The Levellers – Static On The Airwaves Tour 2012

By Wildchildmedia @wildchildmedia


“The Levellers album to silence the critics and repay the faithful is here – tune in.” Classic Rock 8/10
“This affirmative and emboldened revival by the alt rock rebels is a career best.” Daily Mirror 4/5
“Message received, loud and clear” Record Collector 4/5
“Mature, polished song-writing and light-touch production” BBC Music Online


Folk-rock band Levellers who released their tenth studio album, Static On The Airwaves this summer will shortly embark on an extensive UK tour throughout November 2012. Levellers will be joined by special guests Citizen Fish on all dates

Innumerable sell-out tours and ten years of a sell-out festival are powerful proof of the power of the underground, and the enduring popularity of great live music. Renowned for their energetic live show, longevity has not diminished the Levellers’ ability to put in a performance and get everyone in a room, or field, dancing.

Widely heralded as their most accomplished album to date, Static On The Airwaves is the sound of a band whose incisive lyrics, innate musicality and passion have continued to improve rather than diminish in nearly a quarter of a century of writing, recording and performing.

Produced by Sean Lakeman, who is renowned for producing his brother’s Mercury-nominated and gold-selling albums as well as Letters From The Underground (Levellers’ previous album), Static On The Airwaves was recorded ‘as live’ at Sono Studios in Prague and mixed in New York by the legendary Victor Van Vugt (PJ Harvey, Beth Orton, Nick Cave).

Levellers perform tracks from Static On The Airwaves alongside their multitude of hits from the last 2 decades on a major UK tour this November. Full info below, and at
