Uncle Lucius

Austin’s Uncle Lucius celebrates its independence with a highly-anticipated fourth album, The Light, to be released June 9, 2015 on Boo Clap/Thirty Tigers

“We had a party in the motel parking lot,” drummer Josh Greco remembers with a smile. Over some warm Lone Star, the road-weary band bid farewell to Nashville machinations, though the way ahead was entirely uncharted. Only the perils of independence were apparent.
