Rational Youth return with 3CD rarities and announce live showsPosted on 20/10/13
Canada's synthpop originators Rational Youth return with over 3 hours of music and live concerts in Canada and Scandinavia so Artoffact Records informs us. The label will release recently-discovered Rational Youth live recordings from 1983 containing complete shows from Winnipeg and Ottawa. Included in the material are live versions of tracks which were never recorded or released (see also below for some outtakes).
The recordings were found, along with other rare demos, out-takes, and remixes, in a band member's basement, and over 3 hours of rare material will be released as part of a Rational Youth live + archives collection.
For this 3CD set the original recordings were cleaned, and remastered. You can order them right here from the label.
As part of the promotion for Live 1983, Rational Youth has reformed as a 5-piece live act and have already confirmed two shows in Sweden in 2014 (Gothenburg on May 2nd, 2014 and
Stockholm on May 3rd, 2014). Reunion shows in Toronto, Montreal, as well as in Norway and Germany are also in the works. Rational Youth member Tracy Howe also recently played NXNE with his re-formed punk band, The Normals of which we also added a live preview below.
