+Live+ will release The Turn on October 28. [iTunes link]
Yes, that's the same Live as the '90s alt band that rocked our worlds with "Lightning Crashes" and "I Alone." But this is a different lineup.
In the studio, the quartet--original members Chad Taylor (Guitar and Backing Vocals), Patrick Dahlheimer (Bass and Percussion), Chad Gracey (Drums and Percussion), who are joined by Chris Shinn (Lead Vocals and Guitar)--has re-invigorated its sound with effusive energy and massive hooks.
In 2008, the original lineup that included Ed Kowalczyk initiated a hiatus, and Chad Taylor, Chad Gracey, and Patrick Dahlheimer founded The Gracious Few--alongside Candlebox's Kevin Martin and Sean Hennesy. The project's self-titled debut would go on to enjoy critical acclaim as they became a live draw in their own right.
In 2012, with Ed's permanent departure, Taylor, Gracey and Dahlheimer approached longtime friend Chris Shinn of Unified Theory about potentially joining the group. After one practice session, the musicians had tapped into the same magic that characterized the band's early days. The creative process had been galvanized and rebooted and +Live+ re-entered the studio with Shinn behind the mic.
So +Live+ is Live, minus Ed Kowalcyzk. Or Live-ED=+Live+. What a formula!
