Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit’s first two albums (the self-titled debut and 2011’s ‘Here We Rest’) will be remastered and reissued this autumn. Collaborator and producer Dave Cobb will oversee the updated versions of the albums. Isbell’s solo debut ‘Sirens of the Ditch’ was repackaged as a deluxe edition last year. Isbell has also announced dates for his annual residency at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. He’s had a diverse group of artists opening these shows in previous years, including Bully, Diarrhea Planet, Molly Tuttle and 400 Unit member Amanda Shires in 2018, along with Julien Baker, Bettye LaVette and the Secret Sisters in 2017. Supporting acts for this year’s shows have not yet been announced.
