Family And Friends Announce Tour And Garner High Praise On Debut LP

Athens, GA indie-rock group Family And Friends have announced a national tour in support of their acclaimed independent debut Felix Culpa. The band will stop in cities across the country and along the east coast through August and September, including a special hometown performance at the historic Georgia Theatre.

Following two EP’s in 2014 and 2015, Family And Friends have firmly established who they are on their new full-length Felix Culpa. The album has been steadily gaining attention since releasing in June, with positive coverage that includes Billboard, Associated Press and PopMatters, with more to come such as Relix. Felix Culpa tackles existential questions with sharply introspective and observant lyrics, while pushing the band’s sound forward with an injection of tribal rhythms, indie-pop and psychedelia. Blurt reviewed the album, saying “Felix Culpa may deal with some heavy topics: transition from childhood to adulthood; dealing with relationships new and old; searching for the meaning of life…but rarely have those issues sounded so beautiful and breezy while be tackled in 3-to-4-minute increments,” and Atwood Magazine described it as “a dazzling, expansive explosion of intimate and frenetic energies.”

Family And Friends has been flying under the radar for years, building a solid, grassroots following across the southeast with epic live performances that feature infectious anthems, a communal atmosphere and two electrifying drummers who create pulsating rhythms while they stand facing each other. With a renewed energy and a revamped sound, the band is set to venture outside of the region this summer as they take their dynamic live show experience across the country.
