Drive-By Truckers’ ‘English Oceans’ Out Now!

English Oceans, the 12th full length release from Drive-By Truckers, is now available everywhere! The band recorded the album over a 13 day period in August of 2013 with longtime producer David Barbe. The 13 track album features the biggest contribution from guitarist Mike Cooley yet, who wrote 6 tracks on English Oceans, with Patterson Hood contributing the other 7.

Though the album just came out, the positive reviews have already begun rolling in. “Alabama’s finest return, recharged, and with a brilliant, balanced blast of rock’n’roll” claims Uncut Magazine, who gave the album a 9/10. Paste called English Oceans “a triumph for the Drive-By Truckers, one that capitalizes on Hood and Cooley’s strengths as songwriters and also gives them something to sing for that means more than all those colorful characters put together.”

“It’s my favorite thing that we’ve ever done,” said Hood in a recent press release. “I’m proud of our catalog – we always try to make as good a record as we can make. Sometimes things just work. This time, we made kind of a magical record.”
