Fruition has announced the release of its first-ever live album, Live, Vol. 1, and shared the lead single, “I Don’t Mind”. The live album, out on January 7th, 2022, captures the band’s February 10th, 2019 show at Visual Arts Collective in Boise, ID.

“It was the end of a long tour, so we were definitely firing on all cylinders,” drummer and mixing engineer Tyler Thompson said in a press release. “Luckily, we didn’t even know the show was being recorded to multitrack, so the energy couldn’t be more honest and rowdy. It was so fun going back through these live tracks that it makes us feel there may be many more live albums in future.”

The preview single “I Don’t Mind” is taken from the band’s 2016 album, Labor of Love. The bluesy, roots rocker shows the band in its element as lead guitarist Jay Cobb Anderson dictates the mood while vocalist/guitarist Mimi Naja holds the audience. Naja described the song as being “about when living your truth doesn’t align with someone else’s expectation of you, and not swaying from that truth even if it hurts someone else.

Watch a live video of “I Don’t Mind”, set to appear on the forthcoming Fruition live album, Live, Vol, 1. The clip is comprised of footage bassist Jeff Leonard captured on a Go Pro, a practice he engaged in throughout that winter tour, editing the footage on the drives between shows.
