The duo, who previously worked with R.E.M. on Ninetynights and the “Supernatural Superserious” video, filmed the bands working rehearsals at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre where they tried out new songs for their 2008 studio album, Accelerate

R.E.M.‘s Live At The Olympia is a two-CD set featuring 39 songs from their 2007 shows in Dublin, Ireland, where they tested new material over five nights before passionate capacity crowds. The CDs give fans the opportunity to hear those songs in their raw, experimental form, before being recorded in the studio setting, along with 29 other career-spanning songs.

The CD/DVD combo is to be released on October 27.
