The Avett Brothers have announced they will make their debut appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on June 4th. They will be performing a song never performed on television from their 10th studio album Closer Than Together which was released last fall to critical acclaim.
This marks the band’s second “at home” performance as they recently performed for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon: At Home Edition on April 7th where they performed “C Sections and Railway Trestles” which was first performed at the end of The Avett Brothers’ HBO Documentary May It Last: A Portrait of The Avett Brothers, and was written by Seth Avett after the birth of his son.
