King Crimson has performed, recorded & released material in its own inimitable manner for
the past 46 years. As the band enters its 47th year of operation in 2015, the occasion is marked
with the first release culled from the band’s Autumn 2014 US tour. Comprised of 41 minutes
of material by the newest incarnation of the band fronted by the line-up’s formidable three
drummer setup, Live At The Orpheum has been mixed from 24bit multi-track performances
recorded at the band’s two concerts at the Los Angeles venue. Featuring a mixture of new & old
King Crimson material – some being performed live for the first time – the album makes an ideal
recorded debut for the septet.
For those who travelled from all over the world to see the US shows, it’s an opportunity to relive
the power, precision & sheer musicality of the concerts. For those who couldn’t attend but wanted to, it’s an opportunity to hear why the concerts generated such excitement. For any fan of the band, recent or long-term, it’s an essential purchase. With further concerts being planned for 2015, Live At The Orpheum is the perfect start for a new year of King Crimson music.
