Slowdive announce live album plans, share live version of "Avalyn"

Despite their name, Slowdive have been as nippy as the quickest nips lately, and that readiness showed with their punctuality 2014 tour. If you’re a super fan of Slowdive and weren’t able to make it to one of the shows, then you really screwed up, dummy. Luckily, they’re working on a full release of a live set, and to tease the album, a free live recording of “Avalyn” has been uploaded, which you can find below.

Celebrating 25 years since their Slowdive EP, the band recently posted on Facebook to share their thoughts on their recent live sets:

When the band reformed for 2014, it seemed obvious to us to start our live shows by playing the Slowdive EP at the top of the set list. It sets out where we originally came from, and sets the scene for where we were going. And to celebrate that, we’d like to present a free live recording of Avalyn, performed during our USA / Canada tour last year. We are currently working on releasing the entire live set from that tour as a collection, so look out for news of that soon.

Soon, you — the bad fan — will be able to turn off the lights in your crap-filled apartment, set up cardboard cutouts of dads, press play on your Zune, and pretend you’re finally at that Slowdive concert you missed.
