The Slow Readers Club Announce New LP 'The Joy Of The Return', Stream "All I Hear"

Manchester-based indie electro/doom pop band The Slow Readers Club have announced the release of their fourth studio album 'The Joy Of The Return'.

The follow-up to 2018's Build A Tower, was recorded at Parr Street Studios in Liverpool and produced by long-standing collaborator Phil Bulleyment. It will be released on 20th March via Modern Sky UK. . Pre-order your copy here.

The 11-track record, 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 band have also shared their the single "All I Hear", which according to singer Aaron Starkie "is about a lack of agency and an inability to affect change. That there's something happening, and you have no choice but to go along with it."
