The Avett Brothers Release New Single "Ain't No Man" Today

Gearing up for the June 24 release of their highly anticipated new album, True Sadness [American/Republic Records], THE AVETT BROTHERS have released the first single “Ain’t No Man” today! 

Fans may also pre-order the full-length now and receive an instant download of “Ain’t No Man.” Pre-order the album at this LINK and check out “Ain’t No Man’ below! 

Seth Avett noted on the new single, "I think of ‘Ain't No Man’ as a self-motivating anthem...a kind of currency to buy a little courage when you're having trouble feeling courageous on your own.”

It’s a big week for the North Carolina Grammy Award®-nominated alternative folk collective. Not only did they unveil the first glimpse of their new music, but their current North American headline tour is well underway following their first show at the legendary Madison Square Garden in New York City. The Boot called it “unforgettable,” recounting how “fans were left speechless,” while JamBaseclaimed, “THE AVETT BROTHERS hit the MSG stage like a tornado.”

Adding to their non-stop live shows THE AVETT BROTHERS have announced a handful of new tour dates throughout the summer including stops at the iconic Amphitheater at Coney Island in Brooklyn, NY and Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas. Fan pre-sale goes on sale Tuesday, April 19th at noon local time.

In addition, THE AVETT BROTHERS announced they will be performing their single and new songs off of the album for the first time on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! on the famed Outdoor Stage in Hollywood on May 3rd. Be sure to tune in at 11:35/10:35c on ABC!
