The Drive-By Truckers to Release Brighter Than Creations Dark
The Drive-By Truckers have set January 22 as the release date their eighth record, Brighter Than Creations Dark. The groups long labored studio project features 19 new songs, many of which were previewed during the bands The Dirt Underneath tour last spring. The bands longtime bassist, Shonna Tucker, also makes her debut on Brighter Than Creations Dark, contributing three of the records tracks, while founding member John Neff has officially signed on as the groups fulltime pedal steel/auxiliary guitarist. The album also features Muscle Shoals keyboardist Spooner Oldham, to whom the album is dedicated.
