IT'S ABOUT FUCKING TIME (OR: NEW DRIVE-BY TRUCKER ALBUM NEWS)

No, a new album isn’t in the can but they are working on it. As of now it’s untitled and about 14 demo cuts have been made. One thing that caught my eye in an article about it in The Daily Times was the following:

Fans can count on one thing, however — it’s gonna be loud.

“I feel it’s time to make a big, loud, rowdy rock record,” Hood said. “There were certainly moments on ‘Brighter’ that were very much big loud rock songs, but there’s also a lot of quieter moments on there. It’s all over the map and kind of eclectic — intentionally so — and I think the next one will be a little more succinct and a little more upbeat and rocking.

Thank God! A loud rock and roll record (it’s about fucking time)! Let’s hope that vision makes it from the demo stage to the mastering stage.

Drive-By Truckers – Sink Hole

  1. This news has me more excited than a 13 year old in a strip club. The gradual pussification of the ‘Truckers has been a source of sorrow in my life and it makes it increasingly hard to be a die hard fan.

    After “Blessing” I considered retrieving the “Seal of the State of Rock” T-shirt from my closest and tearing it asunder. This was how much songs like “You and Your Crystal Meth” and any song with that broad singing bothered me.

    BTW, terrific blog… I found it by googling DTB lyrics out of boredom and I’ve been hooked ever since.
