NASHVILLE, TN – Jan. 16, 2018 – Demand for PLATINUM selling Country band LANCO has heightened as they prepare to release their debut album, HALLELUJAH NIGHTS this Friday (1/19). They kicks things off this week with a performance of their two-week smash hit “Greatest Love Story” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today (1/16, check local listings), followed by The Bachelor (1/22 at 7:00P CT on ABC). Next week, LANCO will take their new anthemic single “Born To Love You” to TODAY (1/25 at 7:00A ET/CT on NBC) and Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday for their late night debut (1/25 at 10:35P CT on ABC).
The band will also take a break from their opening slot on Chris Young’s “Losing Sleep” tour for several club performances including Gramercy Theater in New York City, the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ, PBR in Baltimore and The Bluestone in Columbus, OH. Other fan focused events include a record signing at New York City’s new Opry City Stage Wednesday (1/24 @ 2:00P ET).
“It’s a surreal feeling for us that the wait is over and our first record will finally be out for the world to hear,” said lead singer Brandon Lancaster. “Every song on HALLELUJAH NIGHTS represents a piece of who we are and the experiences that led to this moment. What started as a dream when it was just the five of us jamming in a two-bedroom house has finally become a reality and I couldn’t ask for a better group of friends and team to go through this journey with. Most of all I’m just so excited for our fans to have this music and I hope this body of work truly inspires them.”

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. Equal parts nostalgic and forward-thinking, the record breathes new life into universal themes with their two-week No. ONE PLATINUM hit “Greatest Love Story” and its follow-up anthemic current single “Born To Love You.” They are now the only Country band to achieve a PLATINUM single prior to a debut album release. 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, Pandora, Spotify, SIRUIS XM and more, LANCO gained their status from touring the country’s top festivals with their “twangy rock, blistering guitars and chugging rhythms” (Nashville Scene) at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Watershed, Faster Horses and more.
