LUCERO RELEASE NEW SINGLE ‘MACON IF WE MAKE IT’, ALBUM OUT FEB 24TH

Based on the sound of the songs already released, Lucero look to be in fine form on their new album Should’ve Learned By Now, out Feb 24th via Liberty & Lament/Thirty Tigers. Inspired by an impending hurricane, the song draws parallels between a literal storm and a troubled relationship back home, before the listener is carried out like a raft on guitarist Brian Venable’s ripping guitar solo.

“We were on tour in Georgia and a hurricane was coming through. Someone asked where our next show was and we said ‘Macon, if we make it,’” explains bandleader Ben Nichols. “I was aiming for a song kind of like Husker Du’s ‘Dead Set on Destruction.’ I don’t think I hit that mark but the song is fun to play and sing. It also has a kind of Violent Femmes vibe that I like. Their stuff was some of the first songs I learned to play on bass when I was 12 or 13 years old.” 

Album review for the record coming soon…
