Patterson Hood / Drive-By Truckers news bites

Patterson Hood sent out an email recently that contained a lot of interesting information I thought I'd pass along:

  • Patterson's second solo album, Murdering Oscar (and other love songs) is available for pre-order. One of the available pre-order packages includes an autographed 180 gram vinyl album, a digital download and a signed (by Wes Freed) and numbered giclée of the album artwork.

  • Summer dates a scarce but Patterson hopes to take his merry band of Screwtopians (David Barbe, Will Johnson, Scott Danbom, John Neff and Brad Morgan) on a coast to coast tour somtime later this year. (PATTERSON! YOU GUYS REMEMBER WHERE FLORIDA IS?????)

  • July 7 will see the DVD release of the Trucker's appearance on PBS's Austin City Limits. The DVD contains the complete show (only approx. 1/3 aired) which features on of the last ever performances of "18 Wheels Of Love", featuring the full monologue and the sequel monologue. (I NEED A COPY OF THIS!)

  • On Sept. 7, DBT's former label, New West Records, will be releasing The Fine Print (A Collection of Oddities and Rarities 2003-2008). The album will contain many hard to find tracks such as "George Jones Talkin' Cell Phone Blues", "Rebels", "Play It All Night Long", "TVA" and the original version of "Goode's Field Road". (FINAL MONEY GRAB BY NEW WEST OR LEGIT RELEASE? THE REST OF THE TRACKLIST WILL TELL)

  • And finally, sounds like the band is in the studio this month recording the as of yet untitled follow-up to Brighter Than Creation's Dark. They hope to release it sometime in early 2010. (HOPEFULLY THE LABEL CHANGE WILL LEAVE THE BAND FEELING ENERGIZED)
