While touring through Europe, The Avett Brothers filmed a backstage cover performance of Jason Molina’s “Hammer Down” to honor the recently departed songwriter.
Due to complications with alcohol consumption, Molina died this past Saturday in Indianapolis.
The band provided this statement on Facebook: “We paid tribute to our dear friend Jason Molina backstage in Dublin, Ireland. Jason tragically passed away on 3/16 at the age of 39. His music has always been, and will continue to be, an inspiration to us.”
