Headline gigs, plus supporting Alabama Shakes and a massive live set are on the docket.
Drive-By Truckers have completed their The Dirt Underneath Tour, a sit-down halfway acoustic set. But they aren't staying seated or letting grass grow under their boots. They are ready to bring the rock show back for a full fall run and a summer of dates with the Alabama Shakes.
They also have new music on the way.
Here are three reasons we are stoked about the tour and the new material!
• The band is also currently putting its finishing touches on a special five LP/three CD deluxe live album with producer David Barbe, recorded at the historic Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco. Huzzah! That's a lot of material, but fans cannot wait to gobble it up.
• The Truckers will continue to perform songs from their entire career. Yeah, that's totally a reason to go.
• The Truckers' Patterson Hood said, "Every song on this record connects with another song. I noticed Cooley's got a line in 'Primer Coat' about 'apron strings,' and I have the exact same image in one of my songs, 'Hanging On.' It goes on and on and on like that on this record, and that's a pretty good sign for things, particularly given how different our temperaments are and our styles of writing are."
