BETA RADIO SET TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM ANCIENT TRANSITION ON SEPTEMBER 14th

Wilmington, NC indie folk duo Beta Radio will release their Nettwerk debut albumAncient Transition on September 14th.  The band will hit the road this fall as support for Good Old War, starting Friday, October 5th in Houston, TX. All tour dates are below.

Ancient Transition is an album cast in folk-style lyricism, Americana spirit, and orchestral experimentation.  Thematically, the album is shaped by the search for home, in whatever sense that might come – person, place, or ideology – the eternal search for that thing that makes a person feel whole. Inspired by everything from their own personal, tumultuous journeys of the past 2 years to The Arrival soundtrack to a re-reading of Slaughterhouse Five, the duo carefully crafted the 10 songs that would become Ancient Transition. They recently released album track “Tongue Tied,” of which Atwoodcommented, Brimming with poignant beauty and shivering warmth, Beta Radio’s Tongue Tied captures the wayward feeling of longing for home, when we don’t have that place to call our own.”

Rooted in vocal harmonies, acoustic and electric guitar, piano, banjo and an eclectic range of additional instrumentation and soulful arrangements, Beta Radio’s ethereal-folk sound is the result of a decade-long collaboration between Ben Mabry and Brent Holloman.
