Fiery Furnaces announce live album, tour dates

It’s rare that a live album manages to capture the imagination in the same way that a studio recording does. For every Live at Leeds and Frampton Comes Alive! there’s a Garth Brooks’ Double Live (which is, quite inexplicably, the best selling live album of all time according to Wikipedia).

But the forthcoming live record from brother-sister duo Matthew and Eleanor Friedberger should make a welcome addition to their canon. The Fiery Furnaces’ live shows often find the siblings performing new takes on old favorites, turning batches of recent songs into lengthy medleys, and inviting guests such as Sebadoh’s Jason Lowenstein and String Cheese Incident’s Kyle Hollingsworth to play with them.

The album, titled Remember, is released on August 19 and includes 51 tracks, some of which stretch back to recordings made in 2005. The band is also touring, with Eleanor taking up guitar duties and Hollingsworth joining on keyboards, in support of last year’s Widow City. Here’s the full track listing for Remember and those tour dates.
