We are sorry to announce that League Of Lights are unable to take part in the next virtual edition of Fusion Festival on 24 April. This is because Richard is currently looking after his Father while he recovers from an illness and will not be back home in time to film the duo’s performance for the festival.
We hope you’ll all watch the festival anyway and we look forward to performing again soon.
Today is the day that we’ve been waiting for. We are really happy to share our album Dreamers Don’t Come Down with you. We hope you have enjoyed the singles that we’ve released so far.
Dreamers Don’t Come Down is out on CD and all digital platforms today. There is still a little wait for the vinyl, due to Covid and various staffing issues the vinyl has been delayed, but if you have pre-ordered from Burning Shed in black vinyl or limited edition purple it will be with you on 23 April.
We hope you love the album, we put everything into it. It was a total joy to make and we hope that it shows.
Only one week to go until our new album comes out, so there’s just time to release another single. This is The Collector (Radio Version) and it’s about the things we collect and carry with us on our journey through life.
We’re happy to let you know that we’ll be back at Fusion Festival on 24th April to perform a couple of tracks from our forthcoming album Dreamers Don’t Come Down.
The virtual event, entitled Fusion – Light At The End Of The Tunnel Edition, will take place on 24th April 2021 @ 7.00pm BST on YouTube, raising money and awareness for the charities Mind and Samaritans.
We’re excited to let you know that our brand new single Modern Living will be released on 29 January.
It’s taken from our forthcoming album Dreamers Don’t Come Down. It’s undoubtedly the poppiest song on the album, it’s still got our League sound but with a slightly different direction in terms of writing and production. An Animé-styled video to accompany it will also be released on 29 January. We can’t wait to share it with you!
Dreamers Don’t Come Down will be released on 12 March (vinyl editions on 23 April) and is available for pre-order from Burning Shed.
We’re pleased to announce that our forthcoming album Dreamers Don’t Come Down will now also be released on vinyl by the Plane Groovy label.
The limited edition 180g purple vinyl pressing will include a signed insert, and the album will also be available as 180g black vinyl, CD and digital formats.
“I’ve had a secret longing for this album to come out on vinyl”, admits Richard West. “Released in 2021, containing a song called Twenty Twenty One, and rather unusually the running time for each side of the album is 20:21, so it just had to be done!”
Dreamers Don’t Come Down is available to pre-order now from Burning Shed.
“In April 2019, we were driving to Cornwall in the south west of England for a short break away. As usual, Rich’s head was full of a song that he was writing. It was called Twenty Twenty One, which then seemed such a long way off. We didn’t think too much more about it other than when he told me the lyrics, I thought they could do with cheering up a bit. The lyrics sounded a bit dark – little did I know what was to come during 2020. We recorded the song in April 2020 and I still wanted to give the song a bit more of a happy feel. But lockdown had started and the lyrics seemed like they had a prophetic feel. Sometimes songs are crafted, worked at, reworked and tweaked. Some seem given, like a gift. Twenty Twenty One fell into the second category and so it stayed exactly as written in 2019.” – Farrah x
