Brighton folk/punk band Levellers have announced their first tour in Australia in 2016 plus festival appearances and a new album in the making.
Levellers released their ‘Greatest Hits’ in 2014 via their own On The Fiddle Recordings label. Spread over three formats; the 2CD/DVD set includes all the Levellers’ singles and videos – together on one album for the first time, spanning the bands’ 25 year career.
From the folk punk roots of Carry Me, through the anthemic One Way, Fifteen Years and the chart topping Hope Street, Just The One and Beautiful Day – more recent tracks such as Truth Is, Burn America Burn and The Cholera Well show the Levellers’ mix of scathing political comment and positive DIY attitude to life hasn’t dissipated with age.
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 released on DVD this year. The Deluxe DVD Edition of ‘A Curious Life’ include a bonus CD ‘Levellers: Live In Dublin’, recorded on the recent film tour at St. Patrick’s Cathedral. The DVD contains the movie plus deleted scenes and rare live footage from Brighton shows at the Gloucester & the Richmond, circa ’88-’89 and Glastonbury ’92.
