Most of this performance was recorded at a soldout Opera House (for the Krampus Ball) on December 8th, 2017 in Toronto. The tracks 11, 13, 14, 15 & 16 were recorded at Le Belmont and La Tulipe in Montreal, 2016. This setlist is a close example of what our shows were like in 2016 & 2017. We would usually start off as an electronic act and then, near the end of the show, change into a full on rock band. Only three tracks were excluded from this recording (You Know Empathy Right?, I'd Love You More If You'd Be On Sale and the Tears for Fears cover Everybody Wants to Rule The World). The reason for their exclusion is simple: The sound quality was just too bad. Speaking of bad...
I want to note that the audio quality of this recording is subpar. Most of it was recorded with a Canon Mark 2 camera, which was stationed smack in the audience(s). I've done efforts to make it all sound better, but keep in mind, this is not meant to be a pristine live album. The ultimate intended goal was to capture the energy of The Scroll and the crowd. I've decided to keep most of the bum notes and the forgotten lyrics in the recording, warts and all. I've also added crowd noise on two tracks to keep audio consistency. The Scroll, as a live band, is about entertainment and (silly) intensity. We are also a very visual band. Throughout the recording, you will hear audience members react to various antics that are happening onstage. Unfortunately, these visuals cannot be captured (for obvious reasons).
I've received many emails and messages over the years from fans asking us to perform overseas or down South. I wish it could be that easy. For now, this release is the next best thing. This is for the curious.
