Recorded January 23, 2020

Wide Release January 12, 2024

Yep Roc Records has announced the January 12, 2024 release of Watchhouse: Austin City Limits Live at the Moody Theater.

On January 23, 2020, North Carolina-based Watchhouse Emily Frantz (fiddle/vocals) and Andrew Marlin (mandolin/vocals) – known at the time as Mandolin Orange, took the stage at one of Austin’s most prominent venues in support of their excellent sixth album, Tides of a Teardrop

Originally released in 2020 as a Bandcamp exclusive, the album will now be widely available on CD, digital and limited edition LP.

Supported by Clint Mullican (bass), Josh Oliver (guitar) and Joe Westerlund (drums), the fifteen-song set features songs spanning the group’s catalogue – “There Was A Time”, the haunting “Jump Mountain Blues”, the politically charged “Wildfire” and “Gospel Shoes.”

Recorded at Austin City Limits Live at The Moody Theater in Austin, Texas, the album was engineered by the band’s longtime front-of-house technician Mark Alspaugh, mixed by Sean Sullivan and mastered by Alan Silverman at Aerial Sound, with artwork by Ishaq Fahim.

Here’s another live version of the gorgeous opening track “Golden Embers”

Formed in Chapel Hill, North Carolina in 2009, Watchhouse has released eight albums of original and striking American roots music. Signing with Yep Roc Records in 2013, they released four stellar and critically acclaimed albums with the label – This Side of Jordan, Such Jubliee, Blindfaller and Tides of a Teardrop. In the last several years, they have toured the United States and Europe, headlining venues including Red Rocks and the Ryman Auditorium while performing at festivals including Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Newport Folk Festival, Pickathon, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass and Merlefest, among others.
