first_imgFans have been eagerly awaiting Lotus’ latest project, the release of their first-ever full-length concert film, which is due out on Monday, September 4th. The concert film captures the jamtronica act’s performance at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado, back on September 19th, 2014. That show was particularly special, as it saw guest vocalist Gabe Otto of Denver group Pan Astral join the group for a special “Talking Heads Deconstructed” set, featuring Talking Heads classics reimagined in Lotus’ signature style.As bassist Jesse Miller noted in a press release, “The origins of this show start earlier in 2014 when we were approached by a festival to put together a special set. After a few different ideas, we landed on the Talking Heads Deconstructed idea; mixing in our styles and melodies. I was little bit wary of the idea initially because the Talking Heads are covered by so many bands in our scene. But, when it all came together, I thought we were able to give these covers a unique spin that really made these songs feel like our own.”After an unexpected three-year-long process to secure the licensing rights to use the Talking Heads’ songs in their film, Lotus has finally pulled it off and is getting ready to share their film debut with the world. Live at Red Rocks, September 19, 2014 is due out Monday, September 4th, with pre-orders available on the group’s website.
