Geffen Records recording artists Lifehouse released their sixth album, Almería. Produced by long-time collaborator Jude Cole, Almería finds Lifehouse expanding and stretching out their sound.
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 the Los Angeles music scene during the late 1990s. "Hanging By a Moment," a No. 1 alternative hit, crossed over to become Top 40's Most Played Song of 2001, and 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. The band's last album, Smoke & Mirrors, debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard Top 200 and was certified Platinum.
The band has now charted 15 consecutive singles at multiple formats, making them one of the most successful bands of the 21st century to date.
