A mere two months after playing a secret show at the Masonic Lodge to celebrate the release of their 10th studio album (12th overall), English Oceans
, Patterson Hood and his supporting cast are heading back to Los Angeles. On this collection, he splits songwriting duties with longtime guitarist Mike Cooley. While the group's Southern rock will sound familiar to its fans, the balance and different song styles are a refreshing jolt.
