The Milk Carton Kids Background
In March 2011, The Milk Carton
Kids released Retrospect, which was a live album cut in Ventura, California. Retrospect came out before The Milk Carton Kids
were official and was released under Kenneth Pattengale & Joey Ryan. Following a performance at SXSW, The Milk Carton
Kids opened for Joe Purdy on his North American tour as well as served as his backing band. In 2011, The Milk Carton Kids
issued Prologue, their debut studio album. It also served as the band's first release to feature their new name. After the
album's release, The Milk Carton Kids embarked on their own headlining tour. The track, "There By Your Side," which came off
the album, was billed as National Public Radio's Song of the Day. The San Francisco Chronicle described Prologue as "bittersweet
and beautiful." By the close of 2011, fans had downloaded Prologue and Retrospect more than 60,000 times for free. By the
beginning of 2014, this figure had increased exponentially to 275,000! Additionally, Prologue was selected for the year-end
lists of American Songwriter, Daytrotter, About.com and more.
Since the band's inception, The Milk Carton Kids have
been invited to perform at some high-profile events like National Public Radio's Mountain Stage. They also toured with Old
Crow Medicine Show and The Lumineers in the summer of 2012. The tour brought them to places like Washington, D.C., Philadelphia,
Boston, New York City, Richmond, Nashville, Cincinnati, Louisville and Atlanta. In the fall of 2012, they criss-crossed the
nation again with Leslie Stevens. And, in December 2012, three of their unreleased tracks were highlighted in the flick, Promised
Land, starring John Krasinski and Matt Damon. In the spring of 2013, The Ash & Clay arrived. To support the album's launch,
The Milk Carton Kids toured with Sarah Jarosz and played Austin City Limits.
