JOHN 5 AND THE CREATURES (bassist Ian Ross and drummer Logan Miles Nix) are set to release a brand new live album, It's Alive!, in January. Becoming available on Thursday, January 25, 2018, It's Alive! is the first album released by the world-renowned guitarist to be featured on vinyl. A stunning 24-page, full color tour book covering the JOHN 5 AND THE CREATURES tour journeys so far will also be available for separate purchase.

Pre-orders are available now at www.john-5.com/store, with more options coming soon. Fans can check back to www.john-5.com for updates.

JOHN 5 says about the recording of It's Alive!, "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?' 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."

It's Alive! track listing:

  • "Guitars, Tits And Monsters"
  • "Flight Of The Vulcan Kelly"

JOHN 5 adds, "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. I thought that was so cool! I've put out a lot of records, so I thought - goddammit, I'm going to do it!"

JOHN 5 AND THE CREATURES will begin an extensive tour of the United States in February for a first leg, and will pick back up in late March for a second.
