The release of Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit’s upcoming record Weathervanes is just days away, and the suspense is killing me.

Luckily for Jason Isbell fans, though, there is a way to hear the album before its June 9th drop.

On Wednesday June 7th, select record stores across the country are hosting Weathervanes listening events to give fans of Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit an early opportunity to listen to the record all the way through before it officially comes out.

With 35 independent record stores across 23 states hosting the events, it’ll be a great opportunity to squash the suspense by getting a chance at an early listen, and to support your local record store in the process.
