Levellers

Don't Miss Out
Time: Friday 7.30pm
Cost: £25 Advance

Brighton folk/punk band Levellers celebrated the 25th anniversary of the release of their second full-length, and now classic, album Levelling the Land in 2016 with a huge sold out tour of the UK. They have announced plans for a new album in 2017 and dates in the UK and Europe.

Their platinum-selling 1991 album Levelling The Land features the hit singles One Way, 15 Years and Far From Home plus The Game, Liberty Song, Sell Out, Another Man’s Cause, Riverflow, Boatman and the incendiary Battle Of The Beanfield. During the summer of 1991 Levelling The Land redefined the UK’s musical landscape. Levellers provided the soundtrack for a society fed up with the twin evils of Thatcherite politics, and the post-80’s, pre-grunge musical wasteland.

Emerging victorious through the ups and downs of label deals, the spats with the music press and the wear and tear of touring, the Levellers are still going strong after nearly 30 years in the game. They run their own label, have their own studio and their own festival. Love them or hate them: you can’t help but admire them.

Levellers released their ‘Greatest Hits’ in 2014 via their own On The Fiddle Recordings label and are re-issuing Levelling the Land in 2016 as a 2CD/DVD package, plus on vinyl and a Box Set. A film about the band ‘A Curious Life’, told through the unique perspective of Jeremy Cunningham, the band’s bass player and artist, was also recently released on DVD.
