Drive-By Truckers Ready New Album


Go-Go Boots, the 11th studio album by Drive-By Truckers, will be released Feb. 15.

The album will feature more of the band’s tried-and-true Southern sounds. “We recorded nearly 40 songs last year and into this year and fairly early on divided it into two separate albums,” Patterson Hood writes in a statement. “The Big To-Do, released first, was the more straightforward rock album. Go-Go Boots is what I sometimes (semi-jokingly) refer to as our country, soul, and murder ballad album. Those elements definitely play into it, but it’s a little more open ended than that.”

In addition to Go-Go Boots, the band will release a documentary called The Secret to a Happy Ending, which will also be available on Feb. 15 via iTunes. On Record Store Day (Nov. 26), they’ll offer up a limited edition 10” of “Thanksgiving Filter” and “Used To Be A Cop” for sale at independent record stores.
