Grace Potter & The Nocturnals: 4th Studio Album Due Out on June 12th!

The Lion The Beast The Beat, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals’ fourth studio album for Hollywood Records, will be released June 12. The musically powerful and conceptually dazzling work was produced by Jim Scott (Tom Petty, Wilco, the Tedeschi Trucks Band’s 2012 Grammy winner Revelator) and Potter at Scott’s studio PLYRZ in Santa Clarita, CA, with the exception of “Loneliest Soul,” which was produced by Dan Auerbach and engineered by Collin Dupuis at Easy Eye Sounds in Nashville, TN.  David Campbell (Beck, My Morning Jacket, Jackson Browne) arranged and conducted the strings on the album. The album was mixed by fellow Vermonter and Grammy award winner Rich Costey (Foo Fighters, TV on the Radio, Bruce Springsteen’s Wrecking Ball) and mastered by Grammy award winner Bob Ludwig (David Bowie, Rolling Stones, Radiohead, Foo Fighters).

The first single from The Lion The Beast The Beat  is “Never Go Back,” written by Dan Auerbach and Grace Potter & The Nocturnals. The track goes to radio on March 23 for an April 9 impact date. GPN’s debut performance of “Never Go Back” is set for April 5 on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.  A companion video for the track will be shot in Los Angeles in April.  Go to for an exclusive first listen of “Never Go Back.”

On April 14 and 21, GPN will make their first-ever appearance at Coachella, which expands to two weekends this year.  On June 2, the band will embark on the “Brothers of the Sun” Tour with Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw.  GPN’s inclusion on the tour was a result of Grace’s duet with Chesney on their Grammy® and CMA Award-winning single and video “You and Tequila,” which was certified platinum for sales of over one million downloads.
