POND are announcing Sessions, an album of live studio performances composed of songs from across their discography. The long player was recorded while on tour in the EU this Spring. The digital and vinyl release is officially out Novermber 8th, 2019 on Spinning Top/Interscope, however, those who have purchased tickets to attend the band’s upcoming North American tour will be able to pick up the vinyl at the shows. With this announcement comes the exhilarating album cut “Don’t Look At The Sun (Or You’ll Go Blind),” a live, fan-favorite, taken from their debut LP Psychedelic Mango released in 2009.

The band’s Jay Watson had the following to say on the genesis of “Sessions”: “We wanted to capture how the band has been playing live lately and commit that to tape while we were in the middle of a long tour. As you play the same song for years, or even as a single tour rolls on, the way you play the songs mutates. Little inflections and fills become part of the song, and the structures and even the overall feeling and intent of the songs change. I always loved listening to my favorite bands’ ‘Peel Sessions’ and wanted something of our own in that vein. We hope you dig it!“
