Public Service Broadcasting are pleased to announce the forthcoming release of a double LP/CD live album of their sold-out performance at London’s Brixton Academy. The album, entitled Public Service Broadcasting Live At Brixton, will be released on December 2, 2016 and was recorded during the band’s The Race For Space tour on November 29, 2015.
A taster of this release can be viewed as the band perform their celebration of the moon landings with crowd favorite, “Go!”. Watch here
“We first talked about the possibility of a live album and DVD a long while before Brixton and I have to confess that I ruled it out almost immediately” says frontman J. Willgoose, Esq.
“I was persuaded over a few months, though, by both the reaction on the night – which was overwhelming – and of those who watched the stream as it went out live, that something special had occurred and it truly was worth documenting.
Brixton had been a dream of mine ever since seeing the Manics there on their Everything Must Go tour many moons ago. Playing there as Public Service Broadcasting, and selling it out, was something I never even thought of as a possibility. It’s my favourite venue in the world and we wanted to make it a show to remember.”
The show features arena-level production crammed onto the Brixton stage with a 13-piece choir, 5-piece string section, expanded brass section, a longer set list, Smoke Fairies guesting on Valentina, a surprise special guest, dancers, pyrotechnics and more as the London-based band wow a hometown crowd with a very special performance.
The release will be accompanied by a DVD filmed on the night along with an audio commentary from the band and bonus features.
