The Dandy Warhols announced that they will release their first-ever live album on March 25. The album is the live set of the band performing the classic album Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia in its entirety. The set was recorded in June 2013 at the Wonder Ballroom in Portland, Oregon.
In typical Dandy fashion, they’re offering pre-order fun bundles at discounted prices on their website. The band also announced spring tour dates that includes a stop at the Crescent Ballroom in Phoenix.
The band had this to say about their upcoming live release:
The Dandy Warhols are excited to tell you all about our first-ever LIVE Dandys album: Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia Live at the Wonder. We realize that maybe a Dandys live album is long overdue, but we really wanted to get it right, you know? We wanted a live album with no overdubs or re-recording, so when we put that “LIVE” on the cover, we mean it.
Recorded in June 2013 at Portland’s Wonder Ballroom, Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia Live at the Wonder documents The Dandy Warhols’ 13/13/13 Tour – a year long celebration of the 13th anniversary of (arguably) our most popular record, Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia. We run through every track from Thirteen Tales in order: starting with the layers of e-bow, jangle, and trumpet on “Godless” all the way through to the sparse hop-a-long epic “The Gospel.”
Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia Live at the Wonder will be available March 25th, 2014 on CD, double-LP (with bonus tracks), and digital download from our partners at The End Records (US) & on Naive Records (GSA & France).
