The Leisure Society announce new album Arrivals and Departures and new tour dates


The Leisure Society

The Leisure Society will play Liverpool as part of their UK tour promoting their new album, Getintothis’ Lewis Ridley reports.

The Leisure Society are heading back out on tour this September following the release of their new album, Arrivals and Departures.

The band was formed in 2006 by Nick Hemming, formerly of early 1990s indie band She Talks to Angels, and fellow Burton exile Christian Hardy in London.

Their fourth album release, Arrivals and Departures was recorded in rented and borrowed houses in the Peak District, the Cotswolds and a medieval mansion in Richelieu, France.

It arrived in April, and following successful shows in May, The Leisure Society return to the live stage on a tour.

It sees them play in Dublin, Newcastle and Birmingham before a final date at Liverpool’s Leaf on Saturday, 28 September.
