From one of North Carolina’s most beloved musical outfits, Chatham Rabbits — singer-songwriters Austin and Sarah McCombie — comes The Yoke is Easy, The Burden is Full, their enthusiastically anticipated sophomore album. Out on May 1, 2020, “The Yoke” is an album for those that feel both more connected and out of touch than ever before. Co-written by the married couple and true to Chatham Rabbits roots, the lyrics tell stories of real, raw people, doing the best they can with the life they are living. The McCombies and their band tracked this album completely live in a lakeside cabin in rural Virginia. The title comes from the track “Oxen,” a crescendoing reminder that being tethered to another person or a whole community entirely does not negate the hard things in life — but it makes our days achingly beautiful and absolutely worth it.
