A lot has happened in the world of St Lucifer since they last graced the stage of Foundations 2016. Two albums, two tours (the second of which they are spending most of 2019 out on the road for) and some significant line-up changes – with original drummer Charlie Bergmann and co-lead-vocalist Alex Lee amicably departing – and former Actioner Directe/Syd.31 lead guitarist Charlotte Winchcombe (aka Dirty Mice) and drummer/vocalist Alice Class stepping into the breach.
Their formidable second LP ‘Music Is Violence’ was released on AnalogueTrash in late 2018 – a widescreen fourteen track rollercoaster of an album – taking in electro/punk/noise/pop/spoken-word/doom/synth-wave/new-wave/no-wave and quite possibly the kitchen sink.
Their reputation as a must-see live act has been cemented through the aforementioned tours – to the extent that they return to Foundations with an assured confidence – bigger/brighter and louder – yet still recognisable as the plucky upstarts that invaded the main stage back on the first night of Foundations 2016.
St Lucifer will be appearing on the Peer Hat stage on the Saturday night of Foundations 2019.
