"Darken My Door" by Alex Mecum.
Lots of Lucero
news to report:
The limited edition blue vinyl version of "1372 Overton Park"
is available for sale on the band's website
. It comes with an mp3 download code. Other versions of the album don't come out until Oct. 6.
The video above is the first of 12 fan-made videos the band's commissioned to promote "Overton Park."
"White Water Tavern nights/old songs and cheap red wine" is one of the lyrics in "Darken My Door."
A little opinion thrown in: The horn section is going to be contentious in Lucero-fan-land, but I think it's a big, positive addition.
The band's added a series of dates recently, two that you'll probably care about: A free one in the Levitt Shell
in Memphis on Oct. 8, where they'll debut the horn section, and one at the Village
on Dec. 4. Tickets aren't on-sale yet.
Ben Nichols is gonna be on our cover in October.
