Been Obscene to Release Unplugged 2LP in April

It was a genuine bummer late last year when Austrian heavy psych four-piece Been Obscene announced that the acoustic show they were playing Dec. 30 in their native Salzburg would also be their last as a band. I don’t know what happened to bring their dissolution, but it happened even as word was coming out of their recording a third album and follow-up to 2011’s Night o’ Mine (review here), which was released on Elektrohasch. I guess sometimes that’s just how it goes.

The good news is that the Dec. 30 show was apparently recorded, audio and video, and as a result, Been Obscene will release Unplugged by the end of April. The double-LP is set to contain songs from what would’ve been that third full-length, so I suppose it’s as close as we’ll get to hearing where they might’ve gone sonically had their next outing come to fruition.

Bittersweet news off the PR wire:

Made out of 180g finest colored vinyl, limited to 300 pieces and shipped in a gatefold cover, this double LP was recorded live at the Danspaleis circus tent in Salzburg, December 30th, 2013.

It contains old, recent and unreleased songs, representing Been Obscene’s journey in the last couple of years, arranged and played live and unplugged only for this special occasion.

As a bonus every LP contains a download code of about 40 minutes full hd video of the night’s performance as well as a code for digital download.

To make it even more special you are also able to get your LP signed personally and/or add a surprise shirt with the size of your choice.
