Beloved folk rockers The Avett Brothers are set to release their new album, True Sadness, on June 24th. The new release sees the band diving deeper into emotional waters, with previously released singles “True Sadness” and “Ain’t No Man” leading the charge. Today, there’s a brand new tune to check out: “Satan Pulls The Strings.”The song premiered on Billboard, and Seth Avett spoke to them about the track’s origin. “‘Satan Pulls the Strings’ started as a quiet and calm Depression-era banjo song… and somehow in the studio, it blossomed into a genre that I don’t even have a name for…the frenzied yet mechanical energy of it is a first for the band.”Listen to the new single below.
(WBNG) — Local emergency services want you to be ready for a disaster. Broome County Officials joined local non-profits to call on residents to have a plan in case of emergencies. Officials say the year showed them the need to think outside the box and prepare for anything. While haveing an emergency kit is a good idea, officials say taking that first step toward developing a plan is just as important. “Have that conversation, talk about what will happen if we have an extended power outage or you’re not going to be able to return home. Talk about that with your family to make that plan,” said Broome County Director of Emergency Services Michael Ponticiello. “We always say yeah that’s great to have it written down, but it starts with that conversation.” County Executive Jason Garnar says the floods of 2006 and 2011 helped him understand the value of being prepared.
