Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit just announced a batch of tour dates that'll keep the Alabama-based band close to home for a bulk of the spring.
New April and May dates in support of Grammy-nominated album The Nashville Sound mostly keep Isbell's band in the South and Southwest. The lone date outside of these regions is an April 28 appearance at the Stagecoach Festival in Indio, Calif.
The new dates lengthen an already busy tour schedule for Isbell and 400 Unit members Derry deBorja (keyboards), Chad Gamble (drums), Jimbo Hart (bass), Amanda Shires (fiddle) and Sadler Vaden (guitar). Multi-date trips to Australia and Europe bookend the band's forthcoming trek through the South.
Per a press release, legendary British folk artist Richard Thompson will open most of the new dates. His selection furthers a recent trend of today's best songwriters pointing their fans to such living legends as Thompson and John Prine.
