January can’t come soon enough with this record waiting for you.
LANCO’s story begins in the small towns where all five bandmates —lead singer Brandon Lancaster, bassist Chandler Baldwin, multi-instrumentalist Jared Hampton, drummer Tripp Howell and lead guitarist Eric Steedly — were raised. Spread across Tennessee, Kentucky and Georgia, they lived normal lives full of late nights, long weekends, hard lessons and young love.
Alongside award-winning producer Jay Joyce (Little Big Town, Brandy Clark, Brothers Osborne), LANCO focused on capturing the spirit of their exuberant live shows, sharing the same goal to make everything sound authentic and human with their debut album Hallelujah Nights.
Rooted in the southern storytelling of Country music with the modern punch of rock & roll, Hallelujah Nights serves as LANCO’s debut record is set for release worldwide on 19 January 2018. Equal parts nostalgic and forward-thinking, lead singer Brandon Lancaster wrote all eleven songs.
“We all go through more of the same experiences than we realise and songwriting is a process of observing those moments,” said Lancaster. “Our stories have different people, different names, different places, but they all have the same emotions attached to them. It’s not fantasy-related. To me, this album is about glorifying the reality of life” he continues.
You can get a first taste of what Hallelujah Nights is going to sound like with the band’s album trailer:
With their self-titled EP reaching millions of streams it would be no surprise if their debut record shoots LANCO into country music superstardom in 2018. From what we’ve heard so far the new year will be a busy one for the five boys from the Southern USA and we’re here for the ride.
