The Avett Brothers to Release Live CD and DVD, Live, Volume 3 on October 5



Columbia Records -- American/Columbia recording artists The Avett Brothers will release Live, Volume 3 on CD and DVD on October 5, 2010. This electric performance was recorded on August 8, 2009 at Bojangles Coliseum in Charlotte, NC. A special thrill for the band after seeing artists like Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Queen and Bob Dylan grace this same stage. Live, Volume 3 will feature material culled from their decade-long career including their most recent, critically acclaimed album I and Love and You. Live, Volume 3 showcases the amazing live performances that have helped The Avett Brothers build a legion of loyal fans; growing exponentially with each release, performance and appearance.

Live, Volume 3 DVD is comprised of highlights from the Bojangles Coliseum, shot in HD and mixed by Ryan Hewitt, the engineer/mixer of I and Love and You. Additionally, the DVD will include documentary-style episodes, interspersed with interviews from the band and fans in attendance. The Live, Volume 3 CD will be comprised of a selection of songs from the Charlotte performance. Live, Volume 3 is available for pre-order at

A new video for "Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promise" will premiere on NPR Music's All Songs Considered blog ( on Wednesday July 14, 2010. Comprised of artwork painted by Jason Ryan Mitchum and inspired by notable modern artists such as Phillipe Halsman and William Kentridge (who just put on a major show at the Museum of Modern Art in New York), the video displays the importance of fine art in The Avett Brothers' work, furthermore demonstrated by Scott Avett's burgeoning art career. His own original artwork, "Julianne in Vain", served as the cover art for the Avett Brothers' 2009 American/Columbia release, I and Love and You.

The Avett Brothers continue to tour in support of I and Love and You with notable headlining performances at New York's famed Radio City Music Hall, Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre and culminating with two nights at Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium (see below for full itinerary).
