+ BAND RELEASE BEHIND-THE-SCENES DOCUMENTARY
|Ivy League Records is thrilled to release Live At The Forum, the incredible new live album from The Teskey Brothers – available on double blue vinyl, CD & all digital services! In the tradition of some of history’s greatest live records (James Brown, Woodstock, Donny Hathaway, The Who), the band undertook the arduous task of recording to analogue tape, during their sold-out four-night stand at the beloved Melbourne venue last November.|
To coincide with the release, the band have unveiled a behind-the-scenes documentary of the live album recording experience. The 16-minute video includes performances from the night, musings from the band members and a glimpse into the ambitious (and triumphant!) recording process.
|The documentary concludes 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, including, ‘Jealous Guy’ (John Lennon cover), ‘San Francisco’ and ‘So Caught Up’, as well as a special live stream on Wednesday this week. |
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 is available on 180g double-blue gatefold vinyl. A limited version (with a different front cover) is also available exclusively to indie record stores.
In further great news, the band’s track ‘So Caught Up’ took out first place in the International Song-writing Competition in the AAA (Adult Album Alternative) category and they 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.
The decision to release a live album was a natural one for The Teskey Brothers, who’ve spent the past few years captivating audiences around the world. Their non-stop touring schedule has included sold-out shows across Australia & NZ (20+ sold-out dates in 2019 alone), New York, LA, San Francisco, Denver, Toronto, London, Dublin, Manchester, Glasgow, Paris, Amsterdam, Zurich and more. The band have also played to mammoth crowds at festivals such as Latitude Festival (UK), Firefly (US), North Sea Jazz (Netherlands), Bonnaroo (US), and at home, Splendour in the Grass, Meredith Music Festival & Byron Bay’s Bluesfest, to name a few.
2019 was an incredible year for the Warrandyte four-piece. The timeless Run Home Slow captured the hearts of music fans and critics across the world, earning the band three ARIA Awards (alongside a breathtaking performance of ‘Rain’ at the event), four Music Victoria Awards and a Grammy Nomination for Best Engineer Album, Non-Classical, recognising Paul Butler & Sam Teskey as the album engineers along with Melbourne’s Joe Carra as mastering engineer.
Run Home Slow debuted at #2 on the ARIA Album chart in August and stayed in the top 7 for four consecutive weeks. A testament to the dedication of their loyal and new fans alike, release week also saw Run Home Slow and their debut, Half Mile Harvest sit at #1 and #2 respectively on the iTunes Album Chart.
