I think it is....it's specifically being named and used in the JP announcement articles..|
If it would be a one-off gig, it would've made more sense to do it on St Paddy's Day or around Xmas.
My guess is this show will serve as a big promo moment for the new album, they might even record stuff to be used for more album promo later down the road.
It's not uncommon - especially these days - to play new material at a (special) show prior to an album release. Maybe this could even be considered as a (big) showcase.
Also, the band basically recorded the whole album live, which means all (or most of) the songs are already arranged for a live setting (unlike more produced tracks).
We'll see in a week! :D
