so Jacket fans are Jacket Junkies, what does that make Futurebirds fans?

I'm digging, digging deep in myself, but who needs a shovel when you have a little boy like mine.

If you are a Roky Erickson fan, the FBs covered him on Holloween and here is the audio link.....

Hi everyone,

Saw the Futurebirds in Ausitn over the weekend.  Really great show and crowded!  Love to see the success for these guys.

One thing of note, there Steel Pedal player (Dennis Love) wasn't there for the show.  Is everything ok?  That steel pedal is such a huge part of their sound.  I hoping he's still with the band.....

^^^Really interested if all is well?  I should've ask one of the guys or souviner guys but I was a few drinks in and happy, lol

I saw a picture of there Dallas show & he wasn't on stage for that show either  :undecided:


Because of the show being a Saturday night I brought about 8 friends to the show & they all enjoyed it.  I felt they were a little cheated without that golden steel pedal.  But still a great show.

I'm friends with one of the songwriters and guitarists of Futurebirds and asked him about the steel pedal player, D Love. He said everything is fine within the band, but D Love had a family emergency he had to take care of the past couple of days. he should be returning to the tour shortly. you guys had me scared for just a second

Bump. I kinda lost track of these guys after Hotel Parties. Looks like they were in the studio in the fall, so I'm guessing a new LP is coming this year. From recent pics it looks like they have a new drummer? And did they lose the pedal steel player after all?

last i knew was "early 2019" on a new album.
some get stoned, some get strange, sooner or later it all gets real.

I just saw them last Saturday in Oxford, MS and they tore it up, like they always do. They do have a new drummer (Jeff) after Johnny Colorado hung it up, and they have never replaced the pedal steel man, though they have had guys sit in on occasion. Most notably at their recent anniversary show in Athens, Robb.

I always forget to ask about the new record but I'll see if I can't find some intel.

They recently released Portico (Vol 1 & 2) together on a 12".  Sounds pretty rad.

I saw Womack & Cartez on their living room tour this weekend. Carter told me their album will be out sometime this year.

I'm pretty sure Carl is involved in this album.  This is all judging from their IG, so not sure if he is producing it or just guesting on it, but he was there in the studio with them.  Love that

Isn't this the truth. The guy just loves music and loves helping others make it.
I already have tickets to see him with Tyler Ramsey and Ray LaMontagne this year but I'd add Futurebirds to list if need be.  :thumbsup:

I totally second this!!!!
Saw them a few months back at the Beat Kitchen in Chicago. Small club on a Saturday night, and the place was half full. I don't get how they don't have a bigger following as they make killer fucking, and sometimes spacey, music.
Futurebirds and the Felice Brothers should tour together. Hard working musicians who touch on various genres of music.
