Alabama rock group the Dexateens are on a three-show tour in support of their latest record Teenage Hallelujah on Cornelius Chapel Records which includes a stop at Chicago's Hideout on February 24th. The band is set to record a follow-up record at Dial Back Sound, which is owned by Dexateen/Drive By Trucker Matt Patton.
Since 1998, the Dexateens have released eight critically acclaimed records, all showing a garage and indie-rock influence steeped in the sounds of country, soul, and blues. The current lineup includes Elliott McPherson on guitar, singing, songwriting, and bass guitar by the Drive-By Truckers' Matt Patton, Brian Gosdin on drums, and Brad Armstrong (13Ghosts) and Taylor Hollingsworth (Conor Oberst, Mystic Valley Band, Dead Fingers) on lead guitar.
The Dexateens plan to release their new full-length Struggler on Cornelius Chapel this summer, and to continue to tour in support of both releases. Their live rock show is not to be missed, and can be caught at 10:00 p.m. at Chicago's Hideout on February 24th.
