Schlagwort-Archive: It Won/t Be Like This All the Time

Gemeinsam shoegazen – The Twilight Sad verschenken einen Konzertmitschnitt


Dass sich die schottischen Showgaze-Post-Rocker von The Twilight Sad ab und an recht freigiebig zeigen, dürfte bekannt sein. Und für all jene, die die Glaswegians um Düsterstimmen-Frontmann James Graham noch nicht in Spendierhosen erlebt haben, hat die Band einen weiteren Nachweis in petto: In Zeiten von COVID-19-bedingten Ausgangssperren und dem einmal mehr verlängerten Verbot von Großveranstaltungen, dem nahezu weltweit nicht nur alle für die kommenden Monate geplanten Konzerte, sondern dieser Tage auch der komplette Festival-Sommer zum Opfer fiel, verschenken The Twilight Sad via Bandcamp und „name your price“ mit „IT WON​/​T BE LIKE THIS ALL THE TIME LIVE“ einen 18 Songs starken, gut eineinhalbstündigen Konzertmitschnitt, welcher so einige Highlights durch alle fünf Alben (zuletzt erschien im vergangenen Jahr „It Won/t Be Like This All the Time„) und die nun auch schon wieder 17-jährige Bandhistorie:

„On what was originally to be the date of the first of two nights at Glasgow’s Barrowland Ballroom, The Twilight Sad release ‚It Won/t Be Like This All the Time Live‘: a momentous collection of live recordings captured across the band’s 2019 tours, one of the busiest years to date for a group well used to the live circuit.“


Via Facebook geben James Graham, Andy MacFarlane und Co. der großzügigen Überraschungsveröffentlichung folgende Zeilen mit auf den Weg:

„We have been talking about recording a live album for a long time. We think this is the best we’ve been playing as a live band and wanted to document that. With 5 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 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 2nd 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 at 10PM BST. Lets pretend we’re all at the gig together. All 5 of us will be taking part and sharing memories from past gigs, sharing thoughts on playing live and many other things.

I hope everyone is doing ok. I hope this helps.

The title of our last album “It Won/t Be Like This All The Time” has been living with me for the past 3/4 years and right now that sentiment feels stronger than ever. We’ll get through this together.

Sending our love to you and all the health services around the world.

James, Andy, Johnny, Brendan & Seb

The Twilight Sad“
