Live has reformed with original singer Ed Kowalczyk.

Live split in 2009 after frontman Kowalczyk announced his departure from the band. At the time the band called it a ‘hiatus’ but later Chad Taylor said it was a split.

In 2011, original members Taylor, Patrick Dahleimer and Chad Gracy decided to resurrect Live and recruited Unified Theory singer Chris Shinn to replace Kowalczyk. In 2014 they released the eighth Live album ‘The Turn’ with Shinn.

Live has two number one albums in the 90s, ‘Throwing Copper’ in 1994 and ‘Secret Samadhi’ in 1997.

The next two albums ‘The Distance To Here’ in 1999 and ‘V’ in 2001 were also both number one albums in Australia while the Australian fans continued to show the Live love with 2003’s ‘Birds of Pray’ reaching no 3 and 2006’s ‘Songs From The Black Mountain’ reaching no 4.

Ed Kowalczyk recorded two solo albums ‘Alive’ (2010) and ‘The Flood and the Mercy’ (2013) as well as the 2012 EP ‘The Garden’. His song ‘Grace’ scrapped the bottom end of the Australian singles chart in 2011.

The Live reformation announcement will be made at their official website today.

In particular, Australian tennis legend Pat Cash, and Crane's very own Orchestra of Doom.
