Listen Agency

Brother Dege died unexpectedly on March 8th at the age of 56. His band called The Brethren announced this to the public on March 11th. The release date of the new album AURORA, scheduled for March 15th, remains. The planned European tour following the release of AURORA is of course cancelled.

The Brethren in a statement:

“Our hearts are heavy as we mourn the loss of our brother Dege Legg. Thank you to fans around the world and our loving community for your support during this difficult time. Please keep the family, band and friends in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you for everything you gave us, Dege. You will be sorely missed. “

When you listen to Brother Dege, you practically breathe in the backwoods air, fall under the spell of the swamp, and get to know the ghosts of the Delta. Materializing at a crossroads between soul-rousing rock ‘n’ roll, eloquent folk, graveyard Americana, and psychedelic bliss, the GRAMMY® Award-nominated troubadour absorbs the spirit of his home state in threads of droning absinthe-spiked slide guitar, naked vocals, and blood-soaked poetry. Turning up the amps in the dead of night, an undercurrent of bluesy distortion tosses and turns in tectonic motion beneath bold hooks as his love for seventies and eighties staples funnels into a twisted 21st century take on Southern rock. He emerges out of this smoke with a vision without comparison, bringing grit and gusto in equal measure to Alt-Americana. After quietly generating tens of millions of streams, earning widespread acclaim, and carving out a corner in pop culture history with a co-sign by none other than Quentin Tarantino, Dege pulls everyone into this world on his sixth full-length album, Aurora.
