GOV'T MULE - BRING ON THE MUSIC
LIVE AT THE CAPITOL THEATRE
Rock titans Gov’t Mule have announced the release of Bring On The Music – Live at The Capitol Theatre, a brand new live CD/DVD package out June 28th via Provogue / Mascot Label Group. Filmed at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY, on April 27th and 28th, 2018, the 9-camera video shoot was directed by renowned music photographer and director Danny Clinch (Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen, Foo Fighters, Phish). The release features more than 2 hours of live music, a full-length concert film, interviews with the band, behind-the-scenes footage, photos shot by Danny Clinch over the years, and more.
This is the first time that Gov’t Mule’s updated stage set and production have been filmed, bringing the excitement and spectacle of a Gov’t Mule show directly into fans’ homes. CLICK HERE to watch the teaser for Bring On The Music – Live at The Capitol Theatre. The release will be available in a variety of configurations: a 2 CD/2 DVD deluxe package (the CD and DVD feature entirely different track lists and includes bonus videos of “Soulshine” and “Traveling Tune”), two separate double-vinyl packages, digital, Blu-ray and a 2-CD package (featuring audio from the film). CLICK HERE to pre-order and for more details on each offering.
The title, Bring On The Music, taken from Gov’t Mule’s song of the same name that touches upon the passing of time and appreciating life’s journey, is a nod to the band’s treasured relationship with their fans. The Capitol Theatre has been the backdrop of many unforgettable shows for the band and is one of Gov’t Mule’s favorite venues to play. Inviting longtime Mule photographer and friend Danny Clinch to direct the film was also something of a destined choice, as Clinch’s relationship with Haynes pre-dates the band’s formation. A wide-ranging song selection from Gov’t Mule’s acclaimed catalog is featured on the deluxe release. Highlights include “Life Before Insanity” (the title track from their 2000 studio album), “Mr. Man” (from their 2004 album Déjà Voodoo) and several songs from the band’s most recent studio album Revolution Come… Revolution Go.
The news of the live release comes alongside the announcement of Gov’t Mule’s summer tour kicking off June 21st in Cincinnati, OH. Pre-sale tickets will be available Wednesday May 8th. Public on-sale begins Friday May 10th. Please visit www.mule.net for all ticketing details.
