LUCERO • That Much Further West • LP • Pre-Order
Liberty & Lament Records
Release date: 3. November 2023
It would be difficult to find a band that is more self-aware than longtime touring band Lucero. Since forming in Memphis in the late 90's, Lucero's base musical hallmarks have remained similar to the band's initial sound established with their first record The Attic Tapes. In the history of their expansive discography, Lucero has evolved and embraced everything from souther rock to Stax-inspired Memphis soul, whilst simultaneously maintaining their distinctive sonic foundations. Years later, dedicated fans of the group still flock to hear the band's punchy driving rhythms, punk-rooted guitar licks, and lyrics that evoke the whiskey drenched sentimentality of Americana singer-songwriters.
Originally released in 2003, "That Much Further West" garnered positive reviews and helped launch the band into the next phase of their career. The original LP has been out of print for years, and has been remastered and exclusively repressed for the 20th anniversary.
