|The Slow Readers Club release their highly anticipated second album ‘Cavalcade’ on Monday April 13th.
The band’s previous four singles have enjoyed extensive airplay on BBC 6 Music and ‘Don’t Mind’ was selected for a coveted slot on Steve Lamacq’s Round Table which saw the single awarded a very respectable 7/10 from each guest on the panel.
Playlisted twice on Xfm, featured three times as the station’s Shock of the New and with their single ‘Forever In Your Debt’ selected as one of the top 5 singles of the week in December 2014, it seems that journalist and musician John Robb was absolutely right to predict that 2015 will see The Slow Readers Club breaking through to become one of the most important bands to emerge from Manchester’s music scene in recent years.
The Slow Readers Club regularly receive rave reviews for their live shows and 2014’s highlights include a sold out show at Manchester’s Night and Day and appearances at Tramlines Festival, Party in the Pines and Blackthorn Festival together with support slots for Catfish & The Bottlemen, The Struts, Reverend and the Makers and The Sunshine Underground. The band will be touring ‘Cavalcade’ throughout April 2015.
“The Slow Readers Club are without doubt on the cusp of something spectacular and if you haven’t immersed yourself in their indie electro sounds by now, then it’s high time you paid attention.”
“We are extremely excited about these guys here at XFM.”
“The Slow Readers Club B-sides are far better than most bands’ A-sides.”
“Darkly melancholic atmospheric palls of sound that curl their way around the room, like mesmeric threads caught in the evening sunlight.”
“Exceptional… The Slow Readers Club is one of the UK’s brightest propositions.”
“Able to deliver a catchy and emotive indie electro rock sound, The Slow Readers Club are worth checking out.”
