Lotus Releases Surprise Album ‘Frames Per Second’

Livetronica act Lotus surprised fans by issuing a new studio album entitled Frames Per Second. The band had been counting down to today’s release on their social media channels over the past week. Frames Per Second features 19 tracks, including some of which the group has played live.

Lotus recorded the album at Rittenhouse Soundworks in their hometown of Philadelphia. The quintet also captured the process for a forthcoming full in-studio documentary as per Relix. “We’ve done different things with different albums where singles are rolled out over a period of time and have done the advance, but I feel like in this day and age, when there’s so much information coming at you, we wanted to skip all that and just put out the album all at once and let everybody have access to it at the same time,” bassist Jesse Miller told Relix about the follow-up to 2016’s Eat The Light.

“One thing that’s important for projects is to put parameters and limits on them,” multi-instrumentalist Luke Miller added to Relix about the album filled with ample use of vintage synthesizers. “Lotus is kind of a group that can encompass a lot of different musical styles. If we can limit something, in this case the time and musical palette, it can focus the project.” Stream Frames Per Second below and check out a trailer for the LP:
