THE AVETT BROTHERS have officially announced dates for their 2013 fall tour. The Grammy Award-nominated North Carolina folk rock collective will begin the jaunt at Métropolis in Montreal, Quebec on September 8 through November 22 at UIC Pavilion in Chicago, IL. More dates will be announced soon.
As they perform at intimate auditoriums across North America, this run will prove to be a fitting conclusion to the touring cycle behind their critically acclaimed latest offering, The Carpenter.
Consistently, THE AVETT BROTHERS have enchanted audiences everywhere with their energetic live sets. The Carpenter continues to come to life night after night on stage as well. The critics concur too.
The New York Post said, “This North Carolina bluegrass-pop sibling act is like Mumford & Sons with actual mountain credibility”, Billboard added how “Scott and Seth Avett harmonize brightly over a rollicking honky-tonk groove”, and ARTISTdirect.com called them “one of the most engaging and enthralling live acts of the 21st century”.
At the same time in between all of the shows, the group has already begun penning ideas for their next offering, which will be their eighth full-length.
The Carpenter is the first album to be released under the partnership between Rick Rubin’s legendary American Recordings and Republic Records. The unanimously lauded band’s latest album debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200, giving them their highest debut yet. Rolling Stone, People, USA Today, and American Songwriter have sung the record’s praises.
People called The Carpenter “an album that achieves rootsy bliss”, USA Today wrote, “They’ve constructed a near masterpiece”, Entertainment Weekly wrote, “The North Carolina siblings deliver another gorgeously crafted set of sad and soulful laments with acoustic guitars, sharply punctuated piano, and delicate cello”, and the Huffington Post said, “They dig deeper than ever on an album that’s at turns somber, achingly beautiful, and fully aware of the perils of life”.
THE AVETT BROTHERS performed on NBC’s “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” and on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!” twice in a few months’ time. The second time on Kimmel they were backed by the Brooklyn Philharmonic Orchestra for a heartfelt tribute to Brooklyn with the title track from their 2009 album “I and Love and You”, personally requested by the show’s host.
