Howdy folks!

Pickles here with some news that will surely change your life. We've been hard at work on a new Punch Brothers album and are thrilled to announce our Big Time Summer Tour! We've spent most of the month recording and we will be back in the studio in a couple weeks to bring it home. We are chompin' at the bit to share all of this new music with you - the Big Time Summer Tour can't come soon enough.

We are also thrilled to announce that for the first time we will be offering exclusive Punch Brothers' Big Time Friend Packages. When you purchase either the Oh Boy! or the Ahoy! Big Time Friend Package, you'll get tickets to some of the best seats in the house and a special pre-show performance and a Q&A session with the band. If this sounds like it will be draining for you, consider ponying up and becoming an Ahoy! Big Time Friend, because you'll get two bags of our brand new Ahoy! custom coffee, made in collaboration with our friends at Madcap Coffee. If you don't finish your entire two bags of coffee before show time, you'll be able to take them home with you in your LIMITED EDITION PUNCH BROTHERS BIG TIME FRIEND TOTE BAG. We'll also hook up all Oh Boy! and Ahoy! Big Time Friends with a signed tour poster, and most importantly a Punch Brothers' Big Time Friend enamel pin, which will broadcast to the world that when you had to choose between buying normal concert tickets and doing something more, you chose more.  Please visit the Big Time Friend Package page for full details and specifics.

A limited supply of pre-sale tickets and Big Time Friend Packages for most of the new dates will go on sale tomorrow, February 27 at 10am local time. If you miss out, public tickets go on sale this Friday.

We'll be making our way all across the US including dates with Andrew Bird, a couple of which are fittingly in a zoo. There's also a very special Red Rocks show with Gillian Welch. For the rest of the tour, we're excited to have Madison Cunningham kicking things off each night.

For those of you needing something to do with your life before the Big Time Summer Tour, you can conveniently see what we're all up to individually listed underneath the Punch dates on the tour page.

We look forward to seeing you all out there!

We're beyond excited to announce a show at one of our favorite venues alongside one of our favorite artists! Join us and Gillian Welch at Red Rocks in Morrison, CO on September 17. Pre-sale tickets will go on sale tomorrow starting at 10am MT here using the code WAYSIDE. Public tickets will then go on sale this Saturday here.

Hi folks,

We're writing to you this fine time of year from NYC where we're all back together again to work on new music for our next album!

You may have heard the first product of these writing sessions this past weekend on the newly titled Live from Here with Chris Thile. Our new song, "Locked In," was this episode's Song of the Week and you can watch a video of the performance here.

We also served as the house band throughout the show so there's plenty more to listen to - including music from guests Jeff Tweedy, The Staves and yMusic, and Sarah Jarosz plus comedy from Tom Papa. Listen back to a full replay now and watch select videos as they're added throughout the week at For example, we had the pleasure of performing "Poor Places" with Jeff Tweedy, you can watch that here.

This Saturday, December 23, we'll be performing on CBS This Morning for a special holiday edition of their Saturday Sessions. We'll be sure to send out a reminder on socials later this week or you can go ahead and set your DVR if you're so inclined.

For anyone working on some last-minute holiday shopping, we're currently running a sale in the shop! Everything is 30% off and any orders over $50 will get a free gift.

Thile’s new album, Thanks for Listening, just came out recently and you can give it a listen here. Produced by Thomas Bartlett, Thanks for Listening is a collection of new studio recordings of Songs of the Week and features guest singers Sarah Jarosz, Gaby Moreno, and Aoife O'Donovan. 

The GRAMMY nominations were announced a few weeks back and we'd be remiss to not give another round of congrats to Critter and Noam for their nominations (and to Gabe who produced both records)!

Critter and Julian Lage's Mount Royal received a nomination for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album and Noam's Universal Favorite was nominated for Best Bluegrass Album.

If you missed listening to either, you can visit their respective websites to learn more - and
