Doone Records is proud to announce the upcoming release of the first ever live album from IZZ. IZZ Live At NEARfest will be available December 4th, 2007. This live album captures IZZ as they kick off NEARfest 07. Recorded at the Zoellner Arts Center in Bethlehem, PA, IZZ Live At NEARfest spotlights the thrilling power and engaging force of a live IZZ performance.

IZZ Live At NEARfest will give fans the opportunity to get a taste of what those who have seen them play live already know - that an IZZ performance is truly a memorable and emotional experience.

"Our NEARfest performance really captured what IZZ is all about for me. Something magical happens when the seven of us perform on stage together and I am excited that now everyone will be able to get a sense of that magic," notes drummer Greg DiMiceli.

IZZ Live At NEARfest Tracklisting:

1. Introduction: Swallow Our Pride
2. My River Flows (from the album My River Flows)
3. Assurance (from the album Sliver Of A Sun)
4. Coming Like Light (from the album I Move)
5. Late Night Salvation (from the album My River Flows)
6. Where I Belong (from the album Sliver Of A Sun)
7. Star Evil Gnoma Su (from the album I Move)

8. Mists Of Dalriada (from the album I Move)

IZZ has performed at numerous venues and festivals including, ProgWest 02, Rosfest 04, Prog in the Park 04, CalProg 04/05/06, Progday 02/06, and NEARfest 07. IZZ released their fourth and most recent studio album, My River Flows, to rave reviews from fans and critics alike.

IZZ's musicians are talented multi-instrumentalists and adept at multi-part vocal harmonies. Lead vocals are shared between the Galgano brothers (Tom and John), while the percussion duties are split in a decidedly unique way: Greg DiMiceli plays an acoustic kit while Brian Coralian uses his various acoustic and electronic percussives to accent and enhance the rhythmic structure of IZZ's tunes. The result is a fascinating palette of sounds and a bold statement in a genre where fans and musicians too often cringe at the thought of any kind of electronic percussion. Guitarist Paul Bremner brings his own emotional, virtuosic guitar work into the mix and along with John on bass and Tom on keyboards, round out the instrumentation. The stunning voices of Anmarie Byrnes and Laura Meade on lead and backing vocals complete the unique IZZ sound.

IZZ's live performance at NEARfest, the largest progressive music festival in the United States, is sure to be welcomed by IZZ's ever-growing international following and those who are new to one of progressive rock's most exciting live bands.

IZZ Live At NEARfest available Tuesday, December 4th, 2007 at your favorite online retailer.
