THE AVETT BROTHERS’ new album, True Sadness [American Recordings/Republic Records], achieves the group’s highest career debut to date and dominates multiple charts. The Rick Rubin produced album arrives at #1 on Billboard’s Top Albums Chart,  #1 Top Rock Albums Chart, #1 on the Digital Albums Chart and #3 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart. 


In addition, True Sadness continues to garner overwhelming critical acclaim with many considering it their finest release yet. Rolling Stone extolled it as “Their most heart-baring LP,” while Paste dubbed it, “Their most surprising album.” People claimed, “The sincerity of the lyrics keeps the boys true to their roots,” and Interview wrote, “As a whole, True Sadness is the band’s most intimate and exploratory album to date.” The Current summed up its impact asserting, “THE AVETT BROTHERS have emerged as the key act redefining the genre.”


Over the past months, THE AVETT BROTHERS have been quite literally everywhere. They performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the TODAY Show, and CBS This Morning. In addition, they engaged in a special Facebook Live stream, answering fan questions directly and in real-time.


Finally, their hit single “Ain’t No Man” has continued to hold the #1 slot at AAA radio on the BDS Monitored Chart for the third week in a row. The song is quickly shaping up to be one of their biggest hits yet. Already, “Ain’t No Man” has been streamed 2.7 million times and counting.
