As Spafford prepares to head out on leg two of their extensive Fall 2023 Tour, another release of band selected live songs is set for October 11th.  Live Wax, Vol. 1 will be Spafford’s eighth live album collection and their first ever live release on the always popular vinyl record.  Live Wax, Vol. 1 features incredible performances of “Plans” from the February 1st show at Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland, OH and “When it Falls” from the January 16th show at The Charleston Pour House in Charleston, SC.

A special note from the band... "After years of yearning to bring something exclusive from our live shows to the world of vinyl, we found ourselves faced with the challenge of squeezing the essence of our live performances into those precious minutes per side.  Today, we're thrilled to unveil 'Live Wax, Vol. 1' - a vinyl-only series born from our passion for curating the finest live musical moments.

'Live Wax, Vol. 1' is the inaugural chapter of this journey, carefully crafted from our unforgettable '23 Winter Tour.  These two selections have been trimmed, remixed, and remastered with love to encapsulate the true Spafford live experience in the warmth of vinyl, each side featuring a single, hand-curated musical gem. We hope you enjoy this musical journey and that it brings the magic of Spafford's live experiences into your own personal space.  Stay tuned for more 'Live Wax' releases as we continue to share our musical stories in this unique format."

Live Wax, Vol. 1 is the first of a series of multiple live releases that Spafford has in store for their fans and music lovers alike.  Spafford continues to push their music into innovative and different areas, with new keyboardist Cory Schechtman now with the band almost a full year, they are hitting a definite stride.  This will be the second release which includes Schechtman, the first being Live in Nashville released earlier this Summer.

Live Wax, Vol. 1 was mixed and mastered by Emmy award winner Matt Rifino and will be available for purchase only on vinyl.  Pre-order begins October 11 @ 10AM EST, and includes options to bundle with an exclusive poster by artist Jon Rose.
