DBT just threw down the gauntlet with a new 7″ for Election Day.

“‘The Perilous Night’ is a sort of nightmarish epilogue to the themes we addressed on American Band,” said Drive-By Truckers singer and songwriter Patterson Hood. “I began writing it on the day the Electoral College met in December 2016 and completed it in the wake of the horrific events in Charlottesville, VA last summer. We recorded it in Athens, GA during a break in our fall tour and mixed it on the day Tom Petty passed away. It may be the darkest song I’ve ever written, but it’s also a dance song. Turn it up!”
