Alt-country rockers Drive-by Truckers have released “The Perilous Night,” a dark new single detailing the current political climate. Despite its heavy content, songwriter Patterson Hood stated in an interview with Stereogum “It may be the darkest song I’ve ever written, but its also a dance song. Turn it up.” You can read the complete interview here and watch the official lyric video below:

More About Drive-by Truckers
Drive-By Truckers have always been outspoken, telling a distinctly American story via craft, character, and concept, all backed by sonic ambition and social conscience. Founded in 1996 by singer/songwriter/guitarists Mike Cooley and Patterson Hood, the band have long held a progressive fire in their belly but with AMERICAN BAND, they have made the most explicitly political album in their extraordinary canon. A powerful and legitimately provocative work, hard edged and finely honed, the album is the sound of a truly American Band – a Southern American band – speaking on matters that matter.
