Consider The Source Releases Second Live Album Today

NEW YORK, NEW YORK — October 22nd, 2013 — Sci-Fi Middle Eastern fusion band Consider The Source has announced the release of their second live album, “F**k It, We’ll Do It Live, Volume 2”. 

The 9-track release is the first official recording featuring new drummer Jeff Mann alongside guitarist Gabriel Marin and bassist John Ferrara. The album features cuts from a few of their best live performances over the last six months. The first five tracks were recorded by Jason Perno at Mazfest, the next three by Joel DeGarmo at Oneonta Theatre in NY, and the last bonus track by Sergei Ushakov at Nectar’s in Burlington, VT.  A digital version is now available for download at

With deep roots in improvisational jazz and progressive rock, Consider The Source provides an instrumental experience that can be best described as an “Indo-Eastern aural awakening”.  Their psychedelic fusion of American jazz, funk, and heavy metal with Middle Eastern classical and folk music translates into an eclectic musical intensity that has become so characteristic of their live performances.  Vibrant rhythmic forces and complex melodic ornamentation blur the lines between chaos and serenity, showcasing the band’s exceptional talent and otherworldly energy.
