Pentatonix's Avi Kaplan Will Release Debut EP 'Sage and Stone' in June!

Earlier today, Avi Kaplan made the announcement that he’ll be stepping back from Pentatonix.

But don’t fear — he’ll still be on the upcoming tour and he also has his own EP coming out next month.

Avriel & the Sequoias will drop his debut EP, Sage and Stone on June 9th.

The EP “recall the sounds of modern indie folk artists” with the five tracks titled, “Sage and Stone”, “Quarter Past Four”, “Fields and Pier”, “Song For the Seeker” and “Sweet Adeline”.

“Folk music is everything to me; it’s where I come from; it’s home,” Avi shared. “It lifts me up. It inspires me. It intrigues me. And it heals me. I can only hope that the people who find it feel the same.”

Get a sneak peek of his EP below and stay tuned for more!

    So all that crap he said about taking time out to spend with family was a lie?

      I just saw your question. No, I don’t think it was a lie. He has been working on this music for a long time–while with PTX. There were times that PTX toured 8 months in a year. He does not seem to want that type of schedule and has not announced any tour or public performance dates. He has been spending time with friends and family since his last PTX show in early Sept. When he was in Japan on tour, there was a question about sleep and Kirstie remarked that Avi has the worst problem with it. He responded that he struggled to even get 5 hours a day when on tour and averaged 2-3 hours a day. After so long, that has to take its toll. He said he is putting his whole heart into his new music and he is continuing with the A capella Academy. According to Ben Bram, this was an “unfathomably difficult decision” for Avi and that he has wanted a more balanced work/home life for years.
