Live Nation is pleased to presentDRIVE-BY TRUCKERS at The Fillmore Auditorium on Saturday, April 19. Special guests TBA will open the show.
Show time is 8:00 PM. Doors open at 7:00 PM
Drive-By Truckers will be touring in support of their latest release, English Oceans – due in stores March 4.
English Oceans, the 12th release by Athens, Georgia’s Drive-By Truckers, is an elegantly balanced and deeply engaged new effort that finds the group refreshed and firing on all cylinders. All but one of the collection’s 13 new songs, written by singer-guitarists and co-founding members Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley, were recorded during 13 days of sessions in August 2013 with longtime producer David Barbe.
The Drive By Truckers debuted several songs from English Oceans while on tour this fall, and the group will spend a good portion of 2014 supporting their new album. Cooley is excited about playing the new material live, where the band thrives. “We’re streamlined, we’re lean” he says, “and we’re enjoying the hell out of it.”
Looking at the accomplishments of English Oceans from the perspective of DBT’s nearly three-decade history, both Cooley and Hood decline to hedge their bets on the quality of their latest work.
“You’re always hesitant to say, ‘Oh, this is the best record we’ve ever made,’” Cooley says, “because you always want to. And sometimes you say it, and sometimes you’re right, and sometimes you think, ‘Well, maybe I jumped the gun on that a little bit, I got excited.’ But I think this just might be the best record we’ve ever made.” Hood concurs enthusiastically: “It’s my favorite thing that we’ve ever done. I’m proud of our catalog – we always try to make as good a record as we can make. Sometimes things just work. This time, we made kind of a magical record. I’ve always felt that Decoration Day was our best record, and this is the first one that I think is a better record than that was. Every piece of the puzzle fit.”
