The Felice Brothers Confirmed As A Truck America Festival Headliner

The Felice Brothers are confirmed to headline Sunday night of the 2011 Truck America festival on September 11th at the Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, NY, alongside fellow headliners The Hold Steady and Okkervil River. The band has also added new dates to their ever-expanding fall US headlining tour - which includes a September 29th show at Webster Hall in New York City with Nicole Atkins and the Black Sea recently added as support - as well as additional festival plays at the Winocafest at Battleship Park in Wilmington, NC; Midpoint Music Festival in Cincinnati, OH; and Orlando Calling in Orlando, FL. Known for their raucous live show (check out a recent guitar-splintering performance of "River Jordan" in Rochester, NY) and indefatigable touring schedule (the band has already performed at SXSW, Coachella, the B.O.M.B. Fest, Clearwater Festival, and Calgary Folk Festival this year), The Felice Brothers will play next this Saturday, July 30th at the sold-out Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island. A full itinerary is below.

The Felice Brothers wrapped up their seven-week long spring headlining tour and celebrated the May 10th release of their fourth full-length album Celebration, Florida (Fat Possum) with two sold-out shows at The Bell House in Brooklyn, NY, on May 18th. The album has been praised by publications including American Songwriter, Entertainment Weekly, Maxim, SPIN, Time Out New York, and The Wall Street Journal, among many others, and an extensive interview with the band can be seen on Noisevox.org. The striking Ian Cinco-directed video for lead single "Ponzi," which premiered on The A.V. Club in May, can be seen here.
