Unwed Sailor, the long running Post-Rock project of former Pedro the Lion member Johnathon Ford has announced plans to release a new live session EP titled Live at CommVess, on January 21 via Spartan Records.

A video for the song “Blitz”, featuring footage from the session, has been released.

In June of 2021, directly on the heels of the release of Unwed Sailor’s new full-length album, Truth or Consequences, the band entered CommVess Studio in Birmingham, AL for “an experiment of sorts — to capture songs live to tape, uncut for the first time ever”. Over the course of the next few days, the band maneuvered through five songs spanning their decades-long catalog.

Last month they also released the 20th Anniversary Edition of their post-rock instrumental album, The Faithful Anchor, via Spartan Records. Unwed Sailor will be touring with mewithoutyou in January. The tour kicks off January 6th and runs through January 24th.
