The Defibulators continue to confirm more New York City live dates in support of their debut album, Corn Money, which is released through City Salvage Records. The band just returned from touring throughout the country, including SXSW. During this tour, The Defibulators developed a fanbase outside of New York City with strong turnouts in Philadelphia, Chicago, Austin, Minneapolis, Nashville, Kansas City, Dallas/Fort Worth and Chapel Hill, to name a few. New live dates have been confirmed.

Emerging from the thriving roots scene in New York City, this septet wields an arsenal of instruments (upright bass, banjo, fiddle, backhills harp, Telecaster, and junkyard percussion) with relentless energy and virtuosity. AM NEW YORK describes the band as “One of the most engaging live acts on the NYC roots scene.”
