Tedeschi Trucks Band Announces Album & Residency Dates

This is a good week to be a Tedeschi Trucks Band fan. In addition to announcing a release date and details for its upcoming album, the group has booked multi-night stands in Chicago; Glenside, Pa.; Washington, D.C.; and Nashville.

The band headed up by Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi will release its third studio album, Let Me Get By, on Jan. 29 via Fantasy Records. In exchange for signing up for the Tedeschi Trucks Band mailing list, you can receive a free download of the first track, “Anyhow.”

An announcement on the band’s website says the 10 original songs on the album “stand as a testament to the hard work, independent spirit, and full-on commitment of the entire Tedeschi Trucks Band.”

The news blast goes on to explain the symbolism of the album artwork. Keep reading to find out more:

“The album’s artwork – a Mongolian golden eagle pictured a moment after flying from its handler’s glove – and even the album title itself reflect the sense of total dedication that serves as the driving force behind this recording. From that wellspring of dedication come the most powerful TTB recordings yet. Some songs you may have heard on stage in 2015, and some others that were deliberately held back for this occasion. Susan’s vocals and Derek’s guitar soar, tumble and glide through each song, as powerful as ever, even in the album’s most understated moments.”

Trucks produced seven of the tracks on his own. Doyle Bramhall II helped out by performing and co-producing three tracks. The band’s website notes that with the Allman Brothers disbanding last year, Trucks had time to spend “countless hours in the studio” with engineer Bobby Tis as they honed Let Me Get By’s sounds and arrangements.

Fans can preorder Let Me Get By now via the TTB Store.

Here are the new dates:

Jan. 22-23 – Chicago, Ill., Chicago Theatre
Feb. 18-20 – Glenside, Pa, The Keswick Theatre
Feb. 25-27 – Washington, D.C., Warner Theatre 
March 3-5 – Nashville, Tenn., Ryman Auditorium

The first two shows in Glenside, D.C. and Nashville will feature opening acts, while the third nights is an “Evening With TTB” format with two sets from the band. A similar arrangement is planned for Chicago, with the first night featuring special guest opener Leon Russell and night two “An Evening With TTB.”

Presale tickets are available now. Additional presales are scheduled Thursday. General public ticket onsales begin Friday. Visit TedeschiTrucksBand.com for more information.
