Attention Terry Mac and Candlebox fans!
Alt rockers Lotus Crush released Rabbit Hole earlier this year. Did you miss it? Then consider this your alarm clock since you snoozed! No more snooze buttons. It's time to wake up from that slumber and get some Lotus Crush flowing in your ears and through your veins.
If you are not familiar with these dudes, well, let's fix that and tell you three reasons you need to check them out.
1. The band is awesome. It features Scotland-born vocalist Terry McDermott, who shot to fame as a member of Team Blake and a Season 3 runner-up on NBC's hit The Voice, along with former Candlebox members.
2. The band's sophomore effort Rabbit Hole, is out now via Cavigold Records. Watch the band's video for "Hearts and Minds," featuring actor C. Thomas Howell, below. Yes, your read that right. We said C. Thomas Howell, the actor from Soul Man and The Outsiders. He is right up there with Corey Feldman in terms of iconic '80s stars and he crushes it in this video. You HAVE to watch it! C.TH, yo!
3. Their history is rich and their chemistry cannot be denied. Back in 2006, McDermott was fronting a band called Driveblind, who had just dropped their self-titled, major label debut. Invited to support multi-platinum alternative rock luminaries Candlebox on tour, the frontman forged an instant bond with Candlebox's members, sharing a love for Pink Floyd, The Verve and other British heavyweights. Unfortunately, Driveblind disbanded, with McDermott relocating to New Orleans. However, on a whim in 2010, he reached out to his comrades about doing a project together and thus Lotus Crush were born with Peter Klett and Scott Mercado. They released Half Light Morning in 2011 and began gigging. They paused, rebooted in 2014 and now they are back.
Okay, so let's get a look at C. Thomas Howell in that "Hearts and Minds" video, shall we?
Great actor, awesome music! That's a combo we like here at ARTISTdirect.
Who has a Crush? A Lotus Crush!?
