It was one of the top rock albums of the '90s and helped solidify Live's standing as a major force in the rock world. Now, 25 years later, Live are celebrating the anniversary of Throwing Copper with a 25th anniversary deluxe multi-format reissue. To help celebrate the anniversary, Live have teamed up with Loudwire to premiere the Throwing Copper outtake, "Hold Me Up."

Singer Ed Kowalczyk tells us, "'Hold Me Up' was recorded during the Throwing Copper sessions but not included on the album due to the time limitations of the compact disc. In my view, the song is as good as any on the record, so it's really exciting to finally get it out to our fans after all these years! It's like opening a time capsule we buried in the yard back in 1993 and finding a totally kick-ass song in it!"

The Super Deluxe 25th Anniversary Throwing Copper box set features the original album with bonus tracks. It includes 2LPs and 2CDs, including the band's previously unreleased eight-song performance from Woodstock '94 on a separate disc. The set comes with a 12-page booklet that includes an in-depth interview with the band reflecting the life-changing journey over that album cycle. See the full track listing below. It's available July 19 and is available to pre-order via digital service providers beginning this evening.

Live will spend their summer on the "ALT-IMATE Tour" with Bush, celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Throwing Copper album. Get ticketing info for the tour here and see the dates listed below.
