Lifehouse: Not Just Smoke & Mirrors

Maximum Performance

Back and stronger than ever, Lifehouse has just seen their brand new album Smoke & Mirrors enter the Top 10 in its first week of release--the fourth in their career to do so.

In fact, that chart debut is the highest in the band's 10-year career, and an indication that the Lifehouse crew--Jason Wade, Ricky Woolstenhulme Jr., Bryce Soderberg and Ben Carey--has not slowed in the slightest since 2001, when their single "Hanging By A Moment" became the most played radio track of the year.

Here for your pleasure now is a dual helping of one of Smoke & Mirrors' finest tracks--"Halfway Gone," first exclusively performed by the band in the studio, then an additional piece showcasing the band during their recent eventful European tour.

As an added bonus, here's some great interview footage with the band from 2007 via Y! Music's Live Sets program. There's some warmth, some humor, and some passion to be seen--and those same elements are exactly what make Lifehouse's music so memorable!
