The year 2020 is going to be a busy one for the Drive-By Truckers -- and a good one for their fans. The band has announced an extensive slate of tour dates, beginning early in the new year.

The Truckers will hit the road right at the start of 2020, on Jan. 16, when they'll play in Boulder, Colo. Through early May, they'll be on the road throughout the United States, with stops planned in New York City, Los Angeles, Nashville and elsewhere. In June, they'll venture overseas, with dates scheduled throughout Europe in the first half of the month.

A complete list of currently announced 2020 Drive-By Truckers tour dates is below. Fans can visit DriveByTruckers.com for full ticketing details.

The Drive-By Truckers' 2020 tour is in support of their forthcoming new album, The Unraveling, due out on Jan. 31, after a three-year break between records -- the band's longest stretch without a new project yet. Band co-founders Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley spent that time since the release of 2016's American Band dealing with writer's block, brought on largely by the current state of society and politics in America.

“How do you put these day to day things we’re all living through into the form of a song that we (much less anybody else) would ever want to listen to? How do you write about the daily absurdities when you can’t even wrap your head around them in the first place?" Hood reflects in a press release. I think our response was to focus at the core emotional level. More heart and less cerebral, perhaps.”
