The breakthrough success of The Avett Brothers’ sixth album I and Love and You firmly cemented them as major players on the US nu-folk scene, combining an old-time sensibility and instrumentation with sharp indie-pop music. Three years on and the band have finally announced a follow up in the form of The Carpenter, due for release on the 11th September. The Carpenter sees The Avett Brothers team up again with I and Love and You producer Rick Rubin.

The first track to hit the webs from the new album is “Live and Die” which is featured as part of NPR’s Summer Music Preview. Take a listen here.
