After playing their first show early in 1998, Lucero recorded the songs for their self-titled debut LP in 1999 and 2000 at Dickinson's Barn in Coldwater, Mississippi, and released it in 2001. It was never pressed to vinyl, but that's about to change. For its (slightly belated) 20th anniversary, the album is getting a new vinyl edition on 180G black double vinyl. It's been remastered by Jeff Powell at Take Out Vinyl, and it's due out on February 18, 2022. Pre-order your copy HERE, and stream it below.

Lucero released a new album, When You Found Me last year, and while they were scheduled to tour the UK in January, those dates have been cancelled because of Covid. They have US shows coming up later this month, after frontman Ben Nichols plays solo set at Garwood, NJ's Crossroads on Saturday (1/8), and more shows continuing into April and May; see all dates below.
