Avett Brothers "Closer Than Together"

The Avett Brothers – Mixed & Engineered by Dana Nielsen (Republic)

The Avett Brothers release their 10th studio album Closer Than Together (American/Republic Records), mixed and engineered by GPS client Dana Nielsen, who also mixed engineered their 2016 #1 album True Sadness. The new album grapples with the group’s personal responses to a turbulent news cycle.

“We didn’t make a record that was meant to comment on the sociopolitical landscape that we live in,” Seth Avett explained in a statement when the band detailed their forthcoming album earlier this year. “We did, however, make an album that is obviously informed by what is happening now on a grander scale all around us…The Avett Brothers will probably never make a sociopolitical record. But if we did, it might sound something like this.”
