Folk-rock band Levellers will release their tenth studio album, Static On The Airwaves, on 25 June 2012.
They have also just announced an 11 date UK headline tour in November including a night at London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Saturday 24 November. Levellers will be joined by special guests Citizen Fish and have an acoustic tour planned for September.
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 was released on Saturday 21 April as A Limited Edition Red Vinyl 7” version as part of Record Store Day, the digital download is also now available.
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 festivals are powerful proof of the power of the underground and the power of great live music. Renowned for their energetic live shows, longevity has not diminished the Levellers’ ability to put in a performance and get everyone in a room, or field, dancing.
