Lucero, 'Should've Learned by Now'

The new album from Lucero, 'Should've Learned by Now' will be available February 24 from Liberty and Lament Records, Produced by Matt Ross-Spang (John Prine, Jason Isbell, Margo Price)

"We were on tour in Georgia and a hurricane was coming through. Someone asked where our next show was and we said 'Macon, if we make it.' I was aiming for a song kind of like Husker Du’s 'Dead Set on Destruction.' I don’t think I hit that mark but the song is fun to play and sing. It also has a kind of Violent Femmes vibe that I like. Their stuff was some of the first songs I learned to play on bass when I was 12 or 13 years old." - Lucero's Ben Nichols

Today, Memphis rock/alt-country band Lucero share the new single “Macon If We Make It” from their new album Should’ve Learned by Now, available on February 24 via Liberty & Lament/Thirty Tigers. The band’s 12th studio release finds them once again teaming up with producer and Grammy Award-winning engineer/mixer, Matt Ross-Spang (John Prine, Jason Isbell, Margo Price).

Led by the gravelly voice of singer/songwriter Ben Nichols, Lucero also features original members Brian Venable on guitar, Roy Berry on drums, John C. Stubblefield on bass and Rick Steff on keys. The group of Memphis road-dogs has maintained a large and dedicated fanbase for over 20 years, delivering a rowdy and communal live experience that is equally as exhilarating in a dive bar as it is in amphitheaters.
