Pop band Lucius has announced the latest leg of its "Live Nudes" tour, an all-acoustic run in support of the stripped-back 2018 album Nudes. The tour is kicking off on May 1 at Cincinnati's Memorial Hall.

Tickets for the opening date of Lucius' tour — which will feature special guests Pure Bathing Culture — go on sale this Friday (Feb. 1) at 10 a.m. Tickets are $46, $41, $36 and $31. Visit memorialhallotr.com for details.

The roots of Lucius began when singers Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig met while attending Berklee College Of Music in Boston more than a decade ago. The group has since built up binders full of critical acclaim and a hardcore following (including fans who copy the co-lead singers' distinct look when attending shows).

The group's "Live Nudes" tour comes after Wolfe and Laessig completed a two-year stint as back-up singers on Roger Waters' extensive world tour, which wrapped in December. Lucius follows up its headlining run with a support slot for Lord Huron at a sold-out Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado, as well as four shows opening for Jackson Browne in New York City this June.
