Rockers Lifehouse begin life again with the Out Of The Wasteland album

CALIFORNIAN hitmakers Lifehouse have released 'Out Of The Wasteland' through their new record label Ironworks. After a lukewarm reception to the band's 'Almeria', Lifehouse refrained from touring and announced in July 2013 that they would spend time focusing on each member's respective solo project. Drummer Rick Woolstenhulme, Jr began touring with the Goo Goo Dolls; bassist Bryce Soderberg initiated a new band titled KOMOX; lead guitarist Ben Carey left the band to continue work in country rock band Elvis Monroe; and singer/songwriter Jason Wade worked on a solo project intended to be called 'Paper Cuts'.

In his home studio, Wade wrote approximately 70 songs in genres including country and singer/songwriter over the course of 18 months. Said Wade, "As soon as I wrote 'Flight' and 'Hurricane', that's when it really started to sink in that I wanted to get the band back together... Those songs started to feel like quintessential Lifehouse tracks. I called the guys up to finish the album together. This is a full circle for us. It really sees us returning to our roots." CR
