I realize that doing so will give you unfairly high expectations for this band, but I cannot help comparing The Lost Brothers to The Grateful Dead. With soft and sweet harmonies and instrumentation, the Lost Brothers create incredibly catchy tunes that run through your head all day. Much like when I listen to the Grateful Dead, I am caught humming their infectious yet soothing melodies which ease my troubling mind. The Lost Brothers are a veteran Irish band, with the upcoming album The Passing of the Night being their third release, but first in the United States. They will shortly embark on a US tour in support of Glen Hansard. So make haste and tell your friends about them now if you want to look cool when they make a splash with their tour and new record out September 25th. Check out a behind the scenes look at the band in the studio with Brendan Benson along with tour dates below.
