From Dreams To Dust has been praised by Rolling Stone, Consequence of Sound, Brooklyn Vegan, Cool Hunting, PopMatters, The Bluegrass Situation, Mojo, and The New York Times, who called the album’s last single “To-Do List” “…romping honky-tonk existentialism.”

UNCUT called the album a “minor masterpiece,” and continued to say, “[From Dreams To Dust] might be the best album this consistently weird and interesting bunch have made.” In their four star review, American Songwriter praised the album’s “fascinating, articulate, never pretentious wordplay” and said, “This album demands the full attention of the listener, an old-school concept; those that put the most into it will get the most out of it.”

In the leadup to this release the band have shared self-directed music videos for “Jazz On The Autobahn,” a stop motion video hand painted and constructed by Ian Felice that took over a month to complete, and “Silverfish,” which compiled found footage and micro insect video shot by James Felice himself.

From Dreams To Dust sees the continuation of the new lineup of The Felice Brothers that debuted with Undress, consisting of Ian Felice, who shares songwriting and vocal duties in the band with his brother James Felice, bassist Jesske Hume (Conor Oberst, Jade Bird) and drummer Will Lawrence. The album was written and produced by The Felice Brothers, and features Bright Eyes’ Nathaniel Walcott on trumpet and Mike Mogis, who mixed the album, on pedal steel.

The 12 songs that make up From Dreams To Dust follow the band’s tradition of opting to record in unconventional spaces, similar to their debut album which was recorded in an old theater in New York and their self-titled, which was recorded in a chicken coop. The Felice Brothers found their new recording home in an 1873 church in upstate New York that Ian renovated himself. Though the church had fallen into disrepair, it was Ian’s dream to acquire the property and renovate the 30×40 one-room church.
