New from the Avetts :: Family gospel salvation

It feels like I've been posting about the Avett Brothers a lot, but that's because I've been listening to them a lot. They make my blood hot, and then sometimes they make things shift around loose inside of me. So that's real good.

According to their MySpace page, they hope to have a new release ready for sale at their shows starting November 1. Continuing under the presumption that family members make the best band members, it is a gospel album called Jim Avett and Family. According to a North Carolinian fan on their message boards, the cover photo of the album (above) is the Mt. Pleasant Methodist Church where their dad Jim is a member, the church the brothers grew up in. The same fan also wrote that it was the first place he ever saw the Avett Brothers live, in the fellowship hall for a small donation right after they had signed with Ramseur Records.

I'd imagine that it might sound something like this:

I'll Fly Away - The Avett Brothers

(from the 2002 album Live At The Double Door Inn)

After this gospel foray, the next thing we can look forward to is their Rick Rubin-produced album in 2009, their first on the Columbia imprint American Recordings.

That is SO exciting! Thanks for reporting on this band - I checked them out and instantly became a fan. Can't wait to check them out in Indiana in November - they're doing a two-night stand in Bloomington!!!
