Continuing a summer filled with live performance clips, another pair of Company Of Thieves studio session treatments have hit the web. First up is a second posting of footage from the act’s recent visit to Vocalo‘s Music Vox program, which finds the group delivering passionate live renditions of “Death Of Communications,” “Nothing’s In The Flowers,” and “Gorgeous/Grotesque.” Also up now is the band’s set for Audio Tree, which clocks in at over an hour and features soulful and electrifying versions of cuts like “Queen Of Hearts,” “Look Both Ways,” “Modern Waste,” and more. Additionally, the audio from the set can be streamed at the Audio Tree site, while the group’s Daytrotter session is also online now . Find the Vocalo and Audio Tree features below, immediately following the group’s CVU podcast from earlier this summer.
