Promoting their newest release The Third Gleam, The Avett Brothers appeared virtually on The Tonight Show to perform the tune “I Go To My Heart.”
“The Third Gleam was finished before a virus and its carnage swept through humankind in the spring of 2020,” the band previously explained. “It was finished before the most recent injustices against black lives inspired outrage and a much-needed call for social reform and revolution. Through the fever pitch of fear over the pandemic, outcry in the wake of widely observable bigotry, and mourning over the death caused by both, we are united in conflict…put to task in the arenas of our fortitude, our morality, indeed the strength of our own souls, individually and collectively. It is a time of heightened experience; heightened response; heightened resolve. If you are reading or hearing this statement now, you are a part of it.
The Avett Brothers also graced the December 2020 issue of Relix.
