Continuing their tour in support of Who’s Feeling Young Now?, Punch Brothers will return to New England next month for shows in New Hampshire and Rhode Island.

Punch Brothers will perform at The Music Hall in Portsmouth, New Hampshire on Tuesday, October 2. Tickets for the show are available through the venue’s box office and website on $28. The following night, they will travel south to Rhode Island for a show at Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel in Providence. Tickets for the show are available through eTix for $25 and $35. Punch Brothers will also perform at the Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts in Storrs, Connecticut on Thursday, October 4. Singer-songwriter Tom Brosseau will open all of the show.

Who’s Feeling Young Now?, Punch Brother’s third studio effort and follow-up to 2010’s Antifogmatic, was released in February. Produced by Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Norah Jones), the album was completed over three weeks at Blackbird Studios in Nashville. It contains a pair of songs co-written with singer-songwriter Josh Ritter (“Hundred Dollars” and “New York City”), as well as covers of Radiohead’s “Kid A” and Vasen’s “Flippen”.

Who’s Feeling Young Now? is less evasive than Antifogmatic and Punch,” explained mandolinist/singer Chris Thile in a press release. “And I feel like part of that is us becoming more comfortable with who we are as a band, and me becoming more comfortable with who I am as a singer.”

Punch Brothers will make their “Austin City Limits” debut when the PBS television series returns for its 38th season this fall. The broadcast of the band’s performance, which was recorded at The Moody Theater in downtown Austin this past May, will premiere on PBS stations across the country on Saturday, November 3. The episode will also feature a set from The Civil Wars.
