The Disco Biscuits and Diamond Riggs Records newest live release, Rocket 3, is the entire third set of the Biscuits 2004 New Years Eve performance in New York City. Highly regarded by both the fans and the band alike, this limited-edition three song collection is as much a nod to the past as it is a glimpse into the future. Featuring an awe-inspiring 30 minute version of "Magellan" and a "Frog Legs" that segues nicely into the second half of "Crickets", this CD is most certainly all about the improvisation. As a bonus, the “Hope” encore is included on the CD.
These tracks, originally considered for release on the April 2006 double live album The Wind at Four to Fly (Diamond Riggs Records / SCI Fidelity) were moved to the cutting room floor when it was decided that a 70 minute 2 and a 1/2 song CD would not be well received at retail. However, the CD has received new life as a result of the many requests from Disco Biscuits fans that this be released in the crystal clear quality that can be expected of all Diamond Riggs live CD's.
The band has decided to answer that call as a show of fan appreciation. Though the official release date in stores is November 14th, the CD will be available through a pre-order on www.discobiscuits.com and as well at all of the shows on Fall Tour, starting with the Halloween Bash at the Orpheum in Boston.
Additionally, all shows from the forthcoming tour will be available for sale as downloads a few days after the show at: http://www.livedownloads.com/bisco/
