Felice Brothers Fall Tour


The Felice Brothers
The Felice Brothers are proud to announce a multi-date Fall headlining tour of the United States. Following their well received appearance at the inaugural Outside Lands Music Festival (read the review here) in San Francisco's historic Golden Gate Park, they kick off an impressive run in Burlington, VT September 4, and keep on through early November with a show at the world renowned Spiegeltent in New York City. Along the way they will be joined by A.A. Bondy and Deer Tick.

Recently signed to Team Love Records, the Catskill Mountain rabble-rousers released their Self-Titled LP this past March 2008 on the NYC based label. No Depression wrote that the "ethereal, guns-and-sex-and-Dust-Bowl-metaphora infused" album could "not be understated." Meanwhile Uncut went on to say, "rowdy, vivid, moving and playful, The Felice Brothers is just glorious." It follows their self-released debut Through These Reins and Gone (2006), and Tonight at the Arizona, put out by Loose Records in the U.K. in 2007. This summer they've kept busy on the road, hitting festivals like Bonnaroo, All Points West, The Newport Folk Festival, Mountain Jam, and Langerado.

A far cry from the chicken coop and abandoned rail car where they recorded parts of their album, their booking at these marquee events is a result of their "sinewy, rough-edged and exhilarating" (MOJO) performances. A recent show in England left The Telegraph issuing glowing praise. "This is cracked, rootsy stuff... They really are that good. And they are on fire." Evidence of that energy was more than apparent at this year's Newport Folk Festival. When power went out at their stage it didn't deter The Felice Brothers in the slightest. They just hopped into the audience and finished out their set acoustic, tromping around in the mud, playing their instruments, and belting out choruses much to the delight of the enthusiastic crowd that had gathered to see them.

The Felice Brothers - "Frankie's Gun"

Simone, Ian and James Felice are the three eldest boys from a family of seven, born carpenter's sons in the wilds of New York's Catskill Mountains. Along with friends Christmas and Farley, they moved their Sunday barbecue sing-alongs from their Dad's house onto the streets and subways of New York City.

Does anyone find these guys entirely boring Dylan sound alikes ? I heard a disc of their material while at our Greyfox campsite this year and everyone thought it was Dylan except of course the guy who put it on. I found them very grating and removed the disc to much applause. Just curious if anyone feels the same ...
