The Slow Readers Club



Well feted after the release of their debut album The Slow Readers Club now bring us their second offering Cavalcade with it's 12 tracks of indie pop infused electro goodness. 

Strong  song writing and vocals overlaid on consumate musicality will see this album push them even further to the fore.

The Slow Readers Club seem to be on the cusp of being the next big musical Manchester thing as this album flows from potential single to potential single with Ralph already having played Start Again many a time on his Radio KC Indie Show.






But it's not just Ralph that's featured The Slow Readers Club regularly as the band's previous four singles have enjoyed extensive airplay on BBC 6 Music and Don't Mind was selected for a coveted slot on Steve Lamacq's Round Table which saw the single awarded a very respectable 7/10 from each guest on the panel.





Playlisted twice on Xfm, featured three times as the station's Shock of the New and with their single Forever In Your Debt selected as one of the top 5 singles of the week in December 2014, it seems that journalist and musician John Robb was absolutely right to predict that 2015 will see The Slow Readers Club breaking through to become one of the most important bands to emerge from Manchester's music scene in recent years.





The Slow Readers Club regularly receive rave reviews for their live shows and 2014's highlights include a sold out show at Manchester’s Night and Day and appearances at Tramlines Festival, Party in the Pines and Blackthorn Festival together with support slots for Catfish & The Bottlemen, The Struts, Reverend and the Makers and The Sunshine Underground.  

The band will be  touring Cavalcade throughout April 2015 and I'd advise you to catch a show near you!
