The Slow Readers Club announce Warrington date + New Album
The Joy of The Return Out March 20th
Manchester’s – THE SLOW READERS CLUB – have announced their fourth album, The Joy Of The Return, out on March 20th via Modern Sky UK.
The band have also shared their new single, ‘All I Hear’, the first track to be taken from the album, alongside details of an extensive UK & EU tour starting in March, which will see the band end their UK leg with a show at Warrington’s Parr Hall on Thursday 9th April.
Recorded at Parr Street Studios in Liverpool and produced by long-standing collaborator Phil Bulleyment, The Joy Of The Return marks a significant change in the band’s process, with their extensive touring allowing them time to write and develop tracks and arrangements through soundchecks and back-of-van jams.
“I think it’s definitely our most interesting and accomplished record musically,” says singer Aaron Starkie. “Lyrically the album covers love, alienation, the rise of right wing populism and comments on algorithm driven propaganda. And as always, I try to deliver those lyrics with uplifting melody.”
The announcement of the album comes on the back of another huge year for the band, which saw them play a Neighbourhood Weekender, a mammoth 32-date European tour, and a number of sold out UK shows including two consecutive nights at Manchester’s O2 Ritz.
