Viva La Arthouse is Leatherface's second release on their own label and is a celebration of their 2010 Stormy Petrel World Tour that took in Europe, Canada, America, Japan and Australia. This double live album was recorded and mixed at Melbourne's famous music venue The Arthouse by Poison City Record's Matt Bodiam. The recording was made in arrangement with bassist Greame Philliskirk on the spare of the moment with the other three members of the band unaware the gig was being recorded for posterity.
