Ahead of their first trip to the UK next month for C2C Festival, platinum-selling breakthrough band LANCO claim the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart this week with ‘Hallelujah Nights’, marking the first Country band to open at No. 1 with a debut album since Lady Antebellum in 2008. Featuring their two-week No. 1 hit “Greatest Love Story” and their new single “Born To Love You” the “collection puts an anthemic spin on young love and small-town life” (The Tennessean) and has dominated the top of the iTunes Country chart since its release, including going straight to the #1 spot on the UK & Ireland’s iTunes country charts, with growing support from radio stations and shows across the country.

“Over the past five years we wanted to ride this dream as far as it would go and it’s hard to find the words to describe our debut record at the top of the chart,” said lead singer Brandon Lancaster. “We couldn’t be more grateful to see people gravitating towards these new songs that represent who we are, and its been wild to see these crowds sing every line back to us.”

Following performances on The Ellen Degeneres Show, the TODAY Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the “arena-rock leaning band” (Entertainment Weekly) brought their “twangy rock with blistering guitars and chugging rhythms” (Nashville Scene) to capacity crowds this past weekend NYC, New Jersey, Baltimore and Columbus, Ohio. LANCO “has given fans what they’ve been waiting for” (Pop Culture) and critics continue to champion ‘Hallelujah Nights’, which features 11 tracks co-written by the band’s lead singer and namesake, Brandon Lancaster.

“Percolating country-pop with hooks a-plenty, crunchy beats and charming vocals. Absolutely addictive.” – Music Row

“Hallelujah Nights is a sprawling collection of stadium rock, bluesy country and intimate singer-songwriter pop that showcases the band’s disparate musical influences, all tied together by Lancaster’s voice.” – Billboard

“The human connection and deliberation truly makes ‘Hallelujah Nights’ stand out among its modern peers. There’s an actual song cycle, with the end of one track bleeding into the next. It’s possible to discern that each story is happening in the same town to the same characters.” – Rolling Stone
