Levellers are still going strong after 35 years in the game. They have long been, and still are, one of the best live bands around and in 2020 they released new studio album ‘Peace’ which entered the UK Official Album Charts at #8 – the band’s highest charting entry since 1997’s Mouth to Mouth reached #5 and improving on previous release We the Collective’s #12 position in 2018.
The band celebrated the 30th anniversary of their seminal platinum-selling, album Levelling The Land in 2021. During the summer of 1991 the album redefined the UK’s musical landscape. Levelling the Land features the hit singles One Way, 15 Years and Far From Home plus The Game, Liberty Song, Sell Out, Another Man’s Cause, Riverflow, Boatman and the incendiary Battle Of The Beanfield.
They decided to do something a bit different with their back catalogue in 2018 and enlisted legendary producer John Leckie (Radiohead, Stone Roses) to help develop new acoustic arrangements with a string string section for eight of their previous singles which they recorded straight to tape at the world-famous Abbey Road Studios – the result was Top 20 album ‘We The Collective’. Following on from that success, they released a second volume of acoustic reworkings ‘Together All The Way’ in March 2023 accompanied by an acoustic tour of theatres before then turning back to all electric shows for the rest of the year at festivals and venues.
