Rooted in the southern storytelling of Country music with the modern punch of rock & roll, Hallelujah Nights serves as LANCO’s coming-of-age debut album. Equal parts nostalgic and forward-thinking, lead singer Brandon Lancaster wrote all eleven songs and found success breathing new life into universal themes. The album features LANCO’s first-ever Billboard Country #1 ‘Greatest Love Story.’
“We all go through more of the same experiences than we realize 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.”
LANCO’s story begins in the small towns where all five bandmates – 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, LANCO’s focused on capturing the spirit of their exuberant live shows, sharing the same goal to make everything sound authentic and human. If a particular song didn’t click, LANCO would take it on the road and perform the new tune every night until things fell into place.
