The Felice Brothers announce UK tour for January 2016


“The band, its members scattered among small towns in the Catskill mountains region of upper New York state, makes music as unvarnished as the Basement Tapes of Bob Dylan and the Band, but it goes far beyond that association with songs that are impeccably crafted with literary-minded lyrics that are both playful and profound. – The Guardian

“Thoroughly engaging.”  8/10 – Uncut

“…songs that subtly but powerfully address the suddenly shakier foundations of Trump-era America.” – The Guardian ****

“Not many albums hook you from the first line..”  Sunday Times

“… the greatest campfire band imaginable”  – Mojo ****

“Delightfully disreputable” – Irish Times  **** 

“…proof that even after 10 years as a band, they’ve never lost that gritty grasp on their breed of folk-country” – The Bluegrass Situation

“Thanks to The Felice Brothers the roots run deep and the music runs pure.” – For Folk Sake

“This is a tremendous album by a truly splendid band. It’s great to have them back.” – GodIsInTheTV

The upstate New York rockers have just released their latest album, Life In The Dark on Yep Roc Records.   An album Consequence of Sound calls a “twisted American odyssey,” it pairs songwriter Ian Felice’s plainspoken poetry with the band’s musical home-brew of rock, folk and blues.  According to Felice, it explores the world “through the wrong end of a telescope into the perpetual apocalypse of everyday life.”

Recorded in a rented garage on a farm in upstate New York, Life In The Dark offers a skeptical soundtrack to the disillusioning socio-political panorama that dominates today’s headlines with “…songs that subtly but powerfully address the suddenly shakier foundations of Trump-era America.” – The Guardian

The Felice Brothers are Ian Felice: guitars and vocals; James Felice: accordion, keyboards and vocals; Greg Farley: fiddle and Josh Rawson: bass.
