New York, NY - November 27, 2012 - Geffen Records recording artists Lifehouse will release their first new album in over two years and their sixth overall on December 11th titled: Almerķa. To celebrate the band has scheduled two special performances for release week.

On December 11th, Lifehouse will perform at The Gramercy in New York City and on December 18th in Los Angeles at the Troubadour. Tickets for both shows are on sale now.

Produced by long time collaborator Jude Cole, Almerķa finds Lifehouse expanding and stretching out the Lifehouse "sound."

"We just felt like some sounds needed to evolve," remarked lead singer Jason Wade. "We knew we had to shake things up creatively and go back to the drawing board, try something new. It was a liberating experience; I feel like we can take all our different musical influences and they can kind of coalesce together and live in the same space without any rules or guidelines. This album was just very in-the-moment, or should I say letting moments happen instead of forcing something and trying to manipulate it." The picturesque Spanish town of Almerķa rests on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea and was the location for the filming of many of the classic spaghetti westerns filmed in the mid 1960's. The studio at Box Canyon, CA where Lifehouse recorded Almerķa had a similar arid landscape.

Lifehouse: singer Jason Wade, drummer Rick Woolstenhulme, Jr., bassist Bryce Soderberg and guitarist Ben Carey -- have made earnestness and soul-searching their calling card since emerging from Los Angeles during the late 90s, first as Blyss and since 2000 as Lifehouse. "Hanging By a Moment" a #1 alternative hit which crossed over to become Top 40's Most Played Song of 2001, while 2002's Stanley Climbfall solidified the band as a touring force. Their 2005 self-titled platinum effort yielded "You and Me," a giant hit ballad that set a record by spending more than 60 weeks on Billboard's Hot 100 chart. 2007's Who We Are, included the hits "First Time," "Whatever It Takes" and "Broken," which combined sold over 3 million digital downloads. The band's last album, Smoke & Mirrors debuted at #6 on the Billboard Top 200 and was certified Platinum. The band has now charted fifteen consecutive singles at multiple formats making them one of the most successful bands of the 21st century to date.

Almerķa is available for special pre-order options now through the band's website at: www.lifehousemusic.com
