Drive-By Truckers will release their new album 'English Oceans' through ATO Records on 3rd March. 'English Oceans', the band's 12th release, is an elegantly balanced and deeply engaged new effort that finds the group refreshed and firing on all cylinders. "It can go from this chainsaw rock 'n' roll to this very delicate, pretty-sounding stuff," says Mike Cooley.
'English Oceans' was recorded over 13 days at Chase Park Transduction Studios in Athens, GA with their longtime producer, David Barbe. Cooley fans will be happy that he brought six new songs to the sessions and this record marks the first time that Cooley sings a song penned by Patterson Hood on "Til He's Dead or Rises."
Drive-By Truckers will return to the UK in May for a handful of shows, including an appearance at London's Shepherd's Bush Empire. The band will perform their annual homecoming shows at the 40 Watt in Athens in February.
