Drive-By Truckers are good for a temperature check of the country’s psyche every few years. The country-rockers are feeling pretty low about the damage wrought by Donald Trump and they’re railing against in their new album The Unraveling.
Almost echoing the title of George Packer’s landmark look at the corrosion of norms in the United States (2013’s The Unwinding), the band’s Patterson Hood said the album is a mixture of personal feeling and political polemics.
“The past three-and-a-half years were among the most tumultuous our country has ever seen and the duality between the generally positive state of affairs within our band while watching so many things we care about being decimated and destroyed all around us informed the writing of this album to the core,” band member Patterson Hood said.
“While a quick glance might imply that we’re picking up where 2016’s AMERICAN BAND album left off, the differences are as telling as the similarities. If the last one was a warning shot hinting at a coming storm, this one was written in the wreckage and aftermath. I’ve always said that all of our records are political but I’ve also said that ‘politics is personal’. With that in mind, this album is especially personal.”
Drive-By Truckers will launch a massive tour behind the new project, starting on January 16 at Boulder’s Fox Theater. Throughout the tour, they’ll play everything from festival sets at Shaky Knees to multi-night stands at Athens’ 40 Watt Club, DC’s 9:30 Club and Denver’s Gothic Theatre, among others.
Take a look at the announced dates below. Tickets go on sale November 21.
