Drive-by Truckers share new single, touring (so are its members)


Drive-by Truckers are set to release a new single, “The Perilous Night,” which is a politically charged number that picks right up from where their 2016 album American Band left off. “I began writing it on the day the Electoral College met in December 2016 and completed it in the wake of the horrific events in Charlottesville, VA last summer,” says singer-songwriter Patterson Hood. “We recorded it in Athens, GA during a break in our fall tour and mixed it on the day Tom Petty passed away. It may be the darkest song I’ve ever written, but it’s also a dance song. Turn it up!” It’s out digitally and as a 7″ on December 15 and all proceeds go to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

The band have just announced 2018 tour dates which do not include any East Coast shows. Individual members of Drive-by Truckers will be playing solo shows this year as well. Patterson Hood‘s solo tour includes a stop at NYC’s Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 on December 1 (tickets).

Meanwhile, Jay Gonzalez’s band Jay & The Guilty Pleasures are on tour now with Eyelids and have two NYC-area shows: Jersey City’s WFMU Monty Hall on Wednesday (11/15) with Low Doses (tickets) at WFMU Monty Hall in Jersey City and Friday (11/17) at The Cape House in Brooklyn with Early Riser and Other Houses (tickets).

Mike Cooley also has solo dates coming up but none in the Northeast. Those dates, along with Patterson Hood, Jay & The Guilty Pleasures and Drive-by Truckers are listed below.
