GOODNIGHT LENIN+ THE TRAVELLING BAND + BOAT TO ROW (DJ SET)

Goodnight Lenin have announced the details of their album launch show and their biggest headline performance to date which is to take place at The Institute, Birmingham on November 29. The live date accompanies the release of the band’s debut album, In The Fullness Of Time, which is released on November 24.

This year has seen the band put the finishing touches to the album which they have been working on since their formation in 2011. The record is mixed by Jonathan Wilson and is preceded by its lead single, ‘You Were Always Waiting’, in late October.

The year has also seen the band complete their ambitious Record Store Day project for which they recorded, mixed and mastered two Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young covers in 24 hours between the local Highbury and Artisan recording studios. After a TV appearance on BBC Midlands Today alongside the likes of Editors and local record store owners talking about the importance of the physical release, the 24 resulting copies sold out of their limited physical run.

This live performance at The Institute will be the band’s biggest headline performance to date and will be the culmination of four years hard work. The band will be supported by Manchester folk-rock superhumans The Travelling Band who count Michael Eavis and Marc Riley amongst their fans and whose whimsical folk pop melodies are perfect for admirers of Creedence Clearwater Revival, Frightened Rabbit and Elbow.
