From the venue:
Carver Commodore is an alternative rock band from the modest town of Florence, Alabama.
The band is composed of guitarist and vocalist Payton Pruitt, guitarist Phillip Blevins, drummer
Noah Freeman, multi-instrumentalist Clayton Christopher, and bassist David Smith Jr. In
contrast to the â€œswampy, soulful soundâ€ that put their hometown on the map, Carver is known for
fusing garage, indie, and pop influences into stadium-worthy rock anthems. Modern alt-giantslike Cage the Elephant, Jack White, and The Strokes tend to inform Carverâ€™s guitar-laden
hooks, recording aesthetics, and signature sticky songcraft.
On October 22nd, 2021, the band released their sophomore album Welcome to the Modern
World â€” a colorful collection of songs stemming from their recording sessions during the 2020lockdown. Tracked at engineer/producer Brendan St. Gelaisâ€™ home studio in Nashville, TN, thealbum also features Parke Cottrell (Colony House) as an instrumentalist and co-producer
throughout. The thirteen tracks of Welcome to the Modern World aim to highlight the
late-millennial experience of growing up in the early aughts and onward, detailing the effect itâ€™s
had on an entire generation. Carver Commodore is eager to share their cocktail of reflective andstoried yet danceable (or moshable) songs on the road in 2022 and beyond.
