Over the course of two self-released studio albums, The Slow Readers Club built their initial loyal fanbase. First locally, and then – partly thanks to being offered a national tour support with fellow Mancunians / Slow Readers-fans James, but largely down to the band’s tireless touring schedule and close connection with their fans on social media – spreading across the UK and beyond.
The rewards of this work at grassroots level were reaped upon the release of their third studio album ‘Build A Tower’ – released in partnership with China/Liverpool-based label Modern Sky – which debuted in the UK Top 10 Album Chart. Following the release of ‘Build A Tower’, The Slow Readers Club have only gone from strength to strength; sold out UK tours, sold out shows in Germany, festival appearance and stage headlines across the UK and Europe. The list goes on.
To end 2019 and keep fans occupied while work continues on their fourth long-player, The Slow Readers Club have released a deluxe 2 x LP + DVD and 2 x CD + DVD of their triumphant and sold out Christmas 2018 show at the 3500 capacity Manchester Apollo (the set is also available digitally via DSPs / digital retailers), and a short run of UK / Irish tour dates in November / December (including two night’s at Manchester’s 1400 capacity Ritz, which sold out within a couple of hours of going on sale).
