Drop-Off Productions proudly presents the return of Athens, GA-based psychedelic country quintet, Futurebirds. “The music is a patchwork amalgam of influences, including: twangy Southern rock (they’ve opened for the Drive-By Truckers), reverb-soaked psychedelia reminiscent of early My Morning Jacket or fellow Athens residents Phosphorescent, soaring guitar solos à la Neil Young and Crazy Horse, rhythmic jangle from that other Athens band, REM, multi-part vocal harmonies (which every band ought to have, dammit), and, weaving through it all, lyrical slide guitar (- Vox.com). 2019 was a busy year on the road for the raspy roots-rockers in celebration of their 10-year anniversary – In celebration of the past decade of music and friendship, this band of musical brothers—comprised of Thomas Johnson, Jeff Wilson, Carter King, Brannen Miles, and Daniel Womack—is gearing up to release their new studio album, Teamwork, which is due out on January 15th, 2020. Their earnest brand of country-tinged, sultry singsong fits right in alongside all your favorite indie-folk and Americana records. But Futurebirds are doing something different from many of those bands: Their three-part harmonies range from heartbreaking to chill-inducing, yet most of their songs possess a laid-back summery feel. Recorded at several studios (Portico, Chase Park, Rialto Row, Dialback Sound), the LP is a snarling devil-may-care batch of 12 tunes. It encompasses a seamless blend of hard rock, psychedelic alt-country and folk stylings — something signature to the unique sound, tone and attitude of the Futurebirds. With a touring schedule resembling some haphazard spider web spun across America, the Futurebirds are unrelenting in their quest to bring the melodic party to your hometown, no matter how far away the destination or how small the stage may be. Additional support to be announced. This is a 21+ show at the world famous Surfside 7, Wednesday, March 25 – Tickets will be available online at www.surfsideseven.com, the ticketing link above and the bar beginning Friday, January 24.
