The Josh Abbott Band are loading up their tour bus for their 2017 Live It While You’ve Got It Tour. The trek will be in support of the band’s latest release, Front Row Seat, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Independent Albums chart and nabbed a Top 10 spot on the Top Country Albums chart (No. 9).

The JAB’s 2017 Live It While You’ve Got It Tour is set to kick off in the band’s home state of Texas before heading to Colorado, Illinois, Massachusetts, New York, Washington, Ohio, California and more. The trek begins on Dec. 30 in Houston, and it’s currently slated to end on March 26 in Anaheim, Calif.; a list of already-announced dates is below, though more will be added.

Front Row Seat examines the evolution and eventual dissolution of Abbott’s marriage. It’s a 16-track record separated into five acts, and it’s as personal and honest as they come.

“We feel like we made an album that, in my opinion, I don’t know that we’ll ever make a better one,” Abbott says. “We’ll make great albums, but it’ll be hard to beat the concept and just the overall feel of this record. It will be really hard for us to top that, I think.”

Front Row Seat is available for download via iTunes. More information on tour dates is available on the band’s official site.
