New Jason Isbell Album, Tour

Just noticed this - Jason Isbell, formerly of The Drive-By Truckers, is set to release his second solo album (and first with his band, The 400 Unit), entitled Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, on February 17th via Nashville-based Lightning Rod Records.

The first track from the album, "Seven Mile Island", is currently streaming on the band's MySpace page.

The band will be supporting the album with a two-month tour starting in Birmingham and ending in Austin at SXSW. Full dates are below, but I'm particularly excited about the 2/26 show at Bowery Ballroom and the 3/1 show at the 9:30 Club.
