PRE-ORDER / PRE-SAVE THE ALBUM HERE

Manchester’s The Slow Readers Club have released the second track from their fifth studio album, 91 Days in Isolation. 

 

Listen Here:

Speaking about the new track, Aaron Starkie (Lead Singer) says: 

“Lyrically it’s a song about the outpouring of hatred and vitriol on social media and me asking myself if I should engage with it. It is an acknowledgement that there is something in the human condition that craves an outlet to unleash our rage and social media provides that. ‘Two Minutes Hate’ (a reference to the daily ritual in George Orwell’s 1984 where party members gather to scream at images of enemies of the state).”

91 Days in Isolation is out on Friday 23rd October, self-released via their very own label, SRC Records.

 

 

The album is available to pre-order exclusively on the band’s webstore, on very limited colour vinyl and CD, HERE 

 

Written during the UK lockdown, the album was recorded by the band all working remotely from home. It follows the Top 10 album, The Joy Of The Return, released in March this year.

Speaking of the creative process, Starkie said:

“This collection of songs was written remotely during the UK Covid 19 lockdown. With each band member sharing ideas over the internet, the songs were pieced together at home. When the lockdown lifted we took the songs to Edwin Street Recording Studios in Bury and recorded this album with our producer Phil Bulleyment. We are proud to present 91 Days in Isolation”. 

Throughout the entirety of the lockdown, The Slow Readers Club consistently found creative ways of staying connected to their fans. These included exclusive lockdown videos including videos of fan-selected cover songs, ‘watch together’ sessions of previous shows, fan listening parties of their previous albums and an unforgettable acoustic session surrounded by 21,000 vacant seats in a hauntingly desolate Manchester Arena for the venue’s 25th anniversary celebrations.

 

The band are also pleased to share rescheduled UK and European tour dates for March and April 2021. Original tickets remain valid for the new dates. New tickets are on-sale now HERE:
