The highly anticipated Live At The Forum album by The Teskey Brothers will now be officially released on all services on Friday May 15 – including on limited-edition double blue vinyl, CD & all digital services. The live album was recorded to analogue tape during the band’s sold-out four night stand at the beloved Melbourne venue last November.
“We thought we’d try and record a live album with a tape machine, which is madness, but that’s our format so it’s the way we wanted to do it” – Sam Teskey
The album release date news comes in the middle of The Teskey Brothers’ ‘Stay Home Slow’ virtual tour – where in lieu of live shows, the band have been premiering exclusive live performances at scheduled times. So far, they’ve released ‘Jealous Guy’ (John Lennon cover), ‘San Francisco' and today, their 2019 hit ‘So Caught Up’ .
Live At The Forum features songs from the band’s two critically acclaimed albums, Run Home Slow (2019) and Half Mile Harvest (2017), as well as a special cover of John Lennon’s ‘Jealous Guy’. Alongside the CD & digital release, the live album will be available on 180g double-blue gatefold vinyl. A limited version (with a different front cover) will also be made available exclusively to indie record stores.
In further great news, the band have been nominated for three APRA Awards – including Breakthrough Songwriter Of The Year, Most Performed Blues & Roots Work and Song Of The Year (for ‘I Get Up’). The ceremony will be streamed live on May 26.
