Using a mixture of country and rock, Drive-by Truckers is an alternative country band with over a 2 decade long history of success. Founded out of Athens Georgia in 1996, the band has been producing albums every other year. In current times however, the band wants to focus the subjects of their songs on real- world current justice. They took their longest break from producing an album during these past 4 years, and observed the political turmoil going on in America today.
Their response is their most current album, The Unraveling, an album dedicated to discussing the injustices the band witnessed. Though singles were still produced to convey their political stance, such as The Perilous Night, in 2018. The band hopes to evoke questions about how certain actions can be allowed to occur in our country, and how we can make the effort to change them.
Long time fans of Drive-by Truckers will be excited to see them return after their 3 and ½ year hiatus. Be sure to hear their newest album live.
