After a sensational set of shows throughout the UK in May, two-time Ivor Novello nominees, The Leisure Society, will embark on another run of gigs this September, promoting their new album “Arrivals and Departures”.
With four critically acclaimed albums on their back, the band have had a rocky few years but that has shaped their music, and eventually become the foundation of their upcoming double-album, Arrivals & Departures.
The album, which was released in April this year, was recorded in rented and borrowed houses in the Peak District, the Cotswolds and a medieval mansion in Richelieu, France. The band also snuck into Union Chapel in Islington late at night to capture strings and choral sections for the record, which features the likes of Brian Eno and poet Liz Berry.
Arrivals & Departures is their most ambitious and diverse record to date, charting the journey from heartbreak, to anger, to hope, in 57 lavish minutes.
The Leisure Society will be playing the Bullingdon, Oxford on 20 September. Buy tickets here http://sonicpr.co.uk/artists/the-leisure-society/
