LANco Adds More Festival Dates, Debut Single Among Shazam’s Songs Of The Summer

On the heels of the release of their self-titled EP two months ago, Arista Nashville band LANco began an RV cross-country caravan with multiple festival and concert stops. And, the trek continues with the addition of these forthcoming festival dates in bold below (previously announced festivals also included):

June 17 Windy City Lake Shake, Chicago, IL
July 16 Faster Horses, Brooklyn, MI
July 29 Watershed Festival, Quincy, WA
July 31 Lollapalooza, Chicago, IL
August 5 Watershed Festival, Quincy, WA
August 12 Williamette Country Music Festival, Brownsville, OR
October 7 Austin City Limits, Austin, TX

Previously, the 5-man group performed at SXSW in Austin, TX; Tortuga Music Festival in Ft. Lauderdale, FL and CMA Music Fest in Nashville, TN. CMA Music Fest was LANco’s second appearance in Music City this year, as they kicked off 2016 at the New Years Eve Bash On Broadway before thousands of country fans.

On Monday, the Arista Nashville group launches a weekly video series, LANco: The Lives We Lead. This new series sets up the official country radio impact of their debut single, “Long Live Tonight,” on July 11.  Link here for an advance look at the series on Facebook and hosted on LANco’s YouTube channel.



LANco’s 4-song Extended Play, including their summer smash, “Long Live Tonight,” can be downloaded here.

In a recently published Billboard exclusive article, “Shazam Predicts The Songs Of Summer,” Shazam CEO Rich Riley says, “’Long Live Tonight’ is going to be one of the surprise songs of the summer.” Riley continues, “This year was particularly tough as there are so many great songs with breakout potential. The 2016 list includes superstars like Keith Urban and emerging artists like LANco.” The Arista Nashville group’s debut single and Urban’s “Wasted Time” are the only country songs on the list which includes the current smash hits by Drake, Justin Timberlake, Calvin Harris and Rihanna, among others.

Five best friends, LANco is Brandon Lancaster (lead vocals), Chandler Baldwin (bass), Jared Hampton (keyboards, banjo), Tripp Howell (drums), and Eric Steedly (lead guitar), and you can get a snapshot of the band in a special “Meet LANco” video online here.
