Drive-By Truckers announce 2014 tour dates, share video for “Made Up English Oceans”

on April 08, 2014, 2:20pm

Earlier this year, Drive-By Truckers released their 10th studio album English Oceans, a mixed but characteristically likable bag of pointed alt-country tracks showcasing the songwriting tandem of Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley. Now the Georgia rockers are set to take their new material out on the open road with an extensive North American tour that runs from April through the end of July.

The lengthy jaunt officially kicks off later this week in Mill Valley, CA and features opening stints for Willie Nelson, as well as shows with The Hold Steady, Deer Tick, and Justin Townes Earle. Check out the full itinerary below.

Along with the tour dates, the band has shared a new video for the album cut “Made Up English Oceans”. One of the Cooley-written tracks on the album, “Made Up English Oceans” takes aim at the slimy Reagan/Bush Sr. political operative Lee Atwater. Though the song has a decidedly political bent, its accompanying video is much more simple. Set in a beautiful southern mansion, the visual finds Cooley strumming his guitar on a bed while a mysterious woman wanders around.
