The Slow Readers Club kick off their UK & EU tour in Blackburn

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.

The announcement coincides with their new UK & EU tour which starts in Blackburn’s King Georges Hall on Monday 23rd March 2020.

The dark power-pop that defined their previous releases holds a strong influence, with the brooding ‘No Surprise’ providing a powerful dose of evocative lyricism amid immersive soundscapes, while the unsettling ‘Paris’ is an undulating exploration of observational song writing and eclectic musicality.

“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 mammoth, 32-date European tour, and a number of sold out UK shows including London’s The Dome and two consecutive nights at Manchester’s The Ritz following the release of their critically acclaimed third album, Build A Tower.
