This Is The Kit release ‘Live At Minack Theatre’

This Is The Kit at the Minack 2023

This Is The Kit, the group led by Paris-based songwriter Kate Stables, are releasing their live album Live at The Minack Theatre digitally today on all DSPs.

The live album was first released in April as a UK-only Record Store Day limited edition vinyl. It was recorded on May 19, 2023 when This Is The Kit played a double header at the stunning Minack Theatre in Cornwall and is the first live album from the band. Featuring tracks from critically acclaimed albums Careful of Your Keepers, Off Off On and Moonshine Freeze, the album sees the band (including a three-piece horn section) in top form, responding to the resplendent surroundings in front of a hugely appreciative audience. 

This Is The Kit are sharing a video of their performance of the song ‘Hotter Colder’ at The Minack Theatre today and will be rolling out new performance videos of each track on the album daily through June 19th. 

Our friend Will had the slightly ambitious idea of booking us at the Minack Theatre. It’s an amazing open air amphitheatre on the edge of a Cornish cliff face overlooking the sea and so it seemd like a pretty fun idea to do a gig there. It resulted in quite an epic day of music in a very epic setting, which we somehow had the foresight to record.

Kate Stables said of the show

The band’s latest album Careful of Your Keepers came out on Rough Trade last June and was produced by labelmate Gruff Rhys. This Is The Kit will appear at Glastonbury later this month.
