The Slow Readers Club announce new album ‘The Joy Of The Return’, due out on 20 March 2020.
The band have also shared brand new single ‘All I Hear’ and confirmed that they’ll be hitting the road in support of the new album this spring – check out full details below.
The album was recorded at Liverpool’s Parr Street Studios and produced by long-standing collaborator Phil Bulleyment. Singer Aaron Starkie commented on the track saying, “‘All I Hear’ is about a lack of agency and an inability to affect change. That there’s something happening, and you have no choice but to go along with it.”

Discussing the album, Aaron continued, “I think it’s definitely our most interesting and accomplished record musically. Lyrically the album covers love, alienation, the rise of right wing populism and comments on algorithm driven propaganda. And as always, I try to deliver those lyrics with uplifting melody.”
