The Slow Readers Club come out of the shadows


The Slow Readers Club are back with a new single, video, album, and tour.

‘Through The Shadows’, accompanied by a clip shot live at the band’s sold-out headline show at Manchester’s Albert Hall, precedes the LP ‘Build A Tower’, which is released on 4 May.

“We’re really proud of the record as we’ve learned a lot since our last, self-released, album. ‘Build A Tower’ feels like a big step up,” say The Slow Readers Club of the record that also features their previous single ‘Lunatic’.

“Even though fans have heard a couple of the tracks played on the last tour, there’s a lot we’ve been holding back until they had the album in their hands, so we’re also looking forward to getting out and playing live.

“We’re excited to see what people make of our new music,” add singer Aaron Starkie, guitarist Kurtis Starkie, bass player James Ryan, and drummer David Whitworth.

Recorded at Bury’s Edwin Street Recording Studios with Gaz Coombes producer Phil Bulleyment, Build A Tower follows The Slow Readers Club’s independently released 2011 eponymous debut and 2015’s ‘Cavalcade’.

The album will be supported by a UK tour in April and May (including Islington Assembly Hall on 25 May), as well as appearances at Liverpool Sound City, Stag and Dagger Festival, and Kendall Calling.
