For their first live set in six months, The Avett Brothers are putting on a drive-in concert at the Charlotte Motor Speedway on August 29. Tickets go on sale on July 17. Scott and Seth Avett announced the show via a YouTube video on Tuesday, adding that there will be room for more than 1,500 cars and their live set is accompanied by the site’s 16,000-square-foot digital screen. 

The news comes shortly after the band’s newest record was announced. The Third Gleam comes out on August 29, a day after the Speedway concert. Ticket-holders for the show can also purchase a limited-edition vinyl version of the LP.

The Avett Brothers most recently appeared on our cover with the March issue of Charlotte magazine. You can read Greg Lacour’s oral history of the band’s rise to the success, as well as garner insights into the making of their past records, here.
