Jars of Clay to Launch Good Monsters Live

Multi-platinum and multi-Grammy award winning band Jars of Clay is releasing a collection of live cuts recorded during the spring and fall legs of the band's Good Monsters tour in the US.

The seven-song live album, Live Monsters, is due out on 4 September.

Matt Odmark, Jars of Clay's acoustic guitar player, explains a little more about the album. "More than any album that we have done as a band Good Monsters was meant to be played live.

"Live Monsters was our attempt to preserve some of the finer moments on the spring and fall legs of the Good Monsters tour. It was an amazing tour, and on this album you will find performances from our college tour across the northeast and west coast, our New England club run, and even a show from our first time back in Canada since 1996," he shares.

"We teamed up with the folks at Presonus and Sweetwater Sound to build one of the leanest and meanest mobile recording rigs possible. This rig enabled us to capture every show of the tour and catalogue them digitally. We owe them special thanks in the making of this project."

Multi-platinum and three-time Grammy Award-winning band Jars of Clay launched their career with the hit, "Flood," in 1995. Since then, the band has amassed more than six million in career sales (5 -Gold, 2 platinum and 1 double platinum certification), an American Music Award nod, 17 No1 radio hits, and numerous film credits and BMI honours for song writing and performing.
