Drive-By Truckers Announce 11th Studio Album With Rocking Single ‘Surrender Under Protest’

first_imgAthens, GA favorites Drive-By Truckers have announced that their 11th studio album, fittingly titled American Band, will be released via ATO Records on September 30, 2016. In a message posted to the band’s website, the group’s front man Patterson Hood explains the topical nature of the American Band‘s themes, in the midst of the “crazy times” that we live in, and the group’s mindset when creating the album:“We’ve always considered ourselves a political band, even when that aspect seemed to be concealed by some type of narrative device i.e. dealing with issues of race by telling a story set in the time of George Wallace or class struggles by setting “Putting People of the Moon” in the age of Reagan.This time out, there are no such diversions as these songs are mostly set front and center in the current political arena with songs dealing with our racial and cultural divisions, gun violence, mass shootings and political assholery. Once again, there is a nearly even split between the songs of Cooley and myself, with both of us bringing in songs that seem to almost imply a conversation between us about our current place in time.American Band is a sort of rock and roll call to arms as well as a musical reset button for our band and the country we live in. Most of all, we look at it as the beginnings of some conversations that we, as a people very much need to begin having if we ever hope to break through the divisions that are threatening to tear us apart. Drive-By Truckers are celebrating our twentieth anniversary as a band in an election year where some people are trying to define what it is to be American. Definitions based on some outdated ideology of prejudice and fear. We are loudly proclaiming that those people don’t speak for us. America is and always has been a land of immigrants and ideals. Ideals that we have often fallen short of achieving, but it’s the striving that has given us whatever claims to greatness we have had. That’s what America means to us and “We’re an American Band’.”The band also released a stream of “Surrender Under Protest” off the upcoming album. As Hood says in the message, “‘Surrender Under Protest’ is a Mike Cooley composition that is unlike any DBT song we’ve ever recorded, yet somehow sounds unmistakably like us. In a way, that’s pretty indicative of the album as a whole.” Listen to the new song below:A pre-order period is now underway. Check here for more details.last_img read more
