The Slow Readers Club has released their fifth studio album, 91 Days In Isolation on their own record label, SRC Records. It was written during the UK lockdown, and was recorded by the band all working remotely from home. It follows their top ten album, The Joy Of The Return.

Speaking of the creative process, Starkie said; “This collection of songs was written remotely during the UK Covid 19 lockdown. With each band member sharing ideas over the internet, the songs were pieced together at home. When the lockdown lifted we took the songs to Edwin Street Recording Studios in Bury and recorded this album with our producer Phil Bulleyment. We are proud to present 91 Days in Isolation”.

Throughout the entirety of the lockdown, The Slow Readers Club consistently found creative ways of staying connected to their fans. These included exclusive lockdown videos including videos of fan-selected cover songs, ‘watch together’ sessions of previous shows, fan listening parties of their previous albums and an unforgettable acoustic session surrounded by 21,000 vacant seats in a hauntingly desolate Manchester Arena for the venue’s 25th anniversary celebrations.

The band is also pleased to share re-scheduled dates of their UK tour in September and October.
