When Rivers Meet have announced the release of their first live album and DVD.

The blues-rockers, who have just finished a successful UK headline tour, will be putting out The Flying Free Tour Live in late July, although they are taking orders now.

In a message to their fans, Aaron and Grace Bond said: “We didn’t realise quite how much we missed live music until our headline tour kicked off.

“Live music quite literally feeds your soul!  Although nothing can ever replace being at a gig in person, over the years we’ve been so inspired by live albums, and you can always feel the energy of the moment.

“For a long time we’ve recorded our live shows as it helps us to grow as musicians. We recorded the shows when the tour kicked off back in April.

“We were listening back because we wanted to pick up on things we could improve for the next show, but we found that rather than studying our every note for imperfections, we were enjoying getting lost in the energy and emotion we had felt at the time.

“You can hear the crowd, our nerves, our enthusiasm, and we found ourselves smiling. Pretty much at the same time we looked at each other and said ‘How about a live album?’”

The release date is July 29. Click here for pre-orders.
