This morning North Carolina roots rockers the Avett Brothers officially announced plans for a follow-up to 2009’s I And Love And You. The Brothers’ sixth full-length will be called The Carpenter and it was produced by none other than famed record producer and Def Jam co-founder Rick Rubin.
Alongside today’s announcement, the Avetts revealed “Live And Die,” track two from the new record. The single is, like most of the Avett Brothers’ music, a fairly melancholy folk-rock track with a powerful chorus. Listen to “Live And Die” over at NPR and pick up The Carpenter on September 11 via Universal Records.
