The highly anticipated Live At The Forum album by The Teskey Brothers will now be
officially released on all services on Friday May 15 . The live album was recorded to analogue tape during the band’s sold-out four night stand at the beloved Melbourne venue last November.
“We thought we’d try and record a live album with a tape machine, which is madness,
but that’s our format so it’s the way we wanted to do it” – Sam Teskey
The album release date news comes in the middle of The Teskey Brothers’ “Stay
Home Slow” virtual tour – where in lieu of live shows, the band have been premiering
exclusive live performances at scheduled times.
The decision to release a live album was a natural one for The Teskey Brothers,
who’ve spent the past few years captivating audiences around the world. Their non-
stop touring schedule has included sold out shows across Australia & NZ (20+ sold-out dates in 2019 alone), New York, LA, San Francisco, Denver, Toronto, London,Dublin, Manchester, Glasgow, Paris, Amsterdam, Zurich and more. The band have also played to mammoth crowds at festivals such as Latitude Festival (UK), Firefly (US), North Sea Jazz (Netherlands), Bonnaroo (US), and at home, Splendour in the Grass, Meredith Music Festival & Byron Bay’s Bluesfest, to name a few.
2019 was an incredible year for the Warrandyte four-piece. The timeless Run Home
Slow captured the hearts of music fans and critics across the world, earning the band
three ARIA Awards (alongside a breathtaking performance of ‘Rain’ at the event),
four Music Victoria Awards and a Grammy Nomination for Best Engineer Album,
Non-Classical, recognising Paul Butler & Sam Teskey as the album engineers along with Melbourne’s Joe Carra as mastering engineer.
Run Home Slow debuted at #2 on the ARIA Album chart in August and stayed in the
top 7 for four consecutive weeks. A testament to the dedication of their loyal and new
fans alike, release week also saw Run Home Slow and their debut, Half Mile Harvest
sit at #1 and #2 respectively on the iTunes Album Chart.
