Idlewild Announce Live Album For 2016!

November 9, 2015


“a Greatful Dead-like grace which could be their best work so far” – The Independent

“…their best album yet.” – The Times

“…a genre-traversing, surprising, melodic, poetic, anthemic record with heart, smarts and soul.” – Drowned in Sound

It’s been a tremendously successful year for legendary Scottish band Idlewild as they returned to the spotlight with critically acclaimed album Everything Ever Written, which was a top 20 hit in the UK Charts.

A year after Everything Ever Written’s release, the band are set to release a live album, Live in 2015, due for release on 19th February 2016. The double album will feature electric and acoustic tracks recorded throughout the band’s upcoming UK tour this November and December.

The decision to record a live album was simple with guitarist Rod Jones commenting: ”We’ve been blown away by the reaction of the crowds at the shows this year so we’ve decided to try and capture the songs this way and put out our first live album.”

The album will be available on vinyl, CD and high quality digital formats. Vinyl and CDs will be exclusively available via PledgeMusic.
