The Milk Carton Kids released All The Things That I Did and All The Things That I Didn’t Do, their second full-length record, in June via Anti- Records. The duo perform at the Lincoln Theatre on Saturday, Oct. 13.
Singer-guitarists Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan recorded their new album last October in the Sun Room at House of Blues Studio in Nashville, Tennessee, with Grammy Award-winning producer Joe Henry (Solomon Burke, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Carolina Chocolate Drops) and Grammy Award-winning engineer Ryan Freeland (Ray Lamontagne, Bonnie Raitt).
For the first time, the duo engaged a band for the record, bringing experienced session musicians into the mix.

As they contemplate life and death on the new album, The Milk Carton Kids have expanded their sound with their band. In a review for Music OMH, Sam Shepherd encouraged fans to embrace the expanded sound.
“Long-term fans of the duo shouldn’t panic about Ryan and Pattengale’s decision to bring a band onboard, for their music is still just as delicate and intricate as it ever was. The expanded sound suits them perfectly, giving them wider scope and allowing the duo to realise their artistic vision,” Sam wrote.
