Build A Tower

    Manchester four piece The Slow Readers Club have announced their new album, Build A Tower, which will be released on May 4th via Modern Sky.

    Specialising in a dark and brooding indie electro that has drawn comparisons with Interpol, The Killers and The National, The Slow Readers Club have already received acclaim from the likes of Steve Lamacq, Peter Hook and Eddy Temple Morris, as well as having supported James on their arena tour, and performed at festivals including Isle Of Wight, Festival No.6 and Kendall Calling.

    Build A Tower was recorded close to home at Edwin Street Recording Studios in Bury and produced by Phil Bulleyment (Gaz Coombes, Dutch Uncles). It will be the band’s third album, and their first with Modern Sky, following the release of their eponymous debut (2011) and Cavalcade (2015), both of which were released independently.

    The band said of the release: “We’re really proud of the record as we’ve learned a lot since our last, self-released, album. ‘Build A Tower’ feels like a big step up. Even though fans have heard a couple of the tracks played on the last tour, there’s a lot we’ve been holding back until they had the album in their hands, so we’re also looking forward to getting out and playing live. We're excited to see what people make of our new music.”

    The Slow Readers Club are Aaron Starkie (vocals), Kurtis Starkie (guitar and vocals), James Ryan (bass) and David Whitworth (drums).
