The Avett Brothers are thrilled to announce their 2010 spring tour dates.

Beginning their spring tour on February 4 in Athens, OH the band will travel throughout the U.S. and end up in Cumberland, MD on May 28 (see below for full itinerary).
The Avett Brothers recently taped a special performance for PBS' Austin City Limits. Austin City Limits is the longest-running music series in American television history. With this performance, The Avett Brothers join the celebrated ranks with music legends and innovators from every genre including the likes of Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Fats Domino. This momentous performance will air January 23 on PBS.
This year, the brothers have been wowing late night audiences across America with performances on The Late Show with David Letterman, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and more recently, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon where they debuted their second single "Slight Figure of Speech."
The video for "Slight Figure of Speech" premiered this week on the comedy site, FunnyOrDie.com, with a guest appearance by funny man Andy Daly. The video was directed by fellow North Carolina native Jody Hill, the brain behind HBO's cult classic "Eastbound & Down." You can watch it here:
