Interview: Ben Lumber and Theo Sandberg — ACRES

Acres are one of those bands who have been around for a little while, without making a lot of noise around them. It’s with delicacy that they have been conquering new listeners, one step at a time. Having now secured a faithful audience, Acres are getting ready to show the world the result of their hard work, patience and tenacity, through a much awaited debut record called ‘Lonely World’. Their lead singles Be Alone and Talking in Your Sleep are a prime example of what to expect from the album: powerful emotion-inducing soundscapes and exquisite lyrical content, that will certainly speak to you on more levels that you can think of.

A few months ago, we sat down with Ben Lumber (vocals) and Theo Sandberg (guitar) to discuss Acres‘ upcoming debut album, ‘Lonely World’ and the journey that led them to this over the past two years. They also shared thoughts on their influences and touring as a young band in this musical landscape.

Acres will go on a headline tour across Europe, in support of the new record in September, as follows:

5th – The Netherlands Eindhoven @ Dynamo
6th – Germany Essen @ Cafe Nova
7th – Germany Idar-Oberstein @ Stadenhalle
8th – Germany Karlsruhe @ Weiße Rose
