Described as a "musically powerful and conceptually dazzling work," Grace Potter & the Nocturnals' fourth studio LP, The Lion The Beast The Beat, is full of pop catchy power ballads and arena rockers produced by Jim Scott (Tom Petty, Wilco), and featuring a knob-turning sit-in by Grammy-winning Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys on the track, "Loneliest Soul." Auerbach also helped write first single "Never go Back"; its video premiered on VH1 and helped further launch Potter’s sexy howl into the national spotlight. This tour around, Grace and Co. compiles each night's setlist based on song requests received via Twitter. Fans submit suggestions via twitter.com/gracepotter and use the hashtag #GPNsetlists.
