The Bros. Landreth (aka Joey & Dave Landreth) have revealed new single, “Good Love”. The Winnipeg duo will release their sophomore album ’87 on September 27 via Birthday Cake/The Orchard and in a few short weeks, they’ll support the LP with a run of tour dates throughout North America and Europe. Full tour dates can be found below.

Discussing “Good Love” the Brothers stated, “When we wrote this song we were doing our best to channel a John Hiatt vibe. We started from there and a story began to unfold. Initially it was written as a fairly classic love-gone-wrong… two people coming to the realization that they both want the same thing, but that they won’t find it together. It’s bitter-sweet, just the resignation that they did their best and now it’s time to chase some good love with someone else. However, once it was done and we had a bit of a distance from it, we started to hear it as a hopeful song instead. Rather than two people turning away from each other it started to sound like maybe it’s a call to arms within a relationship… ‘Hey, let’s put our heads together and work this thing out. Don’t you think it’s worth it? Don’t you want some good love?’”

The Bros. Landreth released their debut album, Let It Lie, via the Nashville-based Slate Creek Records in 2015. The album received widespread acclaim, won multiple awards including a JUNO Award, propelling the band to play over 400 tour dates around the world. A Rolling Stone review praised the band’s, “quiet storm of slide guitar solos, blue notes, three part harmonies,” while musical hero, Bonnie Raitt, was equally impressed after catching the band’s set, saying, "I haven't liked a band as much as The Bros. Landreth in a long time. To hear this kind of funky, southern style rock played with such originality and soul will knock you out."

Then, the band went on a hiatus. The break afforded Joey the opportunity to release his debut solo album, Whiskey, in 2017, touring extensively and furthering his reputation for being a first-rate guitar slinger, songwriter, and performer in his own right. Joey’s booming solo career might have delayed the timeline for the brothers, yet they never stopped writing songs that would eventually be recorded for their long awaited, follow-up release.



Teaming up in the studio with drummer Ryan Voth, guitarist Ariel Posen, and longtime producer Murray Pulver, the soon to be released album, ’87, is an exciting evolution of the band’s sound, honed by thousands of hours on stage and filtered through the lens of the last many years on the road. The Bros. Landreth’s journey took some unexpected turns, but ultimately reaffirmed two brother’s earnest desire to make honest music together. ’87 is a nod to the real beginning of the band; the year they became brothers.

Today, Winnipeg roots rockers and JUNO Award Winners The Bros. Landreth are sharing “Got To Be You”, the feel-good lead track from their highly anticipated sophomore record, ‘87. The tune, co-written by Joey and Dave Landreth alongside longtime Zac Brown Band collaborator Wyatt Durette, is a light hearted earworm about being so over the moon in love with a knock-out human being. Love, however, is not a story often heard in the band’s musical catalogue of heartbreakers. Joey Landreth quotes, “Whenever ideas like this come around, I usually let them fall by the wayside. I found myself in a room writing with Wyatt he asked if I wanted to go for lunch or try another tune? We ended up with ‘Got to Be You’, and also going for lunch. I brought it home to Dave and he made a few Dave-esque songwriting tweaks, and what you get is what you got!”

“It’s bouncy, light-hearted, and feel good,” says Dave. “Three things that we don’t often combine in the Bros. Landreth catalogue of sad heart-breakers. It’s all about loving that someone and being so over the moon that you’re with such a knock-out human being. This song is so much fun to play and was such a riot to record. Joey layered the wildest guitar parts and put down one of my favourite solos on the record. Duke (Darryl Havers) added in a really fun lilting piano part that ended up being the cherry on top and tipping it over, firmly and unabashedly, into Little Feat territory.”

The track is the first taste of what’s to come on the band’s upcoming release ‘87, due out September 27, 2019 on the band’s own freshly launched record label imprint Birthday Cake (Sony Music Canada/The Orchard). Teaming up in studio with drummer Ryan Voth, guitarist Ariel Posen, and the band’s longtime producer Murray Pulver, the soon to be released album is an exciting evolution of the band’s sound, honed by thousands of hours on stage and filtered through the lens of the last many years on the road. “We’ve got hundreds and hundreds of shows and thousands and thousands of miles under our belts. This next record has a confidence that we didn’t have - couldn’t have with the first.” 

Before they were The Bros. Landreth, Joey and Dave were only looking for a good excuse to spend a little more time together. They had spent their respective early years backing up other artists and touring the world as hired musicians until one particularly long and challenging tour prompted Joey to call his older brother with a simple proposal. “When I get home, let’s sit down and make some noise together” was the call that would be the turning point – seeing them focus on their own roots rock sound that went on to be celebrated on their acclaimed debut album, Let It Lie. 

Originally released in their hometown of Winnipeg in 2013, Let It Lie was re-released in 2015 after signing a record deal with Nashville-based Slate Creek Records. The album received widespread acclaim, won multiple awards including a JUNO Award, and propelled the band to play over 400 tour dates around the world. A Rolling Stone review praised the band’s “quiet storm of slide guitar solos, blue notes, three part harmonies”. Lifelong musical hero, Bonnie Raitt, was equally impressed after catching the band’s set, saying "I haven't liked a band as much as The Bros. Landreth in a long time. To hear this kind of funky, southern style rock played with such originality and soul will knock you out."

Then, the band went on a hiatus. A break afforded Joey Landreth the opportunity release and extensively tour two solo albums, Whiskey (2017) and Hindsight (2019), furthering his reputation for being a first-rate guitar slinger, songwriter, and performer in his own right. Joey’s booming solo career might have delayed the timeline for the brothers, yet they never stopped writing songs that would eventually be recorded for their long awaited, follow-up release. “The time off that we took between touring Let It Lie and coming back together to make this next album was really difficult.” Dave says. “It was tough, but we needed to do it. Being away from each other gave us some really valuable perspective. It let us realize just how important and deeply satisfying it is for us to make music together and that’s something that we won’t soon forget.”

The Bros. Landreth’s journey took some unexpected turns, but ultimately reaffirmed two brother’s earnest desire to make honest music together. Their new album’s title, ’87, is a nod to the real beginning of the band; the year they became brothers.
