The Levellers are set to embark on another “Acoustic Tour” in 2023 and release an album of acoustic reworkings of their “best compositions”.
The folk rock band are set to follow up their 2018 companion LP to their 2018 “acoustic tour,” “We The Collective,” with another stripped-down collection and a string of dates next year.
This will be the first time that new recruit guitarist and vocalist Dan Donnelly will appear on a Levellers record.
The Mark Chadwick-led septet said in a statement: “We’re really excited to be recording a new acoustic album, going through some of our old material, rearranging it for today and doing some new stuff too. Also extremely happy to introduce new member Dan Donnelly to the recording world and to work with the members of the “collective” again – and some new guys. So we can’t wait to visit it! Take a tour of the most beautiful old theaters in the country and other unique and different places. Hope to see you all there!”
Further details, such as the release date of the new acoustic collection, will be announced in due course.
The tour will start on February 27, 2023 at Cheltenham Town Hall and end at Buxton Opera House on March 28.
Tickets for the tour go on sale Friday July 8 at 10am, available at myticket.co.uk, except for Truro, which goes on sale August 29.
