LANCO’s #1 HALLELUJAH NIGHTS Marks New Milestone

LANCO IS THE FIRST COUNTRY BAND IN NEARLY TEN YEARS TO OPEN AT NO. ONE
WITH DEBUT ALBUM ON BILLBOARD TOP COUNTRY ALBUMS CHART

Critics Continue to Praise HALLELUJAH NIGHTS Following Sold-Out Headlining Shows

 

PLATINUM selling breakthrough band LANCO claims the No. One spot on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart this week with HALLELUJAH NIGHTS (Arista Nashville), marking the first Country band to open at No. One with a debut album since Lady Antebellum in 2008. Featuring their two-week No. One hit “Greatest Love Story” and their new single “Born To Love You” the “collection puts an anthemic spin on young love and small-town life” (The Tennessean) and has dominated the top of the iTunes Country chart since its release.

“Over the past five years we wanted to ride this dream as far as it would go and it’s hard to find the words to describe our debut record at the top of the chart,” said lead singer Brandon Lancaster. “We couldn’t be more grateful to see people gravitating towards these new songs that represent who we are, and its been wild to see these crowds sing every line back to us.”

Following performances on The Ellen Degeneres Show, The Bachelor, the TODAY Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the “arena-rock leaning band” (Entertainment Weekly) brought their “twangy rock with blistering guitars and chugging rhythms” (Nashville Scene) to capacity crowds this past weekend at the Gramercy Theatre in NYC, Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ, PBR in Baltimore and The Bluestone in Columbus, OH. LANCO “has given fans what they’ve been waiting for” (Pop Culture) and critics continue to champion HALLELUJAH NIGHTS, which features 11 tracks co-written by the band’s lead singer and namesake, Brandon Lancaster.

“Percolating country-pop with hooks a-plenty, crunchy beats and charming vocals. Absolutely addictive.” – Music Row

“HALLELUJAH NIGHTS is a sprawling collection of stadium rock, bluesy country and intimate singer-songwriter pop that showcases the band’s disparate musical influences, all tied together by Lancaster’s voice.” – Billboard

“The human connection and deliberation truly makes HALLELUJAH NIGHTS stand out among its modern peers. There’s an actual song cycle, with the end of one track bleeding into the next. It’s possible to discern that each story is happening in the same town to the same characters.” – Rolling Stone

“The quintet seems set to bring the full-band sound back to Country radio.” – Newsday

“Connections are made from the very beginning, tying memories together and weaving a story that leaves you wanting to listen over and over again while getting lost in the music. Their songwriting and storytelling abilities are undoubtedly strong and this album showcases it.” – The Shotgun Seat

“The familiar, couched in the extraordinary….a connection to community built by the bonds of music.” – The Wichita Eagle

Rooted in the southern storytelling of Country music with the modern punch of rock & roll, HALLELUJAH NIGHTS (Arista Nashville) is LANCO’s coming-of-age debut album. They are now the only Country band to achieve a PLATINUM single prior to a debut album release, with the two week No. One “Greatest Love Story.” 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. After they crossed paths in Nashville during their early 20s, LANCO bonded over that shared southern adolescence, while hoping to build a new life in a bigger city. “Few bands have have generated as much buzz as LANCO” (Pop Culture) as their self-titled debut EP, has gained more than 100 million streams. Named “the band to watch” by Bobby Bones, CMT, Entertainment Weekly, Hits Magazine, Pandora, Rolling Stone, Spotify, SIRUIS XM and more, LANCO gained their status from touring the country’s top festivals such as Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Watershed and Faster Horses. “Trying to make it in Nashville is no easy feat, but a little determination helped LANCO go from toiling away in bars to opening for Dierks Bentley,” (Associated Press) as they will serve as direct support on his 2018 MOUNTAIN HIGH TOUR launching May 17th.

Only the Second Debut Album to Bow Top 5 So Far in 2011

Christina Perri’s debut album lovestrong. has blasted into the #4 spot on Billboard’s Top 200 after an outstanding first week of sales. The album, which hit stores on May 10th (Atlantic Records), marks quite an accomplishment for Perri, who is only the second new artist this year to debut in the Top 5 with her first album.

The strong debut comes on the success of her hits “Jar of Hearts” (over 2 million singles) and “Arms.” The latter track has made fast work climbing Hot AC radio charts, with “Jar” still spinning strong at Top 40 stations over ten months after release. The “Arms” music video is already a staple on VH1’s Top 20 Countdown, moving to Large rotation this week.
