North Carolina-based folk/pop band Bombadil will hit the road next month to support their upcoming fifth album, Hold On, due at the end of March. For the tour, the band will use the classic keyboards, guitar, drums and bass set up in ways both old and new to create a show full of eclectically offbeat and dynamic folk-pop music. The set will be comprised of fan-favorites from their rich four-album catalog as well as brand new songs from Hold On.
The release of Hold On is being preceded by the album’s first single, “Amy’s Friend,” a gently catchy song that has harmonies reminiscent of Simon and Garfunkel and singer/storyteller Cat Stevens.  Listen to “Amy’s Friend” below.
Tickets go on sale this Friday, February 13. Hold On will be released March 24. The album, bundled with a selection of exclusive bonus items – can be preordered here:
