The Drive-By Truckers create some of the grimiest alt-country the South has ever heard, and lately it has been in prolific fashion. After dropping The Big To-Do in March, Patterson Hood, Mike Cooley, and the rest already have a 12th album on the way. Titled Go-Go Boots, the disc will arrive on February 15, 2011.
The Truckers themselves will arrive at Fort Lauderdale's Culture Room for a stompin' good time January 20 of next year. Tickets will go on sale soon.
Just to prime the pump, County Grind has assembled four choice favorites from the extensive DBT back catalog, as well as a new song from the forthcoming album.
"Where the Devil Don't Stay" from The Dirty South (2004)
"Panties in Your Purse" from Gangstabilly (1998)
"Decoration Day" from Decoration Day (2003)
"The Three Great Alabama Icons" from Southern Rock Opera (2001)
"Used to Be a Cop" from Go-Go Boots (2011)
