Ahead of the imminent release of new single ‘You Could Keep Me Talking’ (out 11th July), The Leisure Society have announced details of a very special show at the London Barbican on Thursday 8th December 2011.
Tickets for the show will be priced at £15 or £20 and will be available HERE.
The show will also feature backing from the 30-piece Heritage Orchestra. Formed in 2004 by producer Christopher Wheeler and conductor composer Jules Buckley and based in the De La Warr pavilion in Bexhill, they are one of the best-known young orchestras in the U.K., celebrated for their collaborations with contemporary mainstream and experimental artists. They have recently worked with John Cale and also performed Vangelis’s ‘Blade Runner’ soundtrack at the Massive Attack-curated Meltdown.
The Leisure Society released their critically acclaimed second album, ‘Into The Murky Water’, in May of this year and over the past couple of months have played a sold-out show at London’s Union Chapel, performed an intimate and unusual acoustic gig at the SEA LIFE London Aquarium and been personally chosen by Ray Davies to appear at his recent Meltdown festival at the Southbank Centre.
Most recently, ‘We Were Wasted’, a track from their debut album, appears on ‘Tyrannosaur’, the forthcoming film written and directed byPaddy Considine and starring Peter Mullan.
