New Drive-By Truckers – “The Righteous Path” & “I’m Sorry Huston”

Jason Isbell moved on and prospered from his questionably amicable split with Southern-fried Stereofaves Drive-By Truckers, and now the moon’s shining on DB-T’s turns in the studio. A few months ago they backed up Bettye, here they’re kicking up shit while trying to stay focused on “The Righteous Path,” and having Shonna issue a gutted, sunset apology to Huston. Both are our first listens of their forthcoming LP, and both (“I’m Sorry” in particular) are promising hints that the Truckers are about to unleash another southern rock opera. Have a listen to both, as well as previously added new cut “A Ghost To Most” at MySpace. Brighter Than Creation’s Dark is out 1/22 on New West. DB-T are supporting the record with tour dates through February and March, listed after the jump.
