ImAVeePee Records/Sony Music is proud to release Ben Folds Five Live, the first live album from piano-pop trio Ben Folds Five. Recorded in 2012 on their first tour in more than a decade, this new set - available on CD and double-vinyl - will be the perfect prelude to the band's spot on the Last Summer on Earth Tour, which will see Ben Folds Five filling amphitheaters across America alongside Barenaked Ladies and Guster.
For longtime fans of Ben Folds' biting, piano-based power-pop songs, the past two years have been full of excitement. In 2011, Folds reunited with bassist Robert Sledge and drummer Darren Jessee to record the first new Ben Folds Five songs since 1999 for the career-spanning compilation The Best Imitation Of Myself: A Retrospective. Inspired by the collaborative spark after so many years apart, the trio reconvened in Folds' Nashville studio to record their fourth studio album, The Sound Of The Life Of The Mind. The album was an immediate hit, peaking within Billboard's Top 10 - the band's highest-charting release.
Ben Folds Five consistently thrills audiences with their high energy performances, and Ben Folds Five Live captures the band in top form across four continents through 2012 and 2013. The band deliver powerful renditions of their most beloved classics like "Jackson Cannery," "Brick" and "Song For The Dumped" as well as new hits from The Sound Of The Life Of The Mind, including "Do It Anyway," "Draw A Crowd" and "Sky High."
