Too Drunk To Dream

…ain’t no drinking when the bottle’s dry…

Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit hitting the high notes on new album

[Jason Isbell]
I really can’t say enough about the tracks that I’ve heard off of Jason Isbell’s new album Seven Mile Island, due Feb 17th. There IS something to be said about straight up honest songwriting, intelligent and inventive musicianship and a road-tested pace that would make any fan of Southern-tinged alt. country tap their foot and bob their head.

In fact, Isbell and his band, the 400 Unit have earned their road stripes. They’ve criss-crossed the States following the release of Sirens of the Ditch, having played over 200 shows in just over a year. Judging by the schedule of things to come, that count is gonna skyrocket. I know that I’m catching them in Boston. I’m not missing that.

Preordered ticket holders also get a one-year subscription to PASTE Magazine, which is pretty fucking cool. Not much comes for free anymore, so hook it up. If you order, and don’t want the subscription, hit me up in the comments (mine just ran out)
