Midlake: FUV Live
When a frontman departs a band, there are two basic routes that a band can follow: breaking up or soldiering on. Fortunately for its fans, Midlake chose the latter option when Tim Smith left in 2012. Rather than crumbling, Midlake regrouped with guitarist Eric Pulido assuming lead vocals.
Last November, the refreshed and reconfigured Midlake released Antiphon, the group's fouth effort and first album for new label ATO. Basking in the glow of positive reviews, Midlake has been on the road in support of the record, launching an extensive UK and European tour on February 20 in Manchester.
Not long ago, Midlake visited Studio A for a session and conversation. Watch videos of Midlake in performance below and listen to the session now in the FUV Vault or on TAS on 91.5 WNYE this Friday, January 24, at 11a.m. EST, also streaming online.
