On Wednesday night, October 25th, folk rock favorites The Avett Brothers made an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers to play a new song, “Roses and Sacrifice”. According to a post on the Avett’s Facebook, the performance on Late Night marked the group’s 25th late-night TV spot.

The band has played the song live a number of times since debuting it at Red Rocks last year, but it has yet to appear on any official releases. While the band hasn’t released a new album since 2016’s True Sadness, the introduction of this down-home ditty to a national audience seems to (hopefully) portend a new set of songs from the Avett Brothers in the near future.

The Avett Brothers’ appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers came on the same day the band announced their 2019 return to Red Rocks in Morrison, CO, continuing a years-long tradition of multi-night runs at the storied natural amphitheatre. The three-night run is set to take place from Friday, July 5th through Sunday, July 7th. Supporting acts for the first two nights of the run have yet to be announced, but the Avett Brothers have confirmed that Lake Street Dive—who made their own Red Rocks headlining debut earlier this year—will open the festivities on July 7th, the run’s final night.

On Tuesday, The Avett Brothers were also included in the initial lineup announcement for the 2019 edition of SweetWater 420 Fest, set to take place from Friday, April 19th through Sunday, April 21st, 2019 at Centennial Olympic Park in the heart of Atlanta, GA.

This week, The Avett Brothers are preparing for a sold-out, three-night run at Port Chester’s historic rock palace, The Capitol Theatre, set to take place from Thursday, October 5th through Saturday, October 7th.

With so much recent news from the band, and the national TV debut of  “Roses and Sacrifice”, we’re holding out hope that an album announcement is coming soon. Stay tuned!
