about

By the time Bonobo plays London's legendary Alexandra Palace on 28th November 2014, the epic career-defining tour around his latest album "The North Borders," the band will have travelled 180,000 miles, taken in 175 shows in 30 countries across 3 continents over 18 months in front of 2 million people. If you’ve seen the show - with its incredible, finely-honed hive-mind of a band and its mesmerising light show - you’ll know that it’s also as magical a musical experience as you’re likely to find anywhere in the medium. The temptation to bandy about the word ‘transcendental’ turns out to be just too strong.

The show sees Simon Green weaving his songs into extended, hypnotic, truly live versions of themselves. The propulsive, garage-inflected drums, technicolour synths, seductive vocal soar of Szjerdene and, most of all, the uncanny ability of Green himself to paint feelings and mood in music, have wowed audiences across the globe. It’s everything live music should be; no mere rendition, but a big, shared, beautiful experience that approaches the (dare we say it) spiritual. Someone very talented has to work very hard to take an audience where a Bonobo show does.

To document, celebrate and enjoy this live performance in all its glory, all over again, Ninja Tune presents The North Borders Tour - Live. This live album will be released in deluxe packaging with a CD, a 70 page hardback book of photographs and stories from members of the band, as well as a bonus DVD featuring glimpses of hi-speed photography, capturing the euphoria of performances. There will be standalone CD and 2LP edition too, it’s an exhaustive, beautifully captured record of the show. The audio and video were recorded and filmed at The Roundhouse in London and in the incredible Pula Arena, a genuine Roman Amphitheatre constructed in 27 BC – 68 AD, and among the six largest surviving Roman arenas in the World. In addition, some of the tracks on CD are handpicked from breathtaking live radio sessions that happened whilst on tour. Packaged with the DVD will be moments of documentary footage filmed as the tour reached California, a high point of its giant run.

Ninja Tune also recently released Bonobo’s Ten Tigers 12”, which features a brand new Bonobo track from The North Borders recording sessions, entitled ‘Duals.’ The 12” is available in stores as this goes to press.
And then the last chance to see The North Borders live show in all its glory at Alexandra Palace on 28 November 2014. There could be few better venues in which to enjoy it.
