When a band goes on an extensive UK tour and includes Swansea, it’s something that should be celebrated - especially when the band are as good and as exciting as Manchester’s The Slow Readers Club.

Sin City will be their 20th stop out of 32 on the band’s extensive UK tour and after sold out shows in London, Glasgow and Manchester the band have proven that they are definietly ones to watch. Described by the NME as “The next northern pop powerhouse… with hints of the xx, Depeche Mode, The Maccabees and Alt-J, this is one for fans of guitar led indie rock music.

The band will also be selling their own signature dry hopped lager - “Slow Brew” - to ensure you stay refreshed during their set!

This is a very exciting time for the band. Front man Aaron Starkie says: "This is the first opportunity we’ve had to do a full on UK tour, up until this point we’ve all had day jobs to work around, but 2019 is the year we go at it properly, no more messing about. We’ve had tons of people ask us to play all over the UK so here we go.”

The band are touring in support of their new album Build A Tower, which was released last year and went straight into the album charts at number 18, 10 in the physical album chart, 4 in the vinyl chart, 4 in the indie album chart and Number 1 in the cassette chart.

The latest single, ‘On The TV’, taken from the album has proved a hit at radio, receiving great support from BBC 6Music and Radio X.  

Following the March headline tour, the band have also been announced to play the main stage at the Neighbourhood Weekender in Victoria Park, Warrington on May 26th alongside Richard Ashcroft, The Vaccines and The Charlatans. 

Supporting the band is Devon’s Alice Jemima, who will be bringing more indie vibes to the night. Check out her track “Take Me Back” below:
