New R.E.M. - Live at the Olympia

Living Well Is The Best Revenge

For all you R.E.M. fans out there, the band has plans to release a double live album late in October titled R.E.M. Live At The Olympia. Between the two discs are 39 tracks recorded at Dublin's Olympia Club from rehearsals where the group tried out new songs for their 2008 album Accelerate. Also among the 39 tracks are some serious classics from their deep catalog, songs like Disturbance At The Heron House, So. Central Rain, Driver 8, Gardening At Night, etc. I haven't had a chance to preview it, but it seems like a filling mix of songs both old and new. There'll also be an edition that comes with an additional DVD with footage of the recordings. Keep your eyes open for it!
