Even before you get to the music there’s plenty to pique one’s interest with The Leisure Society. Main-man Nick Hemming began his career in shoegaze band The Telescopes and shared a further outfit with Paddy Considine and Shane Meadows.

They’ve had two consecutive Ivor Novello nominations for Best Song Musically and Lyrically, and have enjoyed the endorsement of everyone from Guy Garvey to Brian Eno.

They’ve collaborated with Ray Davies and the Heritage Orchestra, not to mention soundtracking a few films, most notably Mr Considine’s brutal masterpiece Tyrannosaur.

Their long awaited fifth album, Arrivals & Departures, is set for release in Spring 2019 and the band will be touring it throughout May.

‘Gorgeously delicate’ The Guardian

‘A true gem’ Brian Eno

‘Warm, colourful, literate songs that reach into the heart and the head’ The Independent

‘As close to any of The Beatles’ greatest records as anything I’ve heard in the last five years or so’ Drowned In Sound

THIS EVENT WILL TAKE PLACE IN OUR MAIN SPACE – KOMEDIA DOWNSTAIRS
