– The Avett Brothers announced today that they sold out their first live show in six months with about 1,500 tickets sold for a live drive-in concert at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Charlotte, N.C. on Aug. 29.
This special hometown show will celebrate the release of "The Third Gleam," out August 28 on American Recordings through Loma Vista Recordings.
Fans will experience the concert socially distanced, from their vehicles, with the stage broadcast on the speedway's 16,000 square-foot television screen.
Twelve years along, the ongoing Gleam series offers a traditional stripped-down sound. The eight songs contemplate injustice, isolation and mortality, as well as love, redemption, and hope. The lead single is "Victory," detailing the struggle to overcome mental darkness.
The track list is:
2. I Should've Spent The Day With My Family
3. Prison To Heaven
4. Back Into The Light
5. Women Like You
6. Untitled #4
7. I Go To My Heart
