With work nearing completion on their third album, Slow Club take to the road for a series of gigs culminating in a hometown show in Sheffield.
The November leg of the tour recalls the early days of their musical partnership with Charles Watson and Rebecca Taylor playing as a duo, whilst in December they’ll be joined by their touring band for six shows as a five piece.
Commenting on their shows as a two piece Charles said – “Earlier in the year we played a couple of shows like we used to, with a couple of guitars and keyboard. I was pretty terrified at the thought of not having a full band with us but it turned out to be amazing. I’m really excited to play these new songs in beautiful venues we have never been to.”
The tour promises songs old and new highlights from their albums “Yeah so” and “Paradise” and some new tracks including “The Queens Nose”, “Suffering Me”, “Suffering You” and “Tears of Joy” previewed on a selection of dates earlier this year.
The penultimate date is their traditional Christmas show on December 10th and this year at Shepherds Bush Empire, having outgrown both the Union Chapel and Koko. An annual institution since 2008 these shows are a marker of how the band have grown from a charming teenage two-piece into a fully grown five-piece.
