Pineapple Thief release DVD

Ahead of the release of their Build A World studio EP, scheduled for release via Kscope on 25th March 2013, The Pineapple Thief have released a download-only “official bootleg” album, Live At The 013. This release is only available through their website…

The Pineapple Thief ~ Live At The 013 DVD“We’ve been talking about doing a ‘proper’ blu-ray live DVD for a while now as, after 9 studio albums, I think it’s long over due! Right now if you go on YouTube and try to dig out some live footage, all you get are dodgy phone recordings, some of which date back to the dawn of time (and we sound like we’re playing like cavemen too). So we decided to put an ‘official bootleg’ out there to show people what the modern TPT sounds like.

But bootleg gives it a dis-service really, I’m really pleased with how it came out. It’s very true to our live show and captures the energy nicely. Yes it’s not as polished as a studio recording, but that’s the whole point of a live record isn’t it? I bet Rush or Yes didn’t have computers, the luxury of overdubs and extra stadium applause when they released all their double live vinyls in the 70s! I wanted to be true to that philosophy.”
