Lemon Bucket Orkestra presented by: LUS Fiber


Lemon Bucket Orkestra are Toronto’s original guerrilla-folk party-punk massive. The multi-award-winning ensemble has been heralded as a groundbreaking, genre-bending phenomenon by media and fans alike, and over the past 8 years have performed all over the world from WOMAD in New Zealand and Pohoda in Slovakia, to Festival D’Été in Québec City, and Luminato in Toronto. The Guardian proclaimed that their performances are “gorgeously sung and passionately played” and The New York Times declared them “charismatic…handsome and ambitious.”
Equal parts exhilarating precision and reckless abandon, LBO’s live shows are a truly immersive experience – ranging from the ecstatic to the cathartic and all points in between – and they have expertly captured that unique blend of energy and emotion on their new album If I Had The Strength. Released in Canada through Outside Music in late 2017, it’s set for worldwide release via a new deal with Six Degrees Records in September 2018, and includes guest appearances from famed soprano Measha Brueggergosman, rising Latino rapper Boogát, sing-a-long phenoms Choir!Choir!Choir! and more.
The band will be busy touring the Canadian festival circuit this summer, and are heading out on a 12 date US tour in support of the Six Degrees release this fall, with shows in Chicago, New York, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Pittsburgh and more. Along with the worldwide release of the new album, LBO will also be premiering a new live video for the song Freedom. Filmed with multiple cameras at Toronto’s legendary Opera House earlier this year, it captures the band doing what they do best – taking the audience on a joyful, impassioned ride through the Balkans and beyond. Don’t miss your chance to see this dozen strong juggernaut if you can. To quote the Winnipeg Free Press, the experience will be: “Amazing, frenetic, gloriously anarchic and ultimately joyous!”
Lemon Bucket Orkestra est le premier groupe de guérilla-folk party-punk de Toronto. L’ensemble, maintes fois primé, a été acclamé comme un phénomène novateur et d’avant-garde par les médias et les fans. Au cours des huit dernières années, il s’est produit partout dans le monde, de WOMAD en Nouvelle-Zélande et Pohoda en Slovaquie au Festival D’Été à Québec et au Luminato à Toronto. À mi-chemin entre la précision exaltante et l’abandon irréfléchi, les concerts de LBO sont une véritable expérience immersive, allant de l’extatique au cathartique en passant par toutes les émotions, et ils ont su capturer avec brio ce mélange unique d’énergie et d’émotion sur leur nouvel album If I Had The Strength.
