The Barr Brothers announce new record ‘Queens of the Breakers’ out Oct 13

Today The Barr Brothers announced their third record ‘Queens of the Breakers‘ will be out October 13th on Secret City Records. You can pre-order the record here

The new album arrives after the longest-ever pause in Brad and Andrew Barr’s 20-year career in music.  Both became fathers since 2014’s ‘Sleeping Operator’ was released.  In that time, Sarah found ways to completely redefine the harp, its sound, and its role in modern music.Queens of the Breakers was born out of reflection of what home and family mean now, after the effects of life on the road.  The title track references the brother’s teenage adventures in Rhode Island – which found them and a tight-knit pack of friends descending upon the city of Newport and the famous industrialist mansion known as The Breakers wearing their mothers’ clothing, provoking the tourists.  It’s a look at evaporated friendships through the rearview mirror.
