Band of Horses unveil acoustic theater shows behind live album
Indie-rockers Band of Horses will support their impending live album with a winter run of intimate acoustic shows across North America.
The Seattle natives, who have relocated to Charleston, SC, will begin the nearly month-long trek with a Feb. 11 performance in Los Angeles. The 13-city outing, which includes a couple of Canadian dates, wraps up with a March 5 concert at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium -- the same venue where the band recorded the live effort.
"Band of Horses: Acoustic at the Ryman" will hit retailers Feb. 11, the same day the support tour begins. The 10-song set, recorded in April 2013 over two nights, features acoustic renditions of the group's biggest hits.
"The game plan was to keep it wild and expressive like the show while capturing it with highest resolution available," bassist Bill Reynolds said in a press release. "The electricity in The Ryman was off the charts. If that makes it to the listener, then we'll consider this a success."
The live album comes nearly a year and a half after the band's most recent studio effort, "Mirage Rock," which landed at No. 13 on The Billboard 200.
