The Falderals are a family affair. Rebecca and Andrew Andestic are married and have been playing music together for years. And when they rehearse with the rest of the band, their kids often come along and play with the other bandmates' families.

This summer, the Andestic family are heading out on the road for what they call their "Do What You Love" tour. They'll pack their gear, luggage and family into a van and do a multi-week summer vacation doing sight-seeing and playing gigs along the way while their kids cell CDs and watch Mom and Dad at work.

We caught up with the Falderals before the tour to talk about their new album, Witness.

Songs Performed


"Witness"
"Found Religion"
"Where Do You Go At Night?"
All tracks off the Falderals' new album, Witness. The Witness CD-release party is Friday, May 30, at the Aster Café in Minneapolis.

Hosted and produced by Mike Pengra
Engineered by Michael DeMark and Andrew Danielsson
