Since they reconvened last year, Ben Folds Five have been wowing audiences, as evidenced by this stirring performance of their 1997 ballad "Brick." Shot live at the Warfield in San Francisco this past January, it's the video version of one of 15 audio tracks that appear on the piano-led trio's first official live album, Ben Fold Five Live, which is due out June 4th on ImaVeePee/Sony.

Ben Folds Five Craft First New Album in a Decade

Look for the group – which counts Folds, bassist Robert Sledge and drummer Darren Jessee – to return to U.S. stages next month with Guster and Barenaked Ladies as part of the "Last Summer on Earth 2013" tour. That trek of mostly outdoor venues gets underway in Dallas on June 17th and wraps at Brooklyn's Prospect Park on July 30th.
