 Lucero details new album: Women & Work

Punk-infused alt-country rockers Lucero have always sought to capture the spirit of their Memphis home on record. However, the sextet looks to take one step closer in becoming “the 21st century voice of that great musical city,” according to a press release, with the March 13th release of their ATO Records debut, Women & Work.

The album collects 11 original cuts that “range from barroom brawlers to lonesome laments, and cut deeper than anything else in the band’s extensive catalog.” [sic] Women & Work sees the band joined once more by a duo of legendary horn players, Scott Thompson (Cat Power, Al Green) and Jim Spake (Solomon Burke, Ray Charles). Also re-teaming with Lucero for the new effort is producer Ted Hutt, who has logged time for The Gaslight Anthem and Flogging Molly, among others.

As they’ve gained a reputation for doing, Lucero will embark on a massive tour throughout 2012, with over 40 shows announced thus far. Those dates include bills with the likes of Built To Spill, Dinosaur Feathers, J. Roddy Walston & The Business, and more, plus some time at South by Southwest. Behold their current itinerary below, preceded by the Women & Work tracklist.
