June 16, 2009

The Waifs’ new live album, Live from the Union of Soul, is available today.

Live From the Union of Soul is a collection of 14 songs recorded on the road during last year’s memorable and historic Australian Union Of Soul tour and features guest appearances from John Butler and Clare Bowditch. Widely known for their infectious shows and lengthy tours to all corners of the globe, The Waifs present new songs in acoustic mode, including classic covers of "I Remember You" (initially performed as a tribute at the Australia’s ARIA Hall Of Fame Awards, and becoming a popular addition to the bands live set list), and Paul Kelly and Kev Carmody’s “From Little Things”. They also perform a barn storming version of “When I Die” and of course there is plenty of Waifs’ banter in between!
