Grammy nominated alterative folk band The Avett Brothers have announced today that they will be releasing their nineth studio album True Sadness June 24 on American/Republic Records via a personal letter penned by Seth Avett. Their forthcoming first single is titled “Ain’t No Man.” Avett says in his letter that the album was influenced by Queen, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Jimmie Rodgers, Tom Petty, Nine Inch Nails, Gillian Welch, Aretha Franklin, Walt Disney, Pink Floyd, Kings of Convenience, calypso of the 1950’s and country of the 1930’s.” According to the prese release for the album, the album is a display of the band’s growth though its 16 years. Seth writes, “True Sadness is a patchwork quilt, both thematically and stylistically. Wherein a myriad of contrasting fabrics make perfect sense on the same plane, this album draws upon countless resources from its writers and performers.”

The band will be headlining SXSW performances in Austin, TX this week. They’ll perform at “Music is Universal” presented by Marriott Rewards and Universal Music Wednesday, March 16 at JW Marriott Austin and at the Republic Records Showcase on Thursday, March 17 at Scoot Inn. Also, this summer they’ll be supporting the album with a fulll-scale North American headlining tour.
