There’s been stirs about a live album from post-rock’s equivilant of the Village People (not in a bad way), Trans Am for a while now. Thrill Jockey today have released a full press release.

The album will be titled What Day Is It Tonight? and promises to chronicle the band’s tours and music from 1993 to 2008. It comes accompanied by a DVD which features a set’s worth of songs from different shows spliced together, with backstage footage and "memories long forgotten (and recently unearthed)".

It will also feature two entire live sets – one from an early Chapel Hill gig in ’93, and one from the band’s Liberation tour in ’04, in Heidelburg. The album will be available as a double LP/DVD package, limited to 1, 500 copies, from November 30.
