The Lathums: How Beautiful Life Can Be: Signed Deluxe Vinyl, Signed Deluxe Cassette & Deluxe CD

Rising indie stars The Lathums have announced their debut album “How Beautiful Life Can Be”, arriving 24th September on Island Records. They’ve broken the news with a re-recording of fan-favourite ‘The Great Escape’.

The news and the single celebrate how far the band have come, with a music video full of live footage and behind the scenes clips from over the years. The upbeat, infectiously optimistic sound of ‘The Great Escape’ shows exactly why they’ve become firm favourites in the UK music scene.

How Beautiful Life Can Be” will feature some re-recordings of previous singles, along with some brand new cuts. You can pre-order the album and meet the band tomorrow (31st July) at Wigan Market at their Lathum’s Emporium stall.

While the outside world increasingly closes in on The Lathums’ close-knit bubble of offbeat humour, free-flowing jangle-indie and lyrics of unrestrained optimism, Britain’s most-tipped new guitar band finally announce their debut album, How Beautiful Life Can Be. Recorded at Parr Street Studios in Liverpool in the company of producers James Skelly and Chris Taylor, the band’s fuse was only lit a few summers ago by Tim Burgess, but supercharged by fans that found them slogging their gear into North England’s pubs and small venues. The Lathums’ story may just turn out to be the perfect not-all-nice-guys-finish-last tale.
