Avett Brothers New Album debuts at #1 on iTunes

Today, the Avett Brothers released their new album “Closer Than Together,” featuring the hit singles “High Steppin” and “Bang Bang.” The album debuted at #1 on iTunes Album and Rock Album chart. While the Avetts have stated that this is not a sociopolitical album, Seth Avett stated, “We did, however, make an album that is obviously informed by what is happening now on a grander scale all around us … because we are a part of it and it is a part of us…The Avett Brothers will probably never make a sociopolitical record. But if we did, it might sound something like this.” Be sure to check out the NY Post article for a funny ping pong challenge.
