Isis To Release A Series Of Live Albums

Posted by on May 11, 2011

Isis may have disbanded last year, but that apparently won’t stop them from releasing material from the grave. The band announced at the beginning of the week that they will release a series of five live albums/EPs that span their 13 year career. The first will be Isis Live I 9.23.03, a four song set recorded from their performance at the Fillmore in San Francisco. While this one will be released on May 31, the following albums will be released at two week intervals.

The band is also offering pre-order packages that bundle downloads of all five releases with long-out-of-print merch items including the popular “inaugural” t-shirt and hoodie, as well as the 2006 Clearing The Eye DVD. You will be able pre-order these bundles over at the band’s official website.

Fans may still be down about Isis no longer being active, but these live albums are certainly great ways for hardcore followers to celebrate the band’s 13 year lifespan. You can check out information about each live album (including track listing, titles, and releases dates) after the jump.
