Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros will release their debut live album Live In No Particular Order: 2009-2014 on October 9th via Community Music. The collection includes cuts taken from the band’s shows, festivals, and studio sessions.
The album spans six years of the band’s career, which includes classics such as “Home”, “Janglin”, and “Up From Below”, as well as fan favorites “Truth” and “Bad Bad Love” from singer Alex Ebert’s 2011 solo record Alexander.
“To our amazement, it’s been seven years since our first show,” Ebert says. “We’ve grown up in that time. Beauty and heartache and joy stretched over that time. Our wills were tested and maybe even bested in that time. But mostly what a triumph that time has been…
“We smiled ‘so much my face hurts’, as you’ll hear. We stressed plenty too, frowned and pained, but mostly we were doubled over laughing or riding our bicycles – and danced – we did a lot of dancing. And we played.
“We went from friends to family in that time. We became (and I hold this word as near-sacred) a Band in that time. And here is an album that spans that time.
“20 songs from that seven year frame, as tips of the hat to that time we shared with you – our of appreciators, our co-conspirators, our people.”
All proceeds from the album go to the band’s not-for-profit 501(c)3 Big Sun Foundation, which is dedicated to facilitating more sustainable and communal living throughout the world.
Pre-order is now available on iTunes and their official online store. iTunes pre-order will include instant downloads of “Better Days” & “If I Were Free” (Daytrotter). For those who pre-order from their online store, the band will randomly select five fans to win a signed copy of their 3 LP gatefold vinyl which is also available through Amazon.
The band is putting final touches on their fourth LP due out in early 2016 on Community Music. It will be their first completely independent release.
