@TEAMLVLF Return to North America for National Tour

 "..a slick marvel of blue-eyed nü-R&B, Lovelife have more in common with The Weeknd and 80's electro-funk than anything back home across the pond" - Entertainment Weekly

"Frontman Lee Newell did not belong on The Echo's stage; he belongs in stadiums...it was clear this band is determined for greatness." - Best New Bands [Live Review in LA]

Brooklyn via London synth-pop group Lovelife are returning to North America for a run of dates with LA pop duo Capital Cities, kicking off tonight, April 23rd in Phoenix, AZ before they join R&B-pop quintet The Neighbourhood on the west coast on May 20th. Coming off a successful coast-to-coast tour in March, including a week of packed-out shows at this year's SXSW, the band recently put the finishing touches on their third EP, Stateless, to be released on June 11. The EP includes the single, 'Dying To Start Again,' which premiered at Noisey, as well as the track 'Every Minute,' which will be featured on a limited edition split 7" with The Neighbourhood, available on tour.

Lovelife, aka Lee Newell and his compatriot Ally Young, spent half of 2012 in New York City, where they played a string of dates in and around the city capped by a set of breakout performances at CMJ Music Marathon, earning praise from Yours Tru.ly, Under the Radar, Entertainment Weekly, and more. The band released two self-produced EPs in 2012 (El Regreso and The Fourth Floor), the latter on UK label National Anthem (HAIM, Chvrches), receiving over 250,000 plays on SoundCloud and 25,000 downloads, and have performed with Fitz and the Tantrums, St. Lucia, Flume and more. The band also debuted a new video for their single 'Your New Beloved' with MTV Hive last month, which went Top 5 on the Hype Machine.

Lovelife utilizes swirling synth pads, impassioned vocals and robust, precise beats to create a blend of smooth, brooding R&B and shimmering pop with more substance than most. Their infectious hooks and slick production have drawn a legion of fans in their short existence, which is poised to grow even further after their return to the US.They've also done official remixes for The Killers, Neon Trees, Maroon 5 and Imagine Dragons, and there are more in the works, along with a new album of original material later this year.
