The mighty Drive-By Truckers will release their 10th studio record Go-Go Boots, on February 15, 2011, the first on their own label ATO Records. Go-Go Boots was produced by their longtime producer, David Barbe (Deerhunter, Bettye LaVette, Sugar). In conjunction with the new album they’ll also be releasing their documentary The Secret to a Happy Ending on DVD.
The band will show their appreciation for vinyl and independent record stores by releasing a special 10” 45 with Thanksgiving Filter and Used To Be A Cop on Record Store Day, November 26th. Both songs will be on Go-Go Boots and the release will be a limited pressing of only 2,500 copies and will feature a special sleeve designed by Wes Freed as well as a download card.
DBT will be releasing a series of Go-Go Boots episodes directed by Patterson Hood and Jason Thrasher. As a preview to the episodes they’ve released a video for Used To Be a Cop.
The band will kick off a month long tour in Europe this week and will end the year with a bang playing New Year’s Eve in New York city at Terminal 5. The Go-Go Boots tour will be announced soon.
