The Avett Brothers

The Avett Brothers made mainstream waves with their 2009 major label debut, I and Love and You, landing at #16 on the Billboard Top 200 and garnering critical acclaim from Rolling Stone, Paste, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and Time. True Sadness, released in 2016, achieved The Avett Brothers’ highest career debut to date and dominated multiple charts. The Rick Rubin-produced album hit #1 on Billboard’s Top Albums Chart, Top Rock Albums Chart, Digital Albums Chart, #3 on the Billboard Top 200, and scored the band two Grammy nominations. Shortly thereafter, The Avett Brothers were inducted into their home state of North Carolina’s Music Hall of Fame. 2018 brought the HBO premiere of May It Last: A Portrait of the Avett Brothers, a documentary co-directed by Judd Apatow and Michael Bonfiglio. The band headlined the Concert for Hurricane Florence Relief in Greenville, North Carolina in November 2018, raising $325,000 to help those affected by Hurricane Florence.

The Avett Brothers just announced their new album Closer Than Together, scheduled to come out October 4th, and released their latest single, “High Steppin’.” Closer Than Together will focus more on political issues and the “state of the world and observations reflected from the band’s own experiences.” The Avett Brothers continue to be revered as one of the top folk-rock acts in the country.
