Just a couple more weeks before Lucero unleash their first-ever live album, Live From Atlanta, out August 12th. We are thrilled to share two songs off the new 32-track album. You can check out recent pieces on "Texas & Tennessee" on Esquire and "I'll Just Fall" on AV Club.
Live From Atlanta is a massive, career-spanning collection of songs recorded over three nights in Atlanta's Terminal West. It's a four-LP greatest hits collection of 32 tunes played the way they were meant to be heard, with all the distinguishing elements you'd hear at Lucero's live show-horns, pianos, and the trademark instrument of the band's live sound: whiskey-fueled audience sing-alongs.
The album's extensive assortment of songs proves that Lucero is a band for everyone. Parts country and parts folk with an added heaping of punk rock, the seven-piece covers the musical gamut. Even the band members have varying opinions on how to define their sound. "We're each playing in a completely different band. We're on stage and each playing in our own Lucero. I'm not sure that's how it works for other bands," laughs Nichols.
However you see Lucero, Live From Atlanta will satisfy your needs, whether you're in the drunken couple, one of the drunk and rowdy beardos, or the stagediving punk rocker. Whether you look towards slower Lucero songs to get you through tough times like "Nights Like These" or party jams like "All Sewn Up," Live From Atlanta has got you covered.
