Drive-By Truckers reissuing ‘Alabama Ass Whuppin,’ playing the Vic Theatre on Halloween
Drive-By Truckers are slated to reissue their first live album, 2000's Alabama Ass Whuppin', on September 10 via ATO Records. It's been re-mastered and features updated artwork by Wes Freed (seen above). The album was recorded from March of 1999 through August of 2000 in venues across the southeast including the 40 Watt, The Star Bar, Tasty Word, The High Hat, and more. The band are also currently in the studio hard at work on their 12th LP, which is due out in the early part of 2014 via ATO.
DBT have a few August dates on their schedule and then will be embarking on a fall North American tour in October. That tour includes a performance at the Vic Theatre on October 31 (Halloween). Tickets for the Chicago show go on sale this Saturday (8/17) at 10AM CST.
