LUSH's American Tour is Back On Schedule!

Wonderful news from the band today! Finally, the visa problem is cleared up, and the rest of their schedule is a go for a great summer of gigs.

"Great news (at last). We can confirm that all our visa issues have now been resolved and we look forward to playing in Seattle at Showbox Presents tomorrow (20th April). Massive apologies again to the people of Portland, whose gig, we can now tell you, has been rescheduled to September 27th (all tickets already purchased will be honoured and refunds are available at the point of purchase). Furthermore, for those of you in Vancouver, we’ve moved the venue to the lovely surroundings of the The Rio Theatre,1660 East Broadway, Vancouver V5N 1W1. We look forward to seeing you on Thursday (21st April)." - LUSH

Miki :: No Regrets

"Even now," says Miki, "it won't be at all easy knowing Chris won't be there. We know you can't recapture what you had before, but hopefully it will be brilliant in a different way. If I think of all best bits of the band, how great it is to play live, and to play your own songs, then there's an open door you can walk through. I know I'll regret it if I didn't."

Lush :: Thoughtforms Debuts

Lush: Thoughtforms - what a beautifully made tribute mag! As if receiving my copy of 'Blind Spot' and the debut of Lush playing their first live gig in 20 years wasn't enough, this also made it's way to my mailbox. I've been looking forward to this and it lives up to the expectations. The hard work put into this shines...Thank you!

The new group photo... Love this band.

Happy 'Origami' Release Day!

Lush Plays Oslo :: The Guardian Review

After a 20-year break, Miki Berenyi and friends return fresh and inspired with new songs every bit as catchy and well crafted as their 90s hits

4AD Reveals New LUSH Site

4AD has just launched their own full-blown Lush site (not to be confused with the band's own site), detailing the bands history on the label, pre-2015 of course, beginning with a nice intro of where the band is today. There's even a mention of Emma stating that the next album(!) will be more rehearsed than 'Blindspot' is when it was recorded. All is told with the first person accounts of Miki, Emma and Phil, and additional details provided by former band mates Meriel Barnham and Steve Rippon and the very fitting tribute to Chris Acland and his importance to Lush are much appreciated.

LUSH's Low Key Comeback :: Louder Than War Review

Lush : low key comeback gig : live review - Louder Than War:
Yet despite the vintage of 95% of the set this didn't feel like nostalgia, this was a reborn band that feels like it has new things to say.

“No red hair – get over it!”

And with that and perfect set opener ‘De Luxe’ Lush rebirthed before our very eyes and ears and 20 years vanished in a whirlwind of singing strings.
