The turbulent times we are currently living in have lit a fire under a lot of musicians this year, including Drive-By Truckers whose compelling new album American Band is out September 30. (Pre-orders are up.) While the title may bring to mind the wild, shirtless lyrics of Mark Farner, this is their fiery State of the Nation, pulling no punches on what they think "American Band" means in 2016. You can check out lyric videos for "Filthy and Fried" and "What It Means" and stream the whole album via NPR, below.

Drive-By Truckers will be on CBS This Morning: Saturday on October 1 which will feature a three-song performance and interview with CBS' news correspondent Anthony Mason. CBS This Morning: Saturday airs from 7-9 AM Eastern. They'll also be on tour, starting this weekend. No NYC shows currently scheduled (they played the Lowdown Hudson Music Fest this summer) but all dates, including Philadelphia's Union Transfer on November 9, are listed below.
