North Carolina’s Avett Brothers have performed the songs ‘High Steppin’’ and ‘Trouble Letting Go’ from their forthcoming new album ‘Closer Than Together’ on Jimmy Kimmel Live! The band have also debuted the artwork for the record which comes out on American/Republic Records on Friday, October 4th which you can kind of see below, along with the videos. The band say of the record: “We [made] an album that is obviously informed by what is happening now on a grander scale all around us… because we are a part of it and it is a part of us.” Look out for a review on AUK next month.
