LANCO Stops at Dusty Armadillo on Honk-Tonk Hippies Tour


Lanco is heading full steam ahead with their post pandemic plans by releasing a five-song EP, Honky-Tonk Hippies and later this fall will embark on a tour of the same name. The EP is due to be released on July 2 and the tour will kick off on Sept. 12, with a tour stop at Dusty Armadillo in Rootstown on Nov. 13.

“For one band, the two things we love more than anything are playing shows and being in the studio,” explains Lanco frontman Brandon Lancaster. “So the minute we were cleared, we booked Fame Studios and started planning this tour. Seeing the dates on a calendar helped us visualize being back onstage, and these songs reflect that feeling. We tracked everything live with all our pent-up energy, and it won’t be long until we’re out there with the fans crowd-surfing to it.”

Two members of the group, Lancaster and band mate Tate Howell, co-wrote all five tracks on the EP. Most fans will have to wait until July to hear the EP in full, but those who sign up for the group’s “Fanco” fan club membership will get immediate access to the title track of of Honky-Tonk Hippies.

Their headlining tour will start on Sept. 12 in Isle of Palms, S.C., at the Wind Jammer, where the band will share the stage with Ross Ellis. The 30-date tour will see the band travel the U.S., ultimately wrapping in Colorado in December.
