Folk-rock band Levellers who release their tenth studio album, Static On The Airwaves, on 25 June 2012 have announced an 11 date UK tour in November including a night at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Saturday 24 November.
Already being heralded as their most accomplished album to date, Static On The Airwaves is the sound of a band whose incisive lyrics, innate musicality and passion have continued to improve rather than diminish in nearly a quarter of a century of writing, recording and performing.
‘Truth Is’, the first single from the album will be released on Saturday 21 April. A Limited Edition Red Vinyl 7” version will be available exclusively as part of Record Store Day, with the digital download being available from online music stores the following day.
Produced by Sean Lakeman, who is renowned for producing his brother’s Mercury-nominated and gold-selling albums as well as Letters From The Underground (Levellers’ previous album), Static On The Airwaves was recorded ‘as live’ at Sono Studios in Prague and mixed in New York by the legendary Victor Van Vugt (PJ Harvey, Beth Orton, Nick Cave).
Sell-out tours and nine years of a sell-out festival are powerful proof of the power of the underground and the power of great live music. Renowned for their energetic live show, longevity has not diminished the Levellers’ ability to put in a performance and get everyone in a room, or field, dancing.
