Absolutely fantastic musician and overall nice guy. Wrote dome of the best Drive-By Truckers songs imho, Goddamn Lonely Love and Decoration Day are still their best songs.

Southeastern will be his fourth solo album though, he released Sirens of the Ditch as Jason Isbell, followed by the eponymous debut and Here we Rest as Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit

one of the best in the whole industry. but i would have preferred him to add another instrument... between him and the part-time keys/part-time guitar guy they really have the whole guitar thing down

Nah this is being billed as his second solo album actually haha. Not a big difference though.

Personally, I'm really happy they added a second guitarist--a punchier live sound is totally welcome.

Anyway Here We Rest was a sleeper of a record that became one of my all-time favorites over the course of severa months...hoping the same is true of this one.

Yup you're right. It is his second Album as simply Jason Isbell. Looks like it was recorded without The 400 Unit and he won't be touring with them this time.

Not according to his website though. The album is billed as a solo effort and it says that

Quote:
Isbell will be performing with a full band that will include mainstays Derry deBorja (keyboards), Chad Gamble (drums) and Jimbo Hart (bass), along with new guitarist Sadler Vaden.

Probably in the same fashion he performed on the "Live in Alabama" record.

Doesn't really matter though. Dude's awesome and it will be great to see him live again.Hope he'll hit Éire as well :)

Yeah, but imagine how punchy it would be with a HORN PLAYER! or just bring his wife on fiddle and backgrounds! either way, i am obviously stoked for another guitar too, especially cuz he is hitting MI for the first time i can ever remember
