Fans of The Avett Brothers have been waiting a while for the release of the next album. That wait is almost over. After releasing True Sadness in 2016, The Avett Brothers are releasing its new full-length album, Closer Than Together, on Oct. 4. The band kicks off a tour the day before with an Oct. 3 show in Wallingford, Conn.
Seth Avett wrote a lengthy mission statement to go along with the album’s release. “As our records tend to be, the newest – entitled Closer Than Together – is certainly led by the personal narrative of our own lives,” he wrote, adding, “This chapter, however, perhaps in part of our age or our time, wanders inevitably into hallways both social and political. There are songs developed through and inspired by not only what we see inside our homes and our travels, but by the connections we are blessed to nourish.”
