"Country punks Lucero could be the hardest working band around. They’re constantly on tour, they're constantly writing music... there's no stopping them!" - FUSE

"While they’ve seen plenty of success with their studio albums, it’s on the stage that raspy-voiced Ben Nichols and the Memphis-based band connect most with their audience." - Paste Magazine
Lucero’s entire catalog, from 2000’s The Attic Tapes to 2013’s Texas & Tennessee EP, is going to be represented on their first-ever live album, Live from Atlanta, which will be released on August 12th and clocks in at over two impressive hours. “You should’ve seen us turn that record in,” laughs guitarist Brian Venable. “They wanted an 88-minute live record. But we were like, ‘That’s just not a live Lucero show!”

Courtesy of Paste you can now listen to and share the record’s live version of “Sweet Little Thing”, a classic ballad originally from the band’s sophomore effort Tennessee. Check it out HERE.

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 six-piece cover 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. It might even make fans out of non-believers (especially if they like whiskey). Because like bassist John C. Stubblefield always says, “Lucero loves you.”
