Speaking to NME recently about the St. James’ gigs, Fender, who is a fervent Newcastle United fan, said: “I always said that if we ever got big enough to be able to play a stadium, this had to be the first one. It had to be in our hometown.”
Recorded at the artist’s sell-out gig in London’s Finsbury Park back in July, the live album release will include a standalone double coloured vinyl which is set to arrive on December 9.
