CELEBRATING 25 YEARS OF ‘LEVELLING THE LAND’

 

 

 

Levellers announce November & December UK Tour 2016 plus special guests Ferocious Dog

 

 

 

Brighton folk punk band Levellers will play their classic album in full plus other hits on a mammoth UK tour supported by Ferocious Dog to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the release of their second full-length, and now classic, album.

 

 

 

Their platinum-selling 1991 album Levelling The Land features the hit singles One Way, 15 Yearsand Far From Home plus The Game, Liberty Song, Sell Out, Another Man’s Cause, Riverflow, Boatman and the incendiary Battle Of The Beanfield.

 

 

 

During the summer of 1991 Levelling The Land redefined the UK’s musical landscape. Levellers provided the soundtrack for a society fed up with the twin evils of Thatcherite politics, and the post-80’s, pre-grunge musical wasteland.

 

 

 

Emerging victorious through the ups and downs of label deals, the spats with the music press and the wear and tear of touring, the Levellers are still going strong after nearly 30 years in the game. They run their own label, have their own studio and their own festival. Love them or hate them: you can’t help but admire them.
