The Avett Brothers: Album Due 9/29 & Huge Tour


The Avett Brothers
North Carolina-based rock band, The Avett Brothers, are gearing up for the release of their highly anticipated American Recordings/Columbia Records debut, I and Love and You, which hits stores on Tuesday, September 29, 2009. I and Love and You was recorded in Malibu, California and produced by multi-Grammy Award winning producer, Rick Rubin. The thirteen songs that make up this new record defy pigeonholing and can best be described as an amalgam of rock, folk, pop and country. The band has spent years touring, recording, performing and perfecting this blend of music styles with their signature lyrics and vocals. I and Love and You will also be available at participating Starbucks company-operated locations in the U.S. and Canada and wherever music is sold.

In addition beginning Tuesday, September 22, 2009, NPR Music will host an Exclusive First Listen of I and Love and You on their website,, where fans will be able to get a sneak peak of the new album a week prior to release. NPR Music's distinctive Exclusive First Listen series recently showcased new music from such innovators as Wilco, Moby, Bjork and Neko Case.
