Manchester four-piece The Slow Readers Club have announced an extensive UK tour for 2019. The tour will see the band play 32 intimate shows across the country throughout March and April with the band arriving for a sold out show at the Wedgewood Rooms on Saturday 30th March.
Regarding the tour, frontman 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 Slow Readers Club are touring in support of their album ‘Build A Tower’, which was released in May 2018 and went straight into the Official UK album chart Top 20 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.
Their single, ‘On The TV’, taken from the album proved a radio hit, receiving great support from BBC 6Music and Radio X.
In September 2018, The Slow Readers Club also released ‘For All Here To Observe’, a collection of acoustic reworks including tracks spanning their entire career.
