Ahead of the release of new live album Faces From The Masquerade this Friday, December 8th, Car Seat Headrest today share a video of the band performing the song ‘Sober To Death.’

“Another track not originally slated to be a part of this tour – it came up often enough in the polls that it soon got locked in,” says frontman Will Toledo of ‘Sober To Death’, taken from the album Twin Fantasy. “I think this hushed version gave everyone a welcome chance to breathe. While this video is taken from our performance at the Wiltern in Los Angeles rather than the Brooklyn Steel shows featured in Faces From the Masquerade, it captures the same feeling of spontaneity and community that was present throughout the tour.”

The album’s title is a nod to the band’s original tour announcement, which kindly asked audiences to mask up (for obvious reasons) and also invited fans to “accoutre yourself in whatever further costumery you please” for an evening of “music, dancing, and identity loss.” It also alludes to the by now familiar custom-made gas mask worn by frontman Will Toledo at shows, complete with an expressive LED display for eyes. In addition to the group’s four core members – Toledo, guitarist/backing vocalist Ethan Ives, bassist Seth Dalby and drummer Andrew Katz – they were joined on the tour by keyboard player Ben Roth.
