Car Seat Headrest Announce New Live Album Commit Yourself Completely


Car Seat Headrest have announced a new live album: Commit Yourself Completely is out June 17 via Matador. Below, watch the band’s performance of “Fill in the Blank,” filmed at Ohio’s Newport Music Hall. Will Toledo said of the new album in a statement:

This is a compilation of songs from shows we played in 2018. We
recorded every show we did that year, and I went through about 50 of
them to get the final tracklist for this album. This isn’t necessarily
the best possible version of each track, but it’s some of the most fun
we’ve had on stage. I particularly remember the show we did in the
small French town of Amiens, maybe the smallest show we did that year,
and how great it felt to be up in people’s faces with everyone
plugging in to the music right away.

The recordings we made of the shows came out very clean, so rather
than try to artificially recreate how it sounded in the different
venues night to night, I tried to give the whole album that
in-your-face feeling, like we’re playing the songs right in front of
you. When you’re onstage with everything happening at once, you never
really know what it sounds like in the room anyways; all you know is
how the music is feeling. Hopefully this will give you a sense of what
these shows felt like.

The band is on the road this summer and fall. Find the dates below and get tickets here. (Pitchfork may earn a commission from purchases made through affiliate links on our site.)
