Buckle up for the Snakes and Ladders Tour presented by Future Chord, a month-long road trip with South Carolina folk rockers Brother Oliver this March as they make their way to Austin, Texas. They'll be marking new territory in Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Tennessee, and Texas — and returning to favorite spots in Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina.
Click through below to find all dates and be sure to revisit Brother Oliver's new self-titled album on Spotify — an ageless psych-folk journey marked by wondrous electric mandolin tones and haunting vocal melodies. Recorded and self-produced in the band’s Appalachian studio, the album was mastered by the respected John Baldwin (Neil Young, The Rolling Stones, The White Stripes) and recently featured in in Huffington Post, Impose Magazine, Treble, and more.
Today, Brother Oliver, a familiar member of the Future Chord family, shares with us their live performance of “The Orchestra (Is In My Head)”, which is the first new song we’ve heard from the band since their self-titled record released this past August. The cryptic new song is lyrically concise and instrumentally progressive, something a bit different than what we’re used to hearing from the South Carolina folk-rockers.
Notably, the performance was filmed inside the Peace Center — a renowned 2,100-seat concert hall in Greenville, South Carolina. Circumstances surrounding the shoot still remain somewhat of a mystery, as the band has shared very few details regarding the live session.
Watch Brother Oliver’s live performance of “The Orchestra (Is In My Head)” below, and stay tuned for more exciting news in the coming weeks ahead.
Future Chord and Charlotte, NC chamber-pop outfit Drugstore Ghost are teaming up in January for our first show of the new year and a can't miss night of cascading, dreamy soundscapes.
Find us at The Radio Room on January 25th with local support from rising Upstate electronic rockers Cufue and Greenville newcomers Tulpas.

We're thrilled to welcome the extraordinary husband/wife duo Carpoolparty as the latest addition to the Future Chord roster. Garnering over 1 million plays on YouTube, their energetic vapordance sounds are right at home with fans of Phantogram, Purity Ring, and Crystal Castles.
