Seen Your Video: "Darken My Door," First Video Off Lucero's 1372 Overton Park Released

Lucero's first release in three years, 1372 Overton Park, comes out 10/6, and from already seeing many of the tracks performed live, I can assure you it's going to be an amazing listen. Tour dates for the 'Ramblin Roadshow and Memphis Revue' as the tour is called, start back up in earnest on 10/9, and best of all, shows will include a full horn section onstage, something they've never done before! (See the list of tour dates here).

In anticipation of Overton's release, the band held a little contest for fans to make and submit videos for each of the new tracks, and the first one, "Darken My Door," was released last week. It's...interesting... to say the least, and includes one seriously messed up and brokenhearted puppet. Something really neat about it though is that a lot (maybe all?) was filmed in and around DC; keep your eyes peeled for landmarks like Ben's Chili Bowl, the National Mall, and what I'm pretty sure is the upstairs bar of the Black Cat.
