The triumphant comeback tale
of Durham’s Bombadil is old news—since 2011, the band’s been steadily cranking out delightful folk-pop records that boast the outfit’s signature balance of cheer and heartbreak. That streak continues through 2015, as the band has announced the release of a new record, Hold On
, via Ramseur Records on March 24. Bombadil hasn’t returned to the graceful bombast that made 2009’s Tarpits and Canyonlands
shine, but the single “Amy’s Friend”
is still tender, sweet and a little sad. The single is available for purchase via iTunes
Bombadil will play a release show supporting Hold On
March 21 at Cat’s Cradle. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m., and Charlotte duo Sinners & Saints open.
