Album News: Fat Freddy’s Drop release ‘Live At The Roundhouse’ ahead of Splendour
New Zealand’s reggae/soul powerhouse, Fat Freddy’s Drop, have announced the release of a new live album, ‘Live At The Roundhouse’, on 16th July – just ahead of their highly anticipated performance at Australia’s Splendour In The Grass festival!
Recorded at London’s legendary Roundhouse - a converted rail roundhouse famous for hosting everyone from Led Zeppelin to The Doors in the 60′ s, ‘Live At The Roundhouse’ documents an epic performance from Fat Freddy’s Drop in December 2008.
‘Live At The Roundhouse’ inherently carries the relaxed tradition of the band’s performance, as they improvise and shift through tangled riffs and rhythms. The release comes as the band round up a national tour of their native New Zealand, before embarking on an international globe-trotting mission including Australia’s Splendour In The Grass and dates tour across the USA and Europe.
The new album from Fat Freddys Drop, ‘Live At The Roundhouse’ is out 23 July on The Drop through Inertia
