On March 2nd Lifehouse (Jason Wade on lead vocals/guitar, Ricky Woolstenhulme Jr. on drums, Bryce Soderberg on bass and newly added guitarist Ben Carey) are set to release their fifth studio album aptly titled Smoke & Mirrors.  The title, also a song on the album, represents the melding of songs that capture the essence of the band’s live performance combined with the catchy studio tracks that we’ve come to expect from the band. 

Taking their time with the album the band collaborated with musicians like Chris Daughtry and Kevin Rudolf who lent their writing styles and vocals to the mix.  With a focus on a well-rounded album the band took their time to explore and incorporate different styles of music into each song.  The first single, “Halfway Gone” is already a radio favorite but it’s just a small taste of what Smoke & Mirrors has to offer.

The band recently announced that they’ll be hitting the road in support of the new album in late March with Daughtry and Cavo.

Drummer Ricky Woolstenhulme Jr. recently took some time to talk to us about the new album, the band’s love for the road and their upcoming stint on the VH1 Best Cruise Ever.
