LANCO sees a new tour ahead
Monday, October 28, 2019
– LANCO will hit the road in January for the What I See Tour.
The quintet announced that Overland Park, Kansas will be the first stop on Jan. 9.
The tour is named after their newly released single, which impacts Nov. 4. Tickets for the first round of dates will be available to the "FANCO" fan club on Wednesday before tickets go on sale to the public Friday on LANCO's official website.
"The idea behind 'What I See' stemmed from being on tour in the middle of nowhere in front of this little bar, and it made us realize that every town we cross has a piece of significance that resonates with people in different ways," said frontman Brandon Lancaster. "The picture that this song paints replicates those towns we perform in every day and the fans we get to see at each stop and experience those places with them. This will be the first time we get to road-test new music so I'm ready for 2020 to get here."
Tour dates are:
Jan. 9 Overland Park, KS - Kanza Hall*
Jan. 10 St. Louis, MO
Jan. 11 Indianapolis, IN - 8 Second Saloon*
Feb. 13 Grand Rapids, MI - The Intersection*

March 11 Green Bay, WI - Meyer Theatre*
March 12 Minneapolis, MN - The Fillmore
March 13 Rosemont, IL - Joe's Live*
March 14 Milwaukee, WI - The Rave*
LANCO has paved their course with the success of the 2x PLATINUM single "Greatest Love Story" and the GOLD certified hit "Born To Love You." They recently dropped two nostalgic tracks "What I See," written by frontman Brandon Lancaster, drummer Tripp Howell, bassist Chandler Baldwin and Jeremy Spillman, and "Old Camaro."

CD reviews for LANCO
LANCO's "Greatest Love Story" is a radio single saturated in undeniable warmth and sweetness. But then, the attitude in "We Do" reeks of Florida Georgia Line and the chorus to "Singin' at The Stars" also brings country music's most annoying duo to mind. LANCO is a new act, and the jury's still on just which direction this five-piece will go. Will this group follow Midland as another truly legitimate country music collective, or could they follow »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»

Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music
John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia.
But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
