Drive-By Truckers - The Big To-Do

"Drive-By Truckers are the best rock band in America."

The Drive-By Truckers are planning to release a new album on March 16th via there new record label ATO. Here's a picture that could very well be the cover for the new album, looks to be from the same artist.

According to their website: The inspiration for The Big To-Do came to the band during their time on the road. "We've often set our songs and albums in different periods of time, but this one finds us directly in our present. Riding all through the highways of America (and Europe) trying to make sense of a very different world than the one we grew up in," says Hood. "I don't write a lot of songs on the road, but I did more than usual on this album and many more were inspired by or set there, either in a literal sense or something I witnessed or heard about while I was out there."

Patterson Hood: "It's very much a rock album. Very melodic and more rocking than anything we've done since disc 2 of Southern Rock Opera."
