The SLOW READERS CLUB – ” Knowledge Freedom Power “

Posted: November 20, 2022 in MUSIC

Front man Aaron Starkie explained the thought process behind the lyrics to the single and the album’s title – “Growing up as a council estate kid in Manchester I was very conscious of having a limited horizon and I guess I had a chip on my shoulder and something to prove. It’s that background that inspired both our band name and the album’s title track ‘Knowledge Freedom Power’. It is an exercise in positive sloganeering, a mantra for education as a means of a way out from social and psychological confinement.” 

The single is the first to be taken from the album of the same name, which is due for release on February 24th on blue vinyl, CD and cassette as well as “flipped” versions of the artwork with a yellow vinyl variant, CD and cassette available exclusively from their website. The album release precedes a tour of the UK and Europe, which includes an already sold-out hometown show in Manchester, their first in the city since before the pandemic.

The album features ten tracks – all previously unreleased and unheard – Modernise, Afterlife, Sacred Song, Lay Your Troubles On Me, How Could You Know?, Knowledge Freedom Power, What Might Have Been, Seconds Out, Forget About Me and No You Never.

The title track from the Slow Readers Club‘s upcoming album of the same name – Out February 24th 2023!
