Drive By Truckers Upcoming New Disc The Big To-Do
Athens, Georgia’s own, The Drive By Truckers’ latest studio album--The Big To-Do-- will be released on March 16, 2010. This newest recording counts as the band’s debut release on ATO Records. Once again, Athens guru David Barbe produced this latest collection.
In the Truckers’ official statement, Patterson Hood reveals insight on the new material: “We’ve often set our songs and albums in different periods of time, but this one finds us directly in our present. Riding all through the highways of America (and Europe) trying to make sense of a very different world than the one we grew up in. I don’t write a lot of songs on the road, but I did more than usual on this album and many were inspired by or set there, either in a literal sense or something I heard about while I was out there…”
A full-on Drive By Truckers tour begins in early 2010. The Truckers also serve as the band on Booker T. Jones’ latest Potato Hole, which has been nominated for 2 Grammys. Big Times Come Soon…
