Motherfolk Release Deluxe Edition of FOLD Today, Watch 'Fold I' via Ghettoblaster
Cincinnati's alt-folk favorites Motherfolk debut their latest video today via Ghettoblaster. Emotive album opener "Fold I" gets a stripped-down performance in a cathedral, immersing the viewer in a state of self-reflection.
Frontman Nathan Dickerson describes how the video perfectly frames the song's intended ambiance:
"This is the first of three live sessions we did for Fold I, II, and III. The setting beautifully captures the emotion of the song, physically putting us right in the middle of what the lyrics deal with."
Today, the indie heavy hitters release their anticipated deluxe edition of Fold, building off the strength of their original release with four unreleased tracks, unreleased videos and behind the scenes photos. Describing their sound as "indie rock with a twinge of modern folk", Fold ranges from introspective jaunts to anthemic rock'n'roll. With tireless touring and energetic live shows that draw in the audience, Motherfolk has established themselves as one of the Midwest's most exciting upcoming acts.
The band kicks off a fall tour following the deluxe release with Sherwood -- see below for details.
MORE ON MOTHERFOLK:
In a contemporary independent music scene inundated with up and coming bands, it takes a unique outfit to break through that noise. A truly exceptional group must exhibit authenticity, raw talent, and electrifying chemistry. This, of course, means there are very few of them. Motherfolk, formed in 2013, is certainly one of those most unique and dynamic acts.
Motherfolk began as a collaborative effort between Nathan Dickerson and Bobby Paver, two college friends with a penchant for writing songs with one another. In the first year of the project, the two songwriters made frequent trips to Nashville to record their first endeavor. In 2014, their eponymous debut album showcased the duo's musical prowess through a genre-bending collection of elegantly crafted songs.
Since then, Joel Call, Ethan Wescott, Karlie Dickerson, and Clayton Allender have joined Motherfolk's ranks, and the band has made a name for themselves touring all across the nation. The outfit's high-energy live performances have won over audiences from coast to coast, and their infectious musical persona has become one of the most exciting rising success stories in the indie scene.
In 2016, Motherfolk released their highly anticipated sophomore effort, Fold. Clocking in with eleven compelling tracks, the album further defines the band as an act that effortlessly melds a slew of influences together to manifest their sound into a splendidly cohesive, original pursuit. From surreal, introspective jaunts to foot-stomping, anthemic rock and roll, Fold stands tall as one of the most exciting records of 2016.
Building on the strength of the original release, Motherfolk will release a deluxe edition of Fold this October. With five unreleased tracks, three new music videos, and exclusive behind-the-scenes photos, fans can get a satisfying deeper look into the compelling story of Fold. The band will continue their extensive touring throughout the remainder of 2017, building momentum for what's to come, and they're inviting all of their fans, old and new, along for the ride.
