The Lucid Dream were formed in Carlisle, Cumbria, in 2008.
On the back of 'Erbistock Mill' EP, and 3 sold-out 7" single releases ('Love In My Veins' 'Heartbreak Girl' 'Hits Me Like I'm Stoned'), the band have gained acclaim from the likes of NME, Q, Frank Skinner (Absolute Radio), Steve Lamacq (BBC Radio 2 'Listeners Tip of the Week'), and major support from BBC 6 Music (Nemone 'Record of the Weekend', Lauren Laverne, Gideon Coe, Tom Robinson).
Most recently, the band were selected as full UK tour support to A Place To Bury Strangers, and followed this up by supporting Death In Vegas. This was on the back of supports to Spectrum, Crocodiles, Captain Beefheart's 'The Magic Band', and The Aliens, to name a few. The Lucid Dream have also established themselves as a live force across Europe, with shows in Belgium, France, Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Portugal and Italy.
The long-awaited debut album, 'Songs Of Lies and Deceit', was released on 5th August 2013 (on CD/download via Holy Are You Recordings, and vinyl via The Great Pop Supplement). The vinyl edition sold-out the initial press of 500 copies in 3 days. The album received acclaim from Uncut, Q, Clash, The Quietus and Stuart Maconie's Freakzone (BBC 6 Music), to name a few.
