The Slow Readers Club are supporting James on their upcoming national tour, which includes three London performances, just after playing their own headline show in the capital.
The indie-electronica outfit from Manchester play Birthdays on 30 April 2016 before joining the Girl At The End Of The World tour at Shepherd’s Bush Empire (4 May), The Kentish Town Forum (6 May), and Brixton Academy (7 May) at the personal request of James members Jim Glennie and Saul Davies.
“They’ve made an album called ‘Cavalcade’ which I have to say I really, really think is a very good record,” says Davies of The Slow Readers Club’s second LP.
The band’s brooding indie electro songs like ‘Forever In Your Debt’, ‘Start Again’, ‘Don’t Mind’, ‘I Saw A Ghost’, and ‘Plant The Seed’ has seen them compared to the likes of The National, The Killers, and Interpol.
Word of mouth and extensive BBC6 airplay has resulted in sold-out headline shows at Manchester Gorilla, St Philips Church, and The Workman’s Club Dublin, as well as appearances at festivals including Isle of Wight.
Featuring Aaron Starkie on vocals, Kurtis Starkie on guitar and backing vocals, Jim Ryan on bass, and David Whitworth on drums, The Slow Readers Club will start recording their third album as soon as they get off the road with James.
