The members of Lettuce and their fans are excitingly preparing themselves for the start of a new album cycle here in the coming months. The popular funk band recently announced the details for their next studio album, Elevate, which is scheduled to arrive on June 14th via Regime Music Group. The band also previously hinted at the arrival of a new documentary series chronicling the making of their forthcoming album. On Wednesday, the band followed through on their tease by sharing the first episode for the new series titled, The Krewe, in coordination with the first single from Elevate.
According to the video’s premiere on Wednesday, each of the members of Lettuce will have their own episode as part of the documentary series. Each episode will treat fans to behind-the-scenes footage from inside the recording studio during the making of the album.
The first episode focuses on bassist Erick “Jesus” Coomes, as he takes viewers into their studio space in Denver where one can apparently find an abundance mix of music, marijuana, and smile-inducing rose quartz crystals. Coomes takes time to explain the process of widdling down the list of unfinished songs to be focused on before deciding on a final tracklist for the album, in addition to sharing some raw emotion when discussing his musical upbringings. Fans can check out the video below to watch the entire first episode of The Krewe in full.
