Drive-By Truckers: Dexateens Bassist To Play West Coast Shows


Drive-By Truckers
Drive-By Truckers kick off a 12 day west coast run tonight in Denver, CO with support from Robert Ellis. Below is a note from Patterson Hood about Matt Patton from The Dexateens playing bass on this run, replacing the recently departed Shonna Tucker.

"For these shows, we are proud and pleased to announce that we will be joined on bass by old friend and partner in rock, Matt Patton. Matt is the bass player in The Dexateens, one of our favorite bands. I had the honor of working with him a few years back when I co- produced their Hardwire Healing album. The Teens don't play out nearly enough these days and we are thrilled to have him out with us for a couple of months.

As I've said before, we won't be naming a permanent member anytime too soon. This is an "off" year with limited touring and a lot of other activities on our plate. David Barbe played bass on much of my upcoming solo album, and the plan is still to have him play on our next album, which we are not starting any time soon, so the plan could change before that happens.

Long Live Rock!
Patterson Hood
Drive-By Truckers"
