Hard-touring, southern alt-country rockers Drive-By Truckers have long held a progressive fire in their belly. They’ve always been outspoken, telling a distinctly American story via craft, character, and concept, all backed by sonic ambition and social conscience.
“The Unraveling” was just released in January 2020, right before the pandemic. Their first new album in over three years, the time was among the most tumultuous our country has ever seen.
“The album earned excellent reviews (including later being named ‘Album of the Year’ by Rolling Stone in France) and we set out on the road playing shows up the east coast including NYC, Boston and DC. Unfortunately, the pandemic happened and we only completed one three-week leg of what was supposed to be a 15-month tour,” says DBT founder Patterson Hood. “In lockdown, we all did what we could. Cooley, Jay and I played numerous virtual shows from our respective homes. I wrote two new songs inspired by the BLM protests occurring around the country and the federal occupation of my adopted hometown of Portland, OR. We combined them with some tracks we had already recorded in Memphis and released “The New OK” (in October 2020). Its’ nine songs picked up where “The Unraveling” had left off, continuing the themes of an unraveling country, but also breaking away on a more personal front.”
