Last month, eleven-piece funk ensemble The Aquaducks shared some stellar footage of their performance of “Rewind,” captured from an early 2016 show at The Basement East in Nashville, TN. That single arrived just in time to get us excited for Live At The Beast, the band’s full-length live album due out tomorrow!
Live At The Beast captures The Aquaducks at their prime, bringing nine fresh tracks to their fans everywhere. “Recording a live album was an easy choice for us, as we are a live band through and through,” said drummer Andrew Fleming. “We are very proud of the hours of work we put into this project and are excited to share this album with the world.”
What was it about this particular night that made them decide to release it as a live album? For the band, it’s all about the energy, and that performance at The Beast was unparalleled. “The energy in the room was electric. It meant so much to us to have so many people lend their support to such an amazing night,” said lead vocalist/keyboardist Cavanaugh Mims. Guitarist Thomas Baxter added, “I am very thankful that we recorded the album live. There was a lot of positive energy in the room that night, which is something that simply cannot be reproduced in the studio.”
That energy is readily apparent when you give the album a listen. We’re honored to have the opportunity to share an exclusive full stream of the album, which you can check out in the player below.
