About this item

Public Service Broadcasting are pleased to reveal the release of a double LP/CD live album of their sold-out performance at Brixton Academy from ‘The Race For Space’ Tour, recorded on 29 November 2015.

“We first talked about the possibility of a live album and DVD a long while before Brixton and I have to confess that I ruled it out almost immediately” says frontman J. Willgoose, Esq. “I was persuaded over a few months, though, by both the reaction on the night - which was overwhelming - and of those who watched the stream as it went out live, that something special had occurred and it truly was worth documenting. Brixton had been a dream of mine ever since seeing the Manics there on their Everything Must Go tour many moons ago. Playing there as Public Service Broadcasting, and selling it out, was something I never even thought of as a possibility. It’s my favourite venue in the world and we wanted to make it a show to remember.”

The show features arena-level production crammed onto the Brixton stage with a 13- piece choir, 5-piece string section, expanded brass section, a longer set list, Smoke Fairies guesting on Valentina, a surprise special guest, dancers, pyrotechnics and more as the London-based band wow a hometown crowd with a very special performance. The release will be accompanied by a DVD filmed on the night along with an audio commentary from the band and bonus features. 

STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: PSB's scintillating mix of futuristic synths, post-rock melodies and driving chorus' have enthralled many through the years, and by all accounts their live show is every bit as enthralling as their albums. 'Live At Brixton' is a testament to their skills as a live band, as much as songwriters. Thrilling, engrossing and revolutionary.
