Last month, he released an EP titled The Living Room Sessions, a quickie album recorded in two days in Hoge's living room. It includes songs from his recent full-band effort The Wreckage, including alternate versions of "Even If It Breaks Your Heart" and "Favorite Waste of Time".
"I like acoustic recordings that try to be different from the album versions," Hoge told a reporter from the Charleston City Paper. "We didn't try 50 different arrangements or anything. It was really fun. It was a step closer to the 'you get what you get' mentality."
It has been less than a year since the Drive-By Truckers released The Big To-Do, and already have announced a February 15, 2011 release for their next record, titled Go-Go Boots. It will feature songs recorded during the same session.
