Lake Trout Live Album


Lake Trout by Laura Germida
At long last, the Baltimore-based band Lake Trout will release its first official live album. The album includes live versions of songs from previous releases as well as songs that have only been performed live, but never officially recorded. As a gift to their listeners, Lake Trout will be giving away their live album for FREE download via an innovative method of distribution called The Biggest Label Ever.

The Biggest Label Ever is a record label centered around a website consisting of free music supported by advertising. Lake Trout's live album will be the label's first release and the site will officially launch in 2009. In support of the release, Lake Trout will be playing 2 shows in December:

12/19: Baltimore, MD | Ottobar

12/20: New York, NY | Mercury Lounge

The long-awaited album comes after numerous other projects from its members. Mike Lowry (drums), James Griffith (bass) and Matt Pierce (keys, sax, flute) having been playing with the U.K. based Unkle, touring internationally and playing major festivals since the summer of '07. Unkle's latest record, End Titles..Stories for film, was co-written by Griffith. In addition, other members have been involved with side projects as well. Lake Trout continues to work on new material, and will release one of these new songs in conjunction with the live album. The song is available for free download at

after listening to these guys for some time i was finally able to catch them at voodoo back in 04. a buddy had turned me on to them with some live cds he gave me. the cds (unknown where they are) were awesome and i wish i knew where they were. anyways, its nice to hear something about lake trout because they are impressive. really looking forward to this new album.

These guys used to be great. That is until band " evolution " reared it's head and made them into another Radiohead clone.

Volume for the Rest of It is still one of my fav albums in the world, but I agree that the sound of their last album was a bit more generic. the live album should be excellent.

Listening to Alone at Last changed my life. Big in Japan now has a more original sound.

If you've seen them live then you know they're not "the next big thing." They ARE the Big Thing.

I have seen them live more than a few times. They may have had a chance to be the next big thing back in 2000. It would be a stretch to say the ARE the next big thing.
