Ty Segall's FUZZ Announce Levitation Livestream Concert
They'll perform cuts from 'III' live for the first time
Published Mar 25, 2021Back in October, Ty Segall's FUZZ dropped their first album since 2015, III, but were forced to postpone — and eventually cancel — their supporting North American tour. Now, the band have announced a special Levitation Sessions livestream event to showcase their new record, taking place on April 24 at 8 p.m. ET.
Filmed at Zebulon in Los Angeles and directed by Joshua Erkman, the virtual show will mark the first time the trio — formed by Segall, Charles Moothart and Chad Ubovich — have performed together in five years, and the first time performing cuts from III in a live capacity, an experience they've described as "alarming and electrifying after having been away from it for so long."
"After the world came to a grinding halt, it became obvious that live music wouldn't happen for some time," the band wrote in a statement. "That was initially depressing, but ultimately unifying for everyone who missed and loved it."
They added: "There was an intense sense of anxiety between the three of us. 'Playing a show' was a totally foreign concept at this point, but there was also some kind of primal instinct of how to come together as a band in real-time."
Tickets to FUZZ's virtual performance are on sale now via the Levitation website. The live recordings from the session will also be pressed on limited edition vinyl and cassette. Fans can pre-order their own copies, as well as lots of other merch goodies, through the ticketing agent now.
