Miss Lewis broke up with her backing band ‘The Licks’ earlier this year and now, as if nothing had happened, she’s got herself a new backing band (The New Romantiques) and has just released her latest record, ‘Terra Ingonita’.
To back up the new L.P, Lewis has announced a rather extensive world tour, spanning nearly fifty dates in all. Starting tonight, September 11th in Toronto, Ontario the tour runs right through until December 8th where she finishes in Portsmouth here in the UK.
As well as a tour, the crazy actress/rocker female has also released a new video for track four off of the Incognita record, Fantasy Bar.
Juliette was interviewed by Craig Ferguson last night, adorable as always, and performed “Fantasy Bar”. Did you missed it? Well, blessed be youtube:

Juliette Lewis has announced details for her third album, Terra Incognita.
The Hollywood actress-turned-singer, who was frontwoman of Juliette And The Licks, will unveil her new solo album on August 31.
“Because this album is so sonically different than anything I’ve done before and captures many flavours of my emotional life and voice, it needed an entirely new name,” Juliette said in a statement.
“Terra Incognita means unknown territory – and that’s where I wanted to go musically. The guitars are more wild and atmospheric. The groove is dark and deep and allow for a lot of sonic contrasts.”
She added: “It took me five years to really cut my teeth both as a performer and as a songwriter and I wanted to break all the habits I’d gotten used to and let songs develop out of a groove or simple piano notes and melody. It’s been a truly liberating and radical experience.”
Actress-singer Juliette Lewis recently sat down in the Rolling Stone studios, or a “little square room” as she jokingly called it, to perform two acoustic renditions of tracks off her latest album, Terra Incognita. The LP, which was produced by the Mars Volta’s Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, is due out September 1st. In the video above, Lewis, guitarist Chris Watson and percussionist Finnegan perform an intimate take of Terra’s closer track “Suicide Dive Bombers.”
As Rock Daily previously reported, Lewis shifted from the Licks to new moniker the New Romantiques because “this album is so sonically different than anything I’ve done before… it needed an entirely new name.” That change in sound—from the riff-heavy Licks to the atmospheric Romantiques—can be heard on the other cut Lewis performed in our studio, the bluesy “Hard Lovin’ Woman.” Rolling Stone also talked with Lewis about her new project backstage at this year’s SXSW festival, with the Kalifornia actress telling RS that Rodriguez-Lopez got involved after the two met at a music festival and bonded over their love of Federico Fellini films.
Lewis and her band are currently on tour in Europe, but the band will return stateside for a month’s worth of dates during a joint tour with Cat Power and the Pretenders starting August 7th with a show in Wallingford, Connecticut. Two more songs off Terra Incognito—the album’s title track and “Fantasy Bar,” are currently streaming on the singer’s new Licks-less MySpace page.
