Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit announce SXSW shows, summer tour

Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit have announced summer tour dates in support of their upcoming Lightning Rod Records release, Here We Rest (out April 12). The tour will stop in over 25 markets, beginning on May 12 in Murrells Inlet, SC and making stops along the way in Pittsburgh, Washington DC, Toronto, Chicago, St. Louis, Dallas, Houston, Denver, Seattle, and Los Angeles.

Born and raised in Alabama, Isbell titled the album Here We Rest after the state’s original motto. Isbell’s home is at the heart of the album, which he wrote after spending extensive time there following almost two years on the road.  The songs are warm, soulful and the performances feature the band’s best work to date. Here We Rest was produced by the band and recorded at the legendary Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, AL and at The NuttHouse in Sheffield, AL.

Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit (keyboardist Derry deBorja, guitarist Browan Lollar, drummer Chad Gamble and bassist Jimbo Hart) will be heading down to the South By Southwest Music Conference in Austin, TX, where there will have multiple shows previewing Here We Rest.
