The album, set for release Nov. 29, will be a three-cassette box set including two live September performances from Berkeley, CA, each at the tail-end of the band’s Sleep Well Beast tour.

A trailer for a short documentary also titled Juicy Sonic Magic has been dropped as well, which will detail the album’s producer/engineer Erik Flannigan’s method of recording the performance, The Mike Millard Method. The method utilizes vintage analog equipment used likewise with bands like Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin in the 1970s and 1980s.
