Lucero: Summer Tour


Lucero will embark on a summer tour carrying them to all corners of America in support of their current album Women & Work. Summer dates commence June 20 in Carrboro, NC, and the band will wend its way east, through the Heartland, out through the Rockies, out west for Hootenanny, and back through the Southeast and Midwest.

Lucero will also work with director Jonathan Pekar, head of the film department at Memphis' legendary Ardent Studios, on their first music video. In the clip, the band is partying with friends on the banks of a beautiful lake. All hell breaks loose when the band finds their van is missing. But instead of being furious, they get into the party spirit and much fun-loving destruction ensues.

Integrating horns, pedal steel guitar, all manner of keyboards, and even a full-on gospel chorus, Women & Work is a fully realized musical extravaganza. Drawing inspiration from Delaney & Bonnie's obscure first album, Home, on the Stax label, Lucero's ambivalence about tradition has been replaced by an exuberant embrace. Women & Work is like Arcade Fire baptized in Joe Cocker and Leon Russell's Mad Dogs & Englishmen, then warmed with Don Nix’s Alabama State Troupers.
