In support of the new record the duo will be hosting The Milk Carton Kids Revue at Largo in Los Angeles on March 27th. The evening will see the duo offer musical and vocal accompaniment to performances from Ed Helms, Tom Brosseau, Joe Henry, Over The Rhine, Joe Purdy, Jill Sobule, and special guests yet to be announced. To close the evening, The Milk Carton Kids will perform songs from The Ash & Clay.
In addition, The Milk Carton Kids will mark the March 26th release date of their new album with an in-store performance at renowned Amoeba Records in Hollywood. They will also be appearing at The South By Southwest Festival in Austin as well as headlining an extensive North American tour beginning in April.
The Milk Carton Kids consists of Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan. While the most obvious musical reference is the classic folk revival sound of twin acoustic guitars and matching harmonies, the band both expands and contradicts that rich legacy with highly inventive guitar lines and their intricately interwoven vocals. After forming in 2011, the duo quickly built a devoted following with the simple purity of their music and their celebrated deadpan stage humor.
Three songs from The Ash & Clay were recently featured in the acclaimed new Gus Van Sant/Matt Damon film Promised Land.
