Listen to The Avett Brothers on iHeartRadio

The Avett Brothers didn't wait too long to give fans something new.  The folk-rockers released their last album The Carpenter just eleven months ago, but they've already announced a follow-up. 

The Avetts are set to put out Magpie and the Dandelion, their eighth studio effort, on October 15th.  And to celebrate the speedy return, they've unveiled the disc's first single, "Another Is Waiting." 


The group also released a statement on the meaning behind the album's title.  They explain that the "strange grace" of a magpie and the "youthful wonder" of a dandelion "live and breathe" inside the new record.
