Some of the tracks to be included on the album are titled, “Strengthen What Remains”, “Still Your Mind”, “All The World”, and “Hard Case”. The latter was written by Mike Mattison, Derek Trucks, and Susan Tedeschi, and was debuted as the album’s soulful lead single last week.The music video’s story–which features an imprisoned buffalo man looking for a way out–was written by Mattison, and animated and designed by Brett Underhill.

On Christmas Eve, the band announced that bassist Tim Lefebvre would be leaving the group. They also revealed a week later that keyboardist Kofi Burbridge will be taking time away from the band as a result of a recent follow-up procedure to a 2017 surgery, with Gabe Dixon coming on to fill the role until his return. On a lighter note, the band is also charging into the new year with their first-ever official fan community with the newly-established “Swamp Family” fan club.TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND 2019 TOUR DATES1/17/19 – Cedar Rapids, IA – Paramount Theatre SOLD OUT1/18/19 – Chicago, IL – Chicago Theatre1/19/19 – Chicago, IL – Chicago Theatre1/22/19 – Knoxville, TN – Tennessee Theatre1/23/19 – Chattanooga, TN – Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Auditorium1/25/19 – Chicago, IL – Chicago Theatre1/26/19 – Chicago, IL – Chicago Theatre1/28/19 – New Orleans, LA – Saenger Theatre1/29/19 – New Orleans, LA – Saenger Theatre1/31/19 – Nashville, TN – Ryman Auditorium2/1/19 – Nashville, TN – Ryman Auditorium2/2/19 – Nashville, TN – Ryman Auditorium2/15/19 – Washington, D.C. – Warner Theatre2/16/19 – Washington, D.C. – Warner Theatre2/17/19 – Hershey, PA – Hershey Theatre2/20/19 – Brooklyn, NY – Brooklyn Academy of Music – Howard Gilman Opera House2/22/19 – Washington, D.C. – Warner Theatre2/23/19 – Washington, D.C. – Warner Theatre2/26/19 – Philadelphia, PA – The Met Philadelphia2/28/19 – Birmingham, AL – Alabama Theatre3/1/19 – Augusta, GA – William B.
