The Breeders : 'Album de la Semaine' Live Footage, 'All Nerve' Out Now
8th March 2018

In early 2018, The Breeders performed tracks from their latest album All Nerve in front of a specially invited audience for French TV show, Album de la Semaine. Today, the band have shared some of that live performance online, with their renditions of ‘Nervous Mary’ and ‘Wait in the Car’ available to watch in full below.  

Later today, The Breeders will host a Reddit AMA answering fans’ questions for an hour from 1pm EST / 6pm GMT.

Released last week, All Nerve reunites band members Kim and Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs and Jim Macpherson – the line-up behind the iconic and platinum-selling record, Last Splash.  Recording took place at Candyland in Dayton, Kentucky, with Mike Montgomery; Electrical Audio, Chicago, with Steve Albini and Greg Norman; and with Tom Rastikis at Fernwood Studios in Dayton, Ohio. Artwork was conceived by Chris Bigg, who has worked with The Breeders since their first album, Pod.

“Music that is rich and deep and repays repeated listening.” The Guardian – Album of the Week ****
“It’s an enormously pleasant surprise to have the band back.”  - NPR
“A twisted, swirling record of gorgeous harmony set against catapulting rhythms and just the right balance of body-horror lyricism that stands firmly on its own..”  - Under The Radar
“The most adventurous Breeders album since, no surprise, Last Splash.”  - Noisey
