With his eagerly anticipated new LP 'Southeastern' out October 7th on Southeastern/Thirty Tigers and an unmissable show at St. Pancras Old Church August 28th, Jason Isbell is all set to scorch hearts across the land this year.
Featuring 12 tracks of the very finest self-penned Americana-led confessionals, 'Southeastern' is a painfully candid meditation on alcoholism and a cathartic release for Isbell who faced his demons and triumphed.
US critics have been unanimous in their praise for the record, with The New Yorker calling it "powerfully personal both in sound and in story" and the New York Times Magazine praising Isbell as "One of America's thoroughbred songwriters."
Recorded in Nashville and produced by Dave Cobb (Jamey Johnson, The Secret Sisters), the erstwhile Drive By Truckers scribe/guitarist Isbell enlisted the help of his band The 400 Unit, including Derry de Borja on keyboards and Chad Gamble on drums. It's the follow-up to 2007's celebrated solo debut 'Sirens of the Ditch'.
After hitting the UK with Ryan Adams last year - including an unforgettable show at the London Palladium - Isbell embarks on his own headline UK tour later this year. Dates to be announced shortly - stay tuned.
