Celebrating their 20th anniversary in 2017, Los Angeles hardcore quintet STRIFE will release a special Live At The Troubadour DVD and album through WAR Records on Record Store Day. A trailer and preorders for all formats have been released.
Recorded live at the legendary Troubadour in Los Angeles, California on February 5th, 2005, STRIFE’s Live At The Troubadour showcases the band at their most ferocious, with an equally energetic hometown crowd surging on all cylinders for the entire set. Featuring the original lineup of STRIFE playing songs spanning their Victory Records-released first three albums – 1994’s One Truth, 1997’s In This Defiance, and 2002’s Angermeans — the forty-three-minute performance delivers eleven of the band’s most iconic tracks recorded to 24-track audio to accompany a five-camera DVD shoot. After a twelve year wait, the long-awaited STRIFE Live At The Troubadour live album will finally see the light of day.
Featuring fully mastered audio and video versions of the set, the audio for Live At The Troubadour was recorded by John St. James, mixed by Mike Sarkisyan and Tommy Decker, and mastered by Arthur Rizk (Power Trip, Trapped Under Ice, Cavalera Conspiracy), and the live footage was filmed by Nate Weaver, Matt Bass, Mark Kienlen, and director of Photography, Brian Hodge. Todd Jones from Internal Affairs at the time – now of the juggernaut Nails – provides guitar on the track “Force Of Change.”
