October 25, 2011 - As countless can attest to, a live Twilight Singers show is truly an epic experience. For the first time ever, there will now be recorded proof. The Twilight Singers will release their first ever live album Live In New York on November 15th.
Recorded at Webster Hall in New York City this past May, the show was easily one of the highlights from the band's world tour in support of their latest release Dynamite Steps. Live In New York features 21 songs from the band's entire career including: "Teenage Wristband," "I'm Ready," "Annie Mae," "On The Corner" and many others.

This deluxe edition will feature the entire unedited New York performance and will only be available for purchase prior to November 15th. This CD will not be available in stores. Fans who purchase the deluxe CD edition will immediately receive a track: "Teenage Wristband" via email along with receiving the full album digitally on the street date.
Rising to fame as the magnetic leader of the Afghan Whigs during the 80's & 90's; Greg Dulli followed his muse and began to innovatively fuse indie, soul and electronic sounds in his post-Whigs collective The Twilight Singers, who released their first album, Twilight As Played By The Twilight Singers, in 2000. Their beloved second album Blackberry Belle followed in 2003, followed by a covers album She Loves You in 2004. 2006's Powder Burns made many critics "Best Of" year end lists. In 2008 he teamed up with long time friend Mark Lanegan to form The Gutter Twins who released the critically acclaimed album Saturnalia the same year. Dynamite Steps, the band's latest release for Sub Pop has been one of the best reviewed albums of 2011.
