Imperial Leisure gigs!

With plaudits from Imperial Leisure’s debut, The Art of Saying Nothing, still ringing in their ears and having rounded out 2009 supporting the likes of The King Blues. The are ready to set out on the road again with their new streamlined setup showcasing new tracks from their upcoming as yet untitled album that is set for release in summer 2010!

With IL original members Denis Smith on vocals, AJ White on guitar, Dan Dobson on bass, Scott Vining on drums, Stu Maxwell on keyboards and new boy Jerome Harper guesting on brass, the sound is leaner and meaner, whilst retaining the band’s trademark energy and intensely catchy songs.

The live set retains its truly distinctive British flavour that includes fan favourites and stand out tracks such as Radio One picks ‘In A Letter’, ‘Jenny’ and the skantastic ‘Man On The Street’. Other highlights include ‘The Beast’ and ‘The Landlord’s Daughter’ all delivered with the new line-up so expect a few extra twists as well as a cheeky peppering of new album tracks.

Imperial Leisure spent the last two years laying markers across the UK with memorable live performances that have created a fervent live fan base. Selling out shows and playing at festivals across the UK including Glastonbury, Bestival, Reading, Lovebox, and Fruitstock to name but a few. Imperial Leisure are happy headlining, supporting or springing spontaneous gigs on unsuspecting but hugely appreciative crowds in shopping centres, parks, and on beaches around the UK; oh yeah and the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

Imperial Leisure has supported the likes of The King Blues, Less Than Jake, Roots Manuva, Gym Class Heroes, the legendary Sugar Hill Gang, Sway, YoungBlood Brass Band and Skinnyman.

With supporters across UK press, Radio 1, XFM, 6 Music and Kerrang Radio eagerly awaiting the new material, IL fans will be the first to hear new tracks on their forthcoming warm up tour before a triumphant launch into the UK’s consciousness this summer.
