The album includes singles Lunatic, You Opened Up My Heart, Supernatural and live favourite On the TV, all of which aired on BBC 6 Music, Radio X and XS Manchester, championed by Chris Hawkins, Steve Lamacq, John Kennedy and Clint Boon amongst others. The Slow Readers Club also drew huge crowds at festival appearances across the summer in the UK and wider afield, including slots at Kendal Calling (Main Stage), Head for the Hills (Headline), Liverpool Sound City, Neighbourhood (surprise guests), Beautiful Days Devon, Stag and Dagger Glasgow, Reeperbahn Festival Hamburg, Kaltern Pop (Germany), plus Chinese festivals in the shape of Strawberry Festival (Hangzhou) and, SOTX (Beijing).

“Their sound is timeless and classic, so big and anthemic. Most of their songs are instant anthems, you can see them playing stadiums in the future”  – John Kennedy, Radio X

“Alongside the likes of Cabbage and Blossoms, The Slow Readers Club are currently one of the most exciting sounds coming out of our fair city” – Manchester Evening News

“The Slow Readers Club are quite simply too glorious to be kept a secret; see them, be seduced and then pass the pleasure on” – Louderthanwar
