John 5 said of the recording’s creation in a recent interview that it came to being on a whim.

“I remember pulling up to a beautiful venue that we played in Sellersville, Pennsylvania, and before we were unloading the equipment, the soundman said, “Hey guys, would you like to record the show?,” the guitarist said. “We said, “sure that would be amazing!” I always wanted to have a really great recording of the show. We were a few weeks into the show, so we were really well-rehearsed, so I said, “Alright guys, let’s not jump around. Let’s just really try to get a great performance because we only have one shot – no other shows if we mess up!” So, we explained to the crowd that we would be recording. You can hear that on the recording of the album, which makes it very magical. It came out amazingly! That’s the magic of live albums to me – capturing the performance.”

He added he was so impressed by the end result that he wanted to release the recording and tour in support of the offering.

“I’m so proud of it that I wanted to put it out and also tour it like bands used to tour live albums back in the 70s,” John 5 said. “I thought that was so cool! I’ve put out a lot of records, so I thought – g********, I’m going to do it!”

The tour in support of It’s Alive is currently scheduled to start Feb. 1 in Orlando, Florida and to run through April 21 in Tacoma, Washington. The tour also includes performances in Los Angeles, California; Greensboro, North Carolina; Chicago, Illinois and other cities. The full schedule is noted below.
