The Return of LYDIA

Beloved Gilbert, AZ indie rockers LYDIA have announced an October 4 release date for their highly-anticipated new release, Paint It Golden.

The band led by front man, Leighton Antelman, has also unveiled the cover art and track listing for the record that marks their first new full-length since 2008’s, illuminate. An EP titled, Assailants was released in 2010, which served as the catalyst for what was supposed to be LYDIA’s farewell tour. After a string of sold out shows that found them playing to rapturous audiences every night, the band members realized it was not yet time to call it quits and officially announced they would be continuing on, ultimately recording Paint It Golden this past summer with producer Matt Malpass (Copeland, All Get Out).

I am overly excited to put out this new record. I have been holding onto a lot of these songs for years now and I didn't even know if I'd ever release them. I am truly blessed to be able to share my thoughts and ideas with so many people around the world,” says Antelman.

A tour in support of Paint It Golden will kick off on October 6th.

Lydia will be premiering the music video for the track, “Dragging Your Feet In The Mud” shortly. More details on the premiere will be announced shortly.
