Drive-By Truckers Are Sadder and Angrier on 'The Unraveling'

Then there's "21st Century", which, for my money, is the most disheartening song on an already emotionally heavy album. Hood laments the state of, well, all of America, essentially.

It’s the end of the world (or it feels like it every news cycle), and Drive-By Truckers know it. The venerable Athens, Ga., rockers last week announced that their 12th album — and first in more than three years, which almost constitutes a hiatus for the prolific quintet — would be out Jan. 31. It’s titled “The Unraveling,” produced by longtime collaborator David Barbe and engineered by Grammy-winning Matt Ross-Spang. “You can’t tell the rabbit from the hat,” they sing on the first single “Armage...
