In 1998, Empress, a band from Leeds, released their eponymous debut LP. In 2016, the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union. Living Body, a new band from Leeds, doesn’t think we should give up so easily. Dedicated to optimism and hope for the future, Living Body’s first single is a radically altered cover of Empress’s Don’t Give Up On Me.
Soon, we will embark on our first UK tour in spite of this tumultuous state of affairs:
July 23: Sheffield – Tramlines Festival (ticket link / FB event)
July 24: London – Old Blue Last (FREE entry / FB event)
July 25: Brighton – Green Door Store (FREE entry / FB event)
July 26: Derby – the Hairy Dog (ticket link) / FB event)
July 27: York – City Screen Basement (ticket link / FB event)
July 28: Glasgow – Broadcast (ticket link / FB event)
July 29: Newcastle – Cluny 2 (ticket link) / FB event)
July 30: Sunderland – Pop Recs Ltd. (FB event)
July 31: Leeds – Brudenell Social Club (FREE entry / FB event)
August 1: Manchester – Fallow Cafe (ticket link / FB event)
In celebration of a forthcoming tour and the possibility that all hope may not be lost, we are now offering the single as a free download from our Bandcamp page. We hope this may bring joy into the lives of others, and offer a break from the relentless mouths of politicians.
Stay tuned for news on a full-length LP, which will be coming later in the year on Landland and Kingfisher Bluez in the USA & Canada, and Barely Regal Records in the United Kingdom & Europe. After all, if we are to continue to exist, giving up must not be an option.
