LITE // New Track, "Zone," and UK Tour

Today we're thrilled to share the latest from the prolific group LITE, with a premiere over at The Line of Best Fit. The track, "Zone," is the B side off the upcoming 7", entitled Blizzard, to be released digitally just ahead of an 8 day jaunt in the UK. You can pre-order the record today, just over here.

Blizzard showcases the band's renowned style of cinematic, melodically rampant math rock. Side A explores a host of stylistic influences, with skittering call-and-response guitars building over an electronic drum loop into a shimmering climax that consumes the listener like a blizzard. B side, "Zone," returns to the signature urgency of LITE, crashing straight into a breakneck, noodling ostinato that perfectly captures the group's cinematic style of composition. Check out the tour dates below.

  • September 13, 2018 - Ebisu, Japan @ Ebisu Liquid Room
  • September 27, 2018 - Shibuya, Japan @ Unknown venue
  • October 08, 2018 - Bristol, UK @ Exchange
