The year is 2014, and more than 200 years of war and chaos has wreched havoc on the world. After the invention of one of the most amazing machines in the last millennia, the external combustion steam engine, things have taken a wrong turn. The world has changed in so many ways, it's hard to get ones head around it. After a long and demanding war, the world is slowly starting to recover...
We will be playing a mini-gig at the LMV festival in Lierbyen tonight. This will be our first gig in two years, and we are joined by drummer Ole Martin Nordaunet from St. Omen. Looking forward to be getting back on stage!
We are finally back in the rehersal room for the first time since Øyvind and Jørgen left the band. We have been trying out some of the new songs, as well as bringing some old songs back from the dead. Its starting to sound the way we want it to, and we’re hoping to test the material in front of you all very shortly. Stay tuned for more news in the days to come!
We are sorry to announce that Øyvind and Jürgen are leaving the band. For the last year or so, Øyvind and Jürgen have been focusing on their new band Skrømt, while Arnold, Emil and Ane have had full focus on producing new material and developing the sound of Lotus.
With the debut release closing in for Skrømt, and the new demo being close to ready for Lotus, we have come to terms with the fact that giving both band projects as much commitment as they deserve is not possible for Øyvind and Jürgen. Øyvind have been an important member of the band for eight years, and Jürgen for the last five years, having played almost every show we have had since the band were formed. We wish them all the best with Skrømt, and we are sure we’ll share stage with them in the future.
We have already started the search for new members, and we’ll keep you up to date on the progress!
