The Felice Brothers

"The Felice Brothers new and fourth LP "Celebration, Florida", will be in stores May 10. Recorded in the gymnasium and theater of Beacon, NY's old high school, the band explores a multitude of sounds and instrumentation throughout the expansive album. It's inspired, imaginative, heady, menacing, passionate, and rollicking. Most importantly, it's as steadfastly authentic as ever, expanding upon the dark, woozy undercurrent of ramshackle barroom blues, vaudevillian atmospherics, and surreal storytelling of their previous albums."
- says the band

The LP's first single, 'Ponzi', will be released on 3/29. The full track list is below.

Meanwhile The Felice Brothers are on tour with Diamond Doves and play sold out shows at Maxwell's tonight/Sunday and Monday. That tour brings them all the way to California where they'll play the sold out Coachella. In May they'll hit the road with Shovels & Rope, though the opener has yet to be announced for the show the Felice Brothers will play at the Bell House in Brooklyn on May 18th.

UPDATE: As mentioned in a later post, they added a 2nd show at the Bell House which is on sale.
