Turkuaz surprised their fans earlier today with the release of a brand new live album titled 040717. The 17-track compilation features original favorites like “Percy Thrills, the Moondog” and “Bubba Slide” as well as funky covers like Talking Heads’ “Slippery People”, Sly & The Family Stone’s “Babies Makin’ Babies”, and Hot Chocolate’s “Everyone’s A Winner”.

“Opening up the vault of Turkuaz shows is both a fun and daunting task. There are just so damn many of them! But through the process, we uncovered a performance that I really believe speaks to the spirit of the band, as well as the fun and energy that our fans love,” says lead vocalist/guitarist Dave Brandwein, who also mixed the new live album. “We’re very excited to share this live album with everyone and we hope it brings people as much joy listening to it as we get from playing it. Digi-digi-Digitonium. Did you ever think the day would come? Spoiler: it’s here!”

040717, which you can purchase here or and stream below, comes just as the nine-piece band wrapped up a run of shows at the Mountain Jam and both weekends of of Electric Forest. Next up, they’ll swing through even more summer festivals, including the High Sierra Music Festival, Peach Music Festival, Werk Out Festival, Telluride Jazz Festival, and Lockn’ Festival.
