Still riding the wave from the tremendously successful 20-year anniversary birthday bash in their hometown of Memphis, Tennessee, Lucero have officially announced plans for a brand-new full-length album on a brand-new label home.
Entitled Among The Ghosts, the album is slated for release on August 3rd via Thirty Tigers. It marks the band’s first album since 2015’s All A Man Should Do. And while it might also be the band’s first album since the birth of frontman Ben Nichols’ first child, don’t assume the band has flipped to writing only happy songs. Says Nichols: “As it turns out, I think Among the Ghosts is probably one of the darker records we’ve ever made. Possibly the darkest if not the saddest. Not sure if that’s because I got married and had a daughter or in spite of it. It’s dark but it’s big and tough at the same time. And I’m happier than I’ve ever been in my life.”
Pre-orders for Among The Ghosts are available here, and they include some pretty cool, band-member specific options. As a bonus, you can check out the debut of not one, but TWO new tracks, “To My Dearest Wife” and “For The Lonely Ones,” right here. You can also check out the cover art for Among The Ghosts down below. It’s a haunting, tintype picture of a flooded-out Mt. Zion Baptist Church No. 1 in rural Mississippi, taken by the friend and fellow fan Michael Foster.
