Levellers to tour North America for first time in over a decade

I'm disappointed there are no California dates on the itinerary. Hopefully they'll add shows...

UK folk punk band the Levellers are gearing up for a handful of U.S. and Canadian dates to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the release of their second full-length, Levelling The Land. In addition to performing this now-classic album in full, the band is also planning to fill their set with other hits from throughout their nearly 30-year career.

Their platinum-selling 1991 album Levelling The Land features the hit singles “One Way,” “15 Years” and “Far From Home” plus “The Game,” “Liberty Song,” “Another Man’s Cause,” “Riverflow,” “Boatman” and the incendiary “Battle Of The Beanfield.

During the summer of 1991, Levelling The Land redefined the UK’s musical landscape; the album was massively successful, entering the charts at number 14, and eventually going platinum. Levellers provided the soundtrack for a society fed up with the twin evils of Thatcherite politics, and the post-80’s, pre-grunge musical wasteland. Emerging victorious through the ups and downs of label deals, the spats with the music press and the wear and tear of touring, the Levellers are still going strong after almost three decades in the game.
