Drive By Truckers Debut “Pauline Hawkins” From English Oceans, Announce Tour

Drive-By Truckers will release their new album, English Oceans, on March 4th via ATO Records. The follow-up to 2011′s Go-Go Boots is said to be a return to hard rock form  It was recorded with longtime producer David Barbe at Chase Park Studios in Athens, GA.

“Pauline  Hawkins” is the debut track and was inspired by Willy Vlautin’s new book, The Free. ”I had loved his first three novels and we had become pen pals in the last couple of years,” co-frontman Patterson Hood told Rolling Stone. “I read it in about three sittings. Wonderful book.” He was especially drawn to one of its characters, Pauline Hawkins, who “had lived a tough life and had a brutal job, which caused her to be somewhat closed down in her emotions.”

The band has announced twenty-four new tour dates in support of the new album. Known for their triumphant live shows the current lineup boasts a leaner and more powerful live show. Mike Cooley and Patterson Hood started DBT seventeen years ago. In addition to Cooley and Hood, Brad Morgan is on drums, Jay Gonzalez is on keys and guitars and Matt Patton from The Dexateens rounds out the current line-up on bass.
