Drive-By Truckers have announced their 14th album, Welcome 2 Club XIII, due July 3 via ATO (pre-order). The first single is the title track, an homage to the Muscle Shoals honky-tonk where DBT founders Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley's former band Adam’s House Cat got their start. "There were no cool bars in town and Club XIII was the best we had," Patterson said, "but it wasn’t all that good, and our band wasn’t particularly liked there. From time to time the owner would throw us a Wednesday night or let us open for a hair-metal band we were a terrible fit for, and everyone would hang out outside until we were done playing. It wasn’t very funny at the time, but it’s funny to us now."

"Cooley and I have been playing together for 37 years now," Patterson adds. "That first band might have failed miserably on a commercial level, but I’m really proud of what we did back then. It had a lot to do with who we ended up becoming."

The album was produced by longtime DBT collaborator David Barbe, and it features backing vocals by Margo Price, R.E.M.'s Mike Mills, and Schaefer Llana. Watch the Jason Shevchuk-directed video for the title track and check out the tracklist below.

DBT are also touring North America this spring with Lydia Loveless, including an Asbury Park show on April 29 at The Stone Pony. They've got another US run in the summer, including a Long Island show on August 8 at Patchogue Theatre (no opener announced). All dates are listed below.
