Middle Brother Announce Additional US Tour Dates

Middle Brother have announced that they will be touring throughout the US in March, beginning in Washington, DC, on March 2 and ending in Austin, TX, on March 19. The band has now added shows in April that will include dates in California from April 3 - April 8. In addition, Dawes, Deer Tick, Blake Mills and Jonny Corndawg will be performing full sets on select dates along the way as well. The upcoming dates are in support of Middle Brother's self-titled debut offering, available in stores and online through Partisan Records on March 1, 2011.

Additionally, to celebrate the release of the album, title track "Middle Brother" is now currently being given away for free. Originally available exclusively through the band's free iPhone app, the song is now available for download via Partisan. In a move that will bring fans closer than ever before, Middle Brother recently created their very own iPhone application - an innovative destination for exclusive news, video, photos, fan interaction, and more.

Middle Brother is the brainchild of Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes, John McCauley of Deer Tick and Matthew Vasquez of Delta Spirit, three individuals who have joined forces to make a very special record. In a time when synthesizers and laptops seem to be ruling the stages, Goldsmith, McCauley and Vasquez are leading the pack of young rock songwriters who strive to carry on the tradition of figures such as Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, Warren Zevon and Tom Petty. Middle Brother came together in mid-2009 when the three songsmiths realized, after several on-stage collaborations, that they shared a unique vision and wanted to take it one step further, into the studio.

Middle Brother will be performing at the following venues across the US throughout March and April with Dawes, Deer Tick, Blake Mills and Jonny Corndawg performing full opening sets on select dates.
