Lifehouse to Debut Top 10 Single “Halfway Gone” Tonight on the Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien
Fifth Studio Album Smoke & Mirrors to be Released March 2nd
Santa Monica, California, January 15, 2010 – As Lifehouse gears up for the release of their fifth studio set, Smoke & Mirrors, on Geffen Records March 2nd, they will debut their top 10 single “Halfway Gone” on the Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien tonight, Friday, January 15th. Tune in to NBC at 11:35 pm to catch their performance!
“Halfway Gone” was co-written by Lifehouse lead singer Jason Wade, Kevin Rudolf (“Let It Rock”) and producer Jude Cole (Rocco Deluca, Beth Orton) and is THE fastest growing single of Lifehouse’s career at Hot AC radio – currently at #9 on that chart. The single was serviced to Top 40 radio this week and will surely become a pop smash as well.
With Smoke & Mirrors, lead singer/guitarist Wade, drummer Ricky Woolstenhulme Jr., bassist Bryce Soderberg, guitarist Ben Carey and producer Cole have created a set that combines their live sound with great record making.
Smoke & Mirrors showcases two sides of Lifehouse – songs like “Smoke & Mirrors,” “Wrecking Ball” and “Had Enough” capture the live, rock side of the band; a sound they perfected after 10 years of solid touring. Tracks like “All In,” “Here Tomorrow Gone Today” and the first single “Halfway Gone” are songs sure to be heard on the radio for years to come.
Lifehouse’s multi-platinum 2000 debut, No Name Face, produced “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 (Wade, Cole) that set a record by spending more than 60 weeks on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. 2007’s Who We Are, also produced by the Smoke & Mirrors team, included the hits “First Time,” “Whatever It Takes” and “Broken,” which combined sold over 3 million digital downloads. To date Lifehouse has sold over 5 million albums.
