Jimkata Releases ‘Ten More Songs!” Live Album

“Jimkata has released their first official live album, ’10 More Songs!’, which documents the long miles and countless hours spent honing newer compositions and reworking old favorites. The album features 14 tracks recorded in 2012/2013 at many of their favorite New York venues, paying homage to their home state. 10 More Songs! chronicles the band’s evolution across their four studio albums from ‘07s fast-tempoed “Mind Crossing” to the dub-tinged “Greyhound” and sing-along fan favorites, “Chain Store” and “Night Shade” off Die Digital, as well as the unrecorded track “Soap”. The album is available NOW on iTunes at and Spotify.

The four-piece is also back in the studio with Die Digital producer Jocko Randall to record the follow-up EP, “Feel In Light,’ due out in early 2014.

    Mixed by Phil Salvaggio at 7 Mile High Studios
    Mastered by Jocko at More Sound Recording Studio in Syracuse, NY
