07/14/17 Suzanne Cordeiro/ for American-Statesman Jason Isbell, along with special guests Mountain Goats, performed at ACL Live in Austin, Texas.

Jason Isbell, Amanda Shires and the 400 Unit just finished up a sold-out weekend at ACL Live, but they’re coming back in August.

“Austin City Limits” just announced a dual taping for Isbell and Shires, along with the rest of The 400 Unit, slated for August 21.

This will be the second “Austin City Limits” taping for the couple and their band, previously appearing on Season 39 of the show in 2013. This time, however, Isbell and Shires will play their own sets, as they did during their ACL Live shows last weekend.

“Isbell has a gift for taking big, messy human experiences and compressing them into badass little combustible packages made of rhythm, melody and madly efficient language,” the “Austin City Limits” news release reads. “With [her latest album] ‘My Piece Of Land,’ Amanda Shires has reached a personal pinnacle. This album is the creative milestone suited to accompany the recent milestones in her life: becoming a mother, developing into a true artist, and finally finding a home.”

Information on how to be a part of the live studio audience will be announced a week before the taping on the “Austin City Limits” Facebook and Twitter profiles. 

If an “Austin City Limits” taping isn’t your style, or if you missed their shows last weekend, Isbell, Shires and The 400 Unit will be playing the Whitewater Amphitheater in New Braunfels Sept. 22. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 21 at 10 a.m.
