Pond have announced a live studio album ahead of their UK shows this November.

Recorded during the Fremantle psych-pop band's spring European tour, 'Sessions' will be released on November 8 on streaming platforms. The band's Jay Watson said:

"We wanted to capture how the band has been playing live lately and commit that to tape while we were in the middle of a long tour. As you play the same song for years, or even as a single tour rolls on, the way you play the songs mutates.

"Little inflections and fills become part of the song, and the structures and even the overall feeling and intent of the songs change. I always loved listening to my favourite bands 'Peel Sessions' and wanted something of our own in that vein. We hope you dig it!"

Alongside the news comes album cut Don’t Look At The Sun (Or You’ll Go Blind). The track originally appeared on the band's 2009 debut album, 'Psychedelic Mango'.

Pond's upcoming UK tour is in support of their eighth studio album, 'Tasmania', the follow up to 2017’s 'The Weather', out now via Marathon Artists. The band also return to Australia this January to perform with Mac DeMarco
