--------
 
King Crimson has performed, recorded and released material in its own inimitable manner for the past 46 years. As the band enters its 47th year of operation in 2015, the occasion is marked with the first release culled from the band's Autumn 2014 US tour. 
 
Comprised of 41 minutes of material by the newest incarnation of the band fronted by the line-up's formidable three drummer setup, Live At The Orpheum has been mixed from 24bit multi-track performances recorded at the band's two concerts at the Los Angeles venue. Featuring a mixture of new and old King Crimson material - some being performed live for the first time - the album makes an ideal 
recorded debut for the septet.
 
For those who travelled from all over the world to see the US shows, it's an opportunity to relive the power, precision and sheer musicality of the concerts. For those who couldn't attend but wanted to, it's an opportunity to hear why the concerts generated such excitement.
