HAVING had to cancel their proposed October tour last year after being invited to support Laura Marling on her Cathedral Tour, The Leisure Society will play The Grand, Clitheroe, on Saturday, February 18th.
Earning rave reviews for their first two albums and memorable live performances, this is a band not to be missed. In addition to the Laura Marling dates, The Leisure Society also played a sold-out show at London’s Union Chapel as part of a full UK tour in May and were chosen by Ray Davies to perform and record with him as part of the Meltdown festival at the Southbank Centre.
They also played a special headline show at the London Barbican in December, with backing from the 30-piece Heritage Orchestra, generating staggering reviews in the national press.
If all this wasn’t enough, their second album, “Into The Murky Water”, was released by Full Time Hobby last May and re-released in October, featuring a seven-track bonus CD of covers, instrumentals, oddities and rarities. And “Tyrannosaur”, a recent film written and directed by Paddy Considine and starring Peter Mullan, also featured “We Were Wasted”, a track from the band’s debut album.
