Lanco are kicking off life post-COVID-19 pandemic with a new musical chapter and a tour to match. The country group have announced details for their five-song Honky-Tonk Hippies EP, which is due out in full on July 2 and was recorded at legendary northern Alabama destination Fame Studios.

"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."

At least two members of the band had a hand in writing every track on the project, with Lancaster and band mate Tate Howell co-penning all five. While fans will have to wait until July to hear the EP in full, 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.

This fall, Lanco will take their show on the road, bringing the five new tracks along with other recent releases like "Near Mrs." and "Save Me" to the stage on their headlining Fall 2021 Honky-Tonk Hippies Tour. The jaunt launches on Sept. 12 in Isle of Palms, S.C., at the Wind Jammer, where the band will share the stage with Ross Ellis. The tour will then continue with 30 dates across the U.S., ultimately wrapping in Colorado in December.
