Drive-By Truckers Tour

As their first new album release in three years approaches, Drive-By Truckers has announced a 36-show concert tour spanning over three and a half months of 2014. Titled English Oceans and led by the first single, “Pauline Hawkins,” the new album is scheduled to hit shelves March 4, while the tour will begin over a month prior on January 31 with the first of two dates in Asheville, NC. The next three shows will be in the band’s homebase of Athens, GA, at the 40 Watt Club, and then they will embark on 25 more North American dates including Terminal 5 in New York City and the Civic Theatre in New Orleans. Six more European stops in May will round out the lineup.

This will be Matt Patton’s second tour as a bassist for Drive-By Truckers but his first as an official member of the band. His first tour with them in Spring 2012 was as a replacement for Shonna Tucker after she left the band between recording Go-Go Boots and the supporting tour. In addition to their new internal structure, outside bands along for the ride in support of the Drive-By Truckers tour include Blitzen Trapper, St. Paul & the Broken Bones, Willie Nelson, and Shovels & Rope. Nelson will only be joining Patterson Hood and crew for one show in Berkeley, CA, on April 12. Keep your eyes peeled for updates in case any more shows are added to the tour or more details are released about the new Drive-By Truckers album!
