The collective side project from the frontmen of Deer Tick, Dawes, and Delta Spirit is set to release its first album. Middle Brother recorded their self-titled debut in fall 2009 in Nashville, premiering the songs at SXSW 2010. The supergroup’s brand of raw, rootsy Americana showcases the craftsmanship of the three songwriters. They will next be seen at a December 20 benefit for Invisible Children in Los Angeles, followed by a spring tour in support of the album.
According to their bio: “In a time when synthesizers and laptops are taking over stages, Goldsmith, McCauley and Vasquez are leading the pack of young rock songwriters who strive to carry on the tradition of figures such as Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, and Tom Petty.”
Middle Brother will be out March 1 on Partisan Records.
