We Were Promised Jetpacks could write the book on how to be a rock band. They work tirelessly. They are friendly, humble people. They are passionate about what they do, truly in it for the music and nothing else. They write great songs...
…. and they put on a killer live show.
Some bands spend forever making their album sound perfect, and then fall flat when it comes time to performing live. Not WWPJ. All the explosive energy and drama of their studio albums not only comes across in concert, but is greatly intensified. A Jetpacks concert is transformative experience, a rite of passage, an exuberant unity
with those around you.
FatCat are proud to present the next best thing to seeing the band in concert; E Rey (Live In Philadelphia) captures the spirit, the community, the power, the pure heft of a WWPJ live show. Recorded at the final show of their 2012 US tour, at Union Transfer in Philadelphia, and mixed by the band's touring sound engineer Andrew Bush.

This live album is absolutely astounding. I gave myself the gift of not bothering to look at the track list at any point, and thus the Frightened Rabbit cover was a 100% surprise. And what a wonderful cover! Great band, great album, great sounding live versions of great songs. Can't recommend this album enough. cloudspine

This recording really hits the sweet spot. Mogwai are always consummate masters of live recordings, and this release is no exception. So much flow and feeling. Like a carefully thought out compilation tape. A real art. Brendan Long
