Great news for Fitz and the Tantrums fans (and really, who doesn’t love the throw-back stylings of Fitz and co?). The Motown-inspired group is currently giving away a second FREE 5-song EP recorded live at the House of Blues in Boston! The EP includes live versions of three Fitz tracks — “News 4 U,” “Pickin’ Up The Pieces,” and “Breakin’ The Chains of Love” — plus live covers of “Sweet Dreams” (originally by the Eurythmics) and “Steady As She Goes” (originally by The Raconteurs).

The LA-based six-piece is currently in Hollywood’s Sound Factory Studios crafting their sophomore album with producer Tony Hoffer (Beck, Depeche Mode, The Temper Trap). The album should be out in October, but if you want to know what’s happening in the interim, just head over to the band’s website where they are documenting the entire process with daily videos, photos, and audio clips.
