Lotus Crush are a passionate, anthemic rock outfit delivering what BuzzbandsLA called "stadium sized rock songs". The 5-piece outfit features former Driveblind vocalist Terry McDermott and former Candlebox guitarist Peter Klett. After Driveblind parted ways in 2009, Aberdeen, Scotland native McDermott relocated to New Orleans with his family. The band strengthened with the addition of Jimmy's Chicken Shack guitarist Island Styles and Seattle pair; bassist Mark Mattrey and drummer Ehssan Karimi.
The group began writing and recording in Seattle as Lotus Crush in late 2009. In 2011 Lotus Crush released their debut album, Half-Light Morning, on Fontana. However, a year later McDermott began competing on the NBC reality singing competition The Voice, where he ultimately finished as the show's first male runner-up. Despite his solo success, McDermott decided to stick with Lotus Crush, and in 2015 the group returned to record it's sophomore album, Rabbit Hole, featuring the single "Hearts and Minds", which featured iconic actor C Thomas Howell as the villain in a dystopian near future.
Lotus Crush will release Rabbit Hole in both the UK and mainland Europe in late summer 2016 having already successfully toured throughout the continent. The band will also support the release of their “Live At The Columbia City Theatre” record in late 2016.
