Life Like is Joan of Arc distilled down to embracing it's rock essence. Gone from the band's music (for now) are the electronics and layers upon layers of tracks. Gone from their liner notes are an extensive list of musicians and instruments. Instead, LIFE LIKE is the result of four men adhering to Thoreau's famous principle, "Simplify, simplify, simplify!" LIFE LIKE is the first Joan of Arc to feature Victor Villarreal (Cap'n Jazz, Owls) as a member. The album was recorded at Chicago's Electrical Audio with engineer Steve Albini.
