Not one, not two…not even three, but FIVE live records. That’s right, tykes. The mighty Isis have five live records coming at you. The news comes a year after the band announced it was disbanding.
The digital releases begin with Live I 9.23.03, a four-song, forty-minute recording from a performance at The Fillmore in San Francisco, which will be available on May 31.
Each subsequent recording will be released at two week intervals, with dates and album specifics after the jump.
The band’s last studio album, Wavering Radiant, came in 2009, and now, the various former members of Isis are working on new projects.
Mike Gallagher has been scoring films, Aaron Turner’s working with Faith Coloccia on Mamiffer and House of Low Culture, while Jeff Caxide has been working on something called Crone. Clifford Meyer is working on two new projects: Windmills By The Ocean and Taiga as well as continuing with Red Sparowes. Aaron Harris is producting, and working on a Lesser Key’s album at the moment.
