NEW SINGLE – ‘CREEPER’ – 16TH FEBRUARY 2018
10TH ANNIVERSARY ANNOUNCEMENT
Listen – ‘Creeper’
London ska-punks, Imperial Leisure are set to release a new single through Indiesonics / Warners / Altska on the 16th of February 2018.
‘Creeper’, the follow up to the recent ‘Animal’ release, is the latest track to be lifted from the band’s third and current long player ‘Lifestyle Brand’ and will be available to stream and download on all platforms. A long time live favourite, the single will be accompanied by a video shot at last years Boomtown Fair festival that sees the band equally shock and delight revellers as they play and roam the festival scantily clad in their lycra and glitter attire.
The release of ‘Creeper’ is set to kick off a very busy period for Imperial Leisure as this year marks the tenth anniversary of the release of their debut album ‘The Art Of Saying Nothing’. The band will celebrate this milestone with the release of a special new deluxe edition featuring the original album together with bonus tracks and new mixes. The release will coincide with extensive tours of the UK and Europe over the next twelve months.
Originally formed in the early 2000’s, the current line up of Denis Smith (vocals), Scott Vining (drums), Ben Bridges (guitar), Jack Emmings (bass), Richard Cox (keys) and Rob O’Neale (trumpet) – together with trombonists Steph Faulkner (Mad Apple Circus) and Russel Spencer (Ghouls / The King Blues) and on trumpet Ken Brown (Shanty), Dave Medland (Dub Pistols) and Elliot Phelps (Cut Capers / The King Blues / Lux Lisbon) have built a reputation as one of the most exciting and unpredictable live bands around. Drawing influence from bands such as The Specials, Roots Manuva, Less Than Jake, Youngblood Brass Band, Rage Against the Machine and The Streets they’ve now released three acclaimed albums and toured the UK and Europe extensively, most recently with Hot 8 Brass Band on their recent tour.
Imperial Leisure will announce further details of the anniversary album and tour dates very soon. The party starts here and will be raging on throughout 2018 with tours, festival shows, parties, guerrilla gigs, tequilas and oceans of bubbly. Expect to be broken!
