The Avett Brothers Announce New Album: The Carpenter


The Avett Brothers announced yesterday that they will be releasing their sixth full-length album, The Carpenter, this September 11th, a follow-up to the highly regarded I and Love and You released in 2009. The alt-country band from Concord, North Carolina was founded by brothers Scott and Seth Avett. As you can hear on the second track from the new album, "Live and Die," the band embraces their Southern roots with some country twang, a touch of folk, and good old rock 'n' roll. 

To support The Carpenter, The Avett Brothers will be touring across the country, including visiting the lovely Gorge Ampitheatre (one of our favorite venues!). I would highly suggest checking out one of their shows; seeing them in Dallas last Fall was one of the best decisions I've ever made. The band is simply beautiful live!
