Tedeschi Trucks Band Is Working On A New Live Album And Studio Release

first_imgAt the very beginning of 2016, the Tedeschi Trucks Band released their new studio effort Let Me Get By. The album was the complete package, showcasing the band’s huge lineup in all of its musical chemistry. Of course, the band is itching for more.According to a new interview with guitarist Derek Trucks in MassLive, the band is not only preparing a live album, but will soon head back into the studio to write and record a new album. The article starts off by saying that Trucks is “getting ready to mix a live album from the Tedeschi Trucks Band’s last tour,” so we can certainly look forward to that!The band is gearing up to record some new music as well, according to Trucks. “We want to keep it moving forward,” he says in the interview. “The last one we really hit our stride as far as writing as a group. Everyone is chomping at the bit to do the next one.”Though he’s certainly excited about the prospect of new music, Trucks seems to be quite aware of the climate in today’s music industry. “It is such a different world now. I feel lucky that even after 20 years on the road I’ve never seen a check from selling a record. It’s always been about touring. So in that sense I don’t feel like I’ve lost something. But still, it is nice to make records. It’s a snapshot in time of where the band was.”You can read the full interview here. Tedeschi Trucks Band will perform at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, CT on October 30th, and has a fall tour scheduled between November 11th through 19th, as well as a three-night run at the Orpheum Theater in Boston, MA in December.
