At the time when they should have been preparing for the first of two shows at Glasgow Barrowlands, The Twilight Sad have announced the release of a live album.
It Won/t Be Like This All The Time Live collates a series of recordings from the band’s busy 2019 touring, and is initially available on a pay-as-you-want basis at Bandcamp from today with a wider digital release due on May 15th.
“We have been talking about recording a live album for a long time,” they reveal. “We think this is the best we’ve been playing as a live band and wanted to document that. With five albums of material we felt now was the time.”
“Over the past few months we were figuring out how to release the album and then covid-19/lockdown/gig cancellations happened. We quickly decided that we would release the album digitally on a pay what you want basis. The reason behind this is that we know that financially it is a worrying time for a lot of people and for ourselves included. We wanted to make sure we could give everyone who likes our band one of our gigs live in their living room as we can’t be out in the world playing gigs right now. We wanted to make sure that anyone who wants the album can afford it as well.”
“Tomorrow night we were supposed to be playing our second night at the famous Glasgow Barrowland Ballroom. We invite everyone to take part in our Twitter listening party for the live album hosted by Tim Burgess #timstwitterlisteningparty Let’s pretend we’re all at the gig together. All five of us will be taking part and sharing memories from past gigs, sharing thoughts on playing live and many other things.”
