Drive By Truckers / The Hold Steady Co-Headlining Tour

Straight from the Truckers:

The Drive-By Truckers are pleased to announce a 23-date co-headlining tour with their friends The Hold Steady. The bands will alternate who closes the shows throughout the tour, pre-sale begins Tuesday, August 19 ( and the public on-sale starts Friday, August 22.

The tour is aptly named the Rock and Roll Means well tour. The name of the tour is taken from a lyric of one of Mike Cooley’s songs, “Marry Me.” The line is one of Craig Finn’s favorite lyrics (which he often quotes) “rock and roll means well but can’t help telling young boys lies.”

“We’re all really excited to tour with The Hold Steady. They’re one of the greatest bands out there now and their new album is amazing. Craig writes songs I wish I’d written,” says Patterson Hood. Finn credits seeing DBT live on their Southern Rock Opera tour as the inspiration for him to start playing music again. USA Today rec ently called Southern Rock Opera “this century’s best rock album.”

The Drive-By Truckers have just wrapped a sold out tour of Europe and will play the Outside Lands Music Festival this weekend in San Francisco. Their latest album, Brighter Than Creations Dark was released in January and debuted at #37 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart.
