Upon its release, Ancient Transition received top placement at Spotify (New Releases, Fresh Folk) Apple Music (A-list Americana and Breaking Singer Songwriter).  The band will take these songs and previous fan favorites to live audiences across the U.S. on their most extensive tour  to date, supporting Good Old War starting Friday, October 5th in Houston, TX and wrapping Sunday, December 23rd in Philadelphia, PA. All tour dates are below. 

Ancient Transition is an album cast in folk-style lyricism, Americana spirit, and orchestral experimentation.  Thematically, the album is shaped by the search for home, in whatever sense that might come – person, place, or ideology – the eternal search for that thing that makes a person feel whole. Inspired by everything from their own personal, tumultuous journeys of the past 2 years to The Arrival soundtrack to a re-reading of Slaughterhouse Five, the duo carefully crafted the 10 songs that would become Ancient Transition.

Rooted in vocal harmonies, acoustic and electric guitar, piano, banjo and an eclectic range of additional instrumentation and soulful arrangements, Beta Radio’s ethereal-folk sound is the result of a decade-long collaboration between Ben Mabry and Brent Holloman.
