Violent Femmes are set to release a new live album 2 Mics & The Truth: Unplugged & Unhinged In America. The collection of live recordings include newly arranged versions of classics, improvisations, spontaneous requests, and songs performed live for the first time. The album was recorded last year at public radio stations and during other promo sessions in support of their ninth studio album We Can Do Anything.

Brian Ritchie reveals in the album's press release:

"This is the first time we've delivered a full scale recording to the public which captures the sound and spirit of the band the way we play together when we're working out songs in the hotel or dressing room. This project refocuses attention upon the repertoire as a whole by stripping songs to their essentials, conveying them without artifice, and removing them from any timeline. It's the closest we've gotten to the essence of Violent Femmes."

The album 2 Mics & The Truth: Unplugged & Unhinged In America arrives July 7th and is available to pre-order here.

Violent Femmes hit the road with Echo & The Bunnymen for a co-headline tour this summer. The Detroit area date is July 18 @ Meadow Brook Amphitheatre. The itinerary is posted below.
