Watch: Punch Brothers Perform in "Vanity Fair" Video; Launch NYC Concert Ticket Giveaway
Next Wednesday, February 15, the day after the album's release, fans across the United States can see Punch Brothers perform a song off their new album when the band appears on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Tune in to NBC starting at 11:35 PM ET.
The band is the subject of a Spotlight feature in Vanity Fair's Hollywood issue, on newsstands now. "Punch Brothers' third album, Who's Feeling Young Now?, out this month, is their most expressive work yet as an ensemble—sophisticated, pop-y, kinetic, and profound, all at once," writes Vanity Fair's Katherine Stirling. "Punch Brothers have hit their stride as an engine of sophisticated musical innovation, and at the same time as a source of good, old-fashioned emotional release."
Danny Clinch, who photographed Punch Brothers for the latest issue of the magazine, shot a video of the band at Pete's Candy Store in Brooklyn performing the opening track to Who's Feeling Young Now, "Movement and Location," for VanityFair.com and spoke with Chris Thile about the group's evolution and where they stand now, upon the release of their third album. Watch the video here:
