Published Feb 25, 2013South Carolina folk duo Shovels & Rope have a Canadian deal with Dine Alone Records, and they are promoting their debut album, last year's O' Be Joyful, with a music video for album opener "Birmingham."
The clip for this stomping alt-country number portrays Shovels & Rope as a couple of kids who act well beyond their years. They fix up a truck and hit the road before playing a live show and running into a bit of trouble with their dog. Canine lovers needn't worry, however, since everything is resolved in the end.
This spring, Shovels & Rope will be touring North America with Lucero. Their Canadian dates are below, while the full schedule can be viewed at their website.
