Alt-rock quartet Led By Lanterns have announced rescheduled dates for their UK headline tour, with support from TRIBELESS. Originally confirmed for January/February, the shows will now take place in April due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The tour will follow the release of the band’s debut album Paralysis, due out on 28th January 2022.
15.04.2022 – Bristol, Rough Trade
16.04.2022 – Birmingham, The Flapper
17.04.2022 – London, The Black Heart
19.04.2022 – Newcastle, Head Of Steam
20.04.2022 – Glasgow, Garage Attic
21.04.2022 – Manchester, Satan’s Hollow
22.04.2022 – Leeds, The Key Club
Led By Lanterns’ new 10-track release is full to the brim with bouncy hooks, heavy riffs and soaring vocals, reminiscent of You Me At Six, Don Broco and Normandie, all whilst retaining the band’s own shine. Paralysis also welcomes some familiar faces, featuring collaborations with Softcult’s Mercedes Arn-Horn (‘Good Enough’), Trash Boat’s Tobi Duncan (‘Alive’) and WAVED (‘Six Feet Down’).
Lyrically, Paralysis explores mental health and its many forms. The album is inspired by the situations that leave you feeling powerless, being trapped in your own body and mind, unable to reach out to those around you. Overthinking (‘Satellite’), managing self-expectations (‘Six Feet Down’) and accepting that relationships may grow apart (‘Disconnected’) are just some of the many relatable topics on Paralysis, that will connect with music fans across the globe.
