Car Seat Headrest are putting out a live album very soon.

'Commit Yourself Completely' is due to arrive on June 17 and will be a digital only release. It's comprised of nine tracks that were recorded during 2018 shows in the UK, US and France. Band leader Will Toledo said:

“This is a compilation of songs from shows we played in 2018. We recorded every show we did that year, and I went through about 50 of them to get the final tracklist for this album. This isn’t necessarily the best possible version of each track, but it’s some of the most fun we’ve had on stage. I particularly remember the show we did in the small French town of Amiens, maybe the smallest show we did that year, and how great it felt to be up in people’s faces with everyone plugging in to the music right away. The recordings we made of the shows came out very clean, so rather than try to artificially recreate how it sounded in the different venues night to night, I tried to give the whole album that in-your-face feeling, like we’re playing the songs right in front of you. When you’re onstage with everything happening at once, you never really know what it sounds like in the room anyways; all you know is how the music is feeling. Hopefully this will give you a sense of what these shows felt like.”

Musicians that feature on the album are Toledo (vocals), Seth Dalby (bass), Ethan Ives (guitar, vocals), Andrew Katz (drums, vocals), Grant Mullen (guitar, vocals) Gianni Aiello (guitar, keyboards, vocals), Henry LaVallee (additional percussion).

The band will play their final shows as a seven-piece in North America this summer, following this they will return to a quartet for their US shows supporting Death Cab For Cutie, a handful of European festivals and Mexico’s Corona Capital in November.
