Four-time Grammy-Award winner Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit are back with a brand new album 'Reunions'. Out on Thirty Tigers, the record is available from 15th May 2020 and will be supported by tour dates across Europe in November 2020.
Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit’s ‘Reunions’ was produced by long-time collaborator Dave Cobb. The album sees Isbell at the top of his game, riding high on having his last two albums break into the UK Top 20 and top the US Charts. The first single is out now in the shape of the melodic, anthemic ‘Be Afraid’.
Success is a very nice problem to have but I think ‘how do I get through it and not lose what made me good in the first place?’’ A lot of these songs and the overall concept of this album is how do I progress as an artist and a human being and still keep that same hunger that I had when I wasn’t quite so far along in either respect.
The result is a seamless collection of ten new songs that delve into relationships with lovers, friends, children, parents, and one’s self. There are rousing anthems that will have stadiums singing along, lyrical standouts that highlight some of Isbell’s best writing to date, moving looks at youth and childhood, a deep dive into the challenges of relationships, and deeply personal songs about alcoholism and parenthood. All of them offer us an artist at the height of his powers and a band fully charged with creativity and confidence
At the back end of last year, Isbell sold out his inaugural, self-curated Shoals Fest, that took place in October in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. The festival saw performances from Sheryl Crow, Mavis Staples, and Amanda Shires, in addition to Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit. The band also performed a seven-night sold-out run at Nashville’s legendary Ryman Auditorium, making it the longest stand the group has had at the venue to date. Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit will also hit the road in Europe during November, with ten dates across the continent.
