Kiran Leonard Announces New Album
Kiran Leonard has this week announced details of his forthcoming album, Western Culture. Set for release on 19th October 2018, the lead single 'Paralysed Force' is available to stream immediately.
The album follows from last year's Dervaun Seraun, a concept album in five movements, inspired by five pieces of literature. Western Culture will be the first of Leonard's albums to be recorded in a professional studio and will be the first time his live band will be heard on record.
"It was nice not having to spend 2+ years recording an LP in drips in my front room," says Leonard. "It was mostly smashed out over nine days or so makes it a lot more focused than my long-ass records usually are. I think it's both more accessible and more peculiar than my other records. There's a nice Bon Jovi solo at the end of the seventh track."
Leonard has also announced a huge UK & Ireland tour in Autumn after his appearance at End of The Road Festival in late August. See below for full details.
