Drive-By Truckers Stop By With New Album 

Wednesday, March 16, Knitting Factory

The Drive-By Truckers' new release Go-Go Boots (ATO Records) is in some ways almost a first album for the band. At drivebytruckers.com, enigmatic frontman Patterson Hood explains that Go-Go Boots is "In many ways the polar opposite side of what we do as a band ... it's the album where we finally fully embrace the music of our original hometown area of Muscle Shoals, [Alabama], exploring the waters of country/soul and that mystical intersection between to two dominate poles of our shared musical heritage."

That heritage is expressed in 14 twang-filled tracks that are either yarns set to music or music wrapped around tales of small towns, sex and murder. The gutsy title track is the story of a philandering preacher who would rather hire someone to kill his wife than divorce her and disgrace himself in front of God and church.
