Juliette Lewis has announced a couple of little UK shows in July in the lead up to her full winter tour. No longer with ‘The Licks’, Juliette has formed a new backing band called The New Romantiques to compliment what she says is a new direction for her musically.
Produced with Omar Rodriguez-Lopez of Mars Volta fame, Terra Incognita is will be out this autumn. The press release says that Juliette and Omar have worked together in creating an album of romance and tragedy, dreams and disillusionment.
“My next album will be so sonically different than anything I’ve done before and captures many flavors of my emotional life and voice. Do I have fear? Of course but it is exactly what gets me going. Because I L O V E what I’m doing,” she said. And we believe her.

Also, Juliette talked to NME about the demise of The Licks and the evolution of The New Romantiques at SXSW 2009 in Austin. “The thing with The Licks was that I was always trying to keep it on the road,” she said. “Making records was secondary, so even the records we made, they were okay, but they were always better as a live band. So this is the first time I wanted to really take my time, and the only thing is the music has to be fueled by crazy passion and inspiration. If other people around you don’t have that, I can’t try to inspire everybody, that’s not my job. My job is just to be a songwriter.” Watch the interview below.
