CD/DVD Review: The 4th Live Album From The Avett Brothers Arrives

North Carolina band, The Avett Brothers are never ones to stop and rest. In the last five years they released two studio albums and two live albums. Their newest live album "Live, Vol. Four" will be released on December 18th through American/Republic Records. It will be released as a CD/DVD set as the CD is the exact soundtrack to the film, beginning with the Brothers getting ready to take the stage, warming up their voices with "Feeling Good." This new live release also features two brand new songs, "Satan Pulls The String" and "Rejects In The Attic."

The shows gets underway with the slow-build up of "Laundry Room" as the audience tries to harmonize with Seth And Scott Avett. The Avett Brothers are an amazing live act as they feed off the energy of audience as in "Kick Drum Heart" and "Talk On Indolence." They also have that gentle touch that puts a spell over the audience as with the acoustic "Ten Thousand Words," which features help from their sister Bonny on vocals and the ever popular "I And Love And You." In between, The Avett Brothers plug-in and rock out with their spot-on cover of Thin Lizzy's "Boys Are Back In Town." The disc closes with an accapella version of "Happy Trails" just like Van Halen did to close their "Diver Down" album.

The Avett Brothers just announced a 16-date spring tour that will cross the U.S. For a complete list of concert dates and to find out more about their new live album, please visit theavettbrothers.com.
