Fans in the UK can tune in tonight to see the band perform "This Girl," off their new album, Who's Feeling Young Now?, released earlier this year on Nonesuch Records. Then tune in again this Friday at 23:05 for the full, one-hour episode of Later to see Punch Brothers perform the album's opening track, "Movement and Location," as well. For additional details on the show, go to bbc.co.uk.

The Wall Street Journal's music writer Jim Fusilli, who calls Who's Feeling Young Now? "terrific," sat down with Punch Brothers' Chris Thile and Noam Pikelny to discuss their new album, their innovative and ever-evolving music, and its relationship to the legacy of Bill Monroe and Earl Scruggs. Watch the piece below.

The New York Daily News has included the band and their new album on the Top 10 Things in Music for the past two weeks. American Songwriter magazine gives Who's Feeling Young Now? four stars. What Punch Brothers " established on 2010’s Antifogmatic the band takes even further on Who’s Feeling Young Now?," says American Songwriter's Nick Zaino. "The musical leaps Punch Brothers takes are invigorating, sometimes breathtaking." Read the four-star review at americansongwriter.com.

The band heads next to Tel Aviv, Israel, for two days of performances at Hangar 11 as part of the White City Music Festival. The Jerusalem Post, in a preview of the shows, calls them "one of the most acclaimed and upcoming young American bands." Their "eclecticism, encompassing strains of everything from alt-pop and classical to discordant electronica and classic rock—and let’s not forget, bluegrass—has been the lifeblood of the Punch Brothers" since the start, says the Post's David Brinn.
