”

To celebrate the release, they also announced this morning that they will be heading across the pond to play UK shows in Manchester, Nottingham and London in October 2024. Grab your tickets here and hope that we’re all still here in 10 months time.
