Rock powerhouse Futurebirds are set to release a 22-track live compilation, titled …Thanks Y’all, on December 1st via No Coincidence Records. The album is also available for pre-order as a 3-LP vinyl. The announcement comes with the release of the lead single, “Rodeo”, streaming everywhere today.
The Athens, Georgia-based group once again teamed up with storied My Morning Jacket guitarist/producer Carl Broemel for the latest chapter of a seamless, bountiful partnership that initially came to fruition with the 2021 EP, Bloomin’, and was followed up with the 2022 EP, Bloomin’ Too.
Recorded over 9 shows performed together, the live compilation finds the “Carlbirds” firing on all cylinders, with the best highlights captured for posterity on …Thanks Y’all. The album captures the energy of a live concert, with crisp, dynamic audio that puts you in the center of the crowd.
“Futurebirds have this unique vibe with three singer-songwriters in the band, where everyone is constantly shifting their function depending on the song,” Broemel says. “Everyone just kind of falls into place and finds something to contribute. Someone will lead the charge on one song, then fall back and let another take charge on the next — it’s something rare to see and behold in rock music, where normally there’s just one songwriter and one leader.”
Singer/guitarist Daniel Womack says, “We're long overdue for a live release and feel super lucky to have one of our mentors quarterbacking the project. Carl takes us to another level and I think the stoke translates well in these versions"
For the lead single, the band delivers an electric rendition of one of their most popular songs, "Rodeo". The 2015 fan-favorite track with over 17 million Spotify streams was ripe for the live treatment. Singer/guitarist Daniel Womack says, "The way we play this song has evolved over the years and it rocks a lot harder these days so we’re super stoked to get a live version out there.”
Thanks Y’all will also be available as a 3-LP vinyl set, which will be hitting stores on February 9, 2024.
Carlbirds will celebrate the release of ...Thanks Y'all at the Georgia Theatre in the band's hometown of Athens on December 5th & 6th. They'll follow that up with a performance at Nashville's Brooklyn Bowl on Dec 8th, and then reunite to ring in the new year with a run of four shows at Charlotte's Neighborhood Theatre Dec 28-29, and Charleston Music Hall for the 30th and 31st.
Futurebirds will be crisscrossing the country in 2024 with a full west coast co-headline tour with The Nude Party in February, followed by a run through the south before heading to the midwest in early March.
