John 5‘s guitar mastery will be on display in January as the axe-slinger and his band The Creatures will be issuing It’s Alive!, a brand new concert album due on Jan. 25.

This marks the first live album released by 5 and his cohorts Ian Ross and Rodger Carter and it includes 15 tracks of riffing, rocking and raucous performances. John 5 and the Creatures will also play two U.S. tour legs in early 2018 to support the album.

The East Coast leg of the run starts Feb. 1 in Orlando and also hits a good portion of the Midwest before wrapping Feb. 24 in Chattanooga. The West Coast leg starts just over a month later, March 29 in San Antonio and concludes April 21 in Tacoma, Wash.

The John 5 and the Creatures’ It’s Alive! album will be available as a double LP colored vinyl, as a CD and in digital options. Check out his webstore for more ordering details. You can also purchase a separate 24-page full-color tour book that follows the band’s tour journeys.
