On September 14th, 2010, Cloud Cult will be releasing Light Chasers on Earthology Records. Their eighth studio album in the last 15 years (not including Lost Songs from Lost Years), this latest full-length is their most epic and reflects a band that has explored all that life has to offer ranging from lost love to death to sorrow to healing to birth.
The first song released from the new album was “Running with the Wolves,” which came out digitally in April as part of a special Earth Day EP and instantly found fans at The Current in Minneapolis and KEXP.
Light Chasers – is the band’s first new full-length studio album since Feel Good Ghosts (Tea-Partying Through Tornadoes, April 2008).
Since 1995, Cloud Cult has been quietly crafting sprawling, cathartic albums. Founder Craig Minowa wrote, recorded and released the first Cloud Cult album The Shade Project in 1995 using the closet of his small Minneapolis apartment as his recording studio.
Over the next 15 years Cloud Cult released: Who Killed Puck (2000), They Live on the Sun (2003),Aurora Borealis (2004), Advice from the Happy Hippopotamus (2005), The Meaning of 8 (2007), and Feel Good Ghosts (Tea-partying Through Tornadoes) (2008).
In addition, they released a documentary DVD No One Said It Would Be Easy on April 21st, 2009 and at the end of 2009 the band released a double-disc reissue of They Live on the Sun and Aurora Borealis as well as a limited re-release of Lost Songs from the Lost Years (2002).
Now with their new album Light Chasers done and set for release on September 14th, the band will be doing a handful of dates with a full US tour scheduled for this fall.
