In the hopes of breathing new life into songs that weren't actually old, let alone dead, orchestral rockers Efterklang
partnered with the Danish National Chamber Orchestra in Copenhagen one September evening in 2008 to deliver one of their signature transcendental live performances. Captured on audio and video, the four-to-seven piece Danish outfit performed their second studio album Parades
in its entirety, dubbing the effort Performing Parades
. The band's first live album promises rich harmonies, energetic musical narrative, anti-climactic build-ups, and of course, everything else you heard on the last album they released.
