Following The Van Pelt's third album Imaginary Third (2014) comes this live album recorded during the group's most recent European tour. While only active for a matter of years, The Van Pelt have grown into something of a cult favorite since they originally disbanded in 1997. And rightly so – even in that short period of time their music evolved considerably from the charged, proselytizing punk of their debut album Stealing From Our Favourite Thieves to the quiet, creeping, minimal music of sophomore release Sultans of Sentiment. Recorded on the first date of the tour – a private gig for friends in Ferrara, Tramonto came about not as a grandiose, self-congratulatory effort, nor a between-albums stop-gap, as is the case with so many live albums. Instead, this was as an opportune moment to capture and document a new chapter in the band's history – those original songs filtered through an older, wiser Van Pelt.
