We’re hugely disappointed to announce that Winter’s End festival will no longer be going ahead next month, we were very much looking forward to performing at the event. The organisers have decided to move the entire festival to 2021, with all tickets remaining valid for the next year’s event. Our thoughts go out to all of the organisers, crew, artists and fans who are affected by this. Stay safe and we’ll look forward to seeing you there in 2021.
We’re so excited to let you know that we have a new release coming soon called Extended Light, featuring extended versions of ‘On a Night Like This’, ‘Spectrometer’ and ‘Butterfly’. Out on 27 March 2020.

A nice review of ‘In the in Between’ by Get Ready to Rock…
Second album from League Of Lights, who are the husband and wife duo Farrah and Richard West – the latter best known for being a member of Threshold. Their self-titled debut album released back in 2011, featuring guest musicians from the likes of Within Temptation and Fates Warning. On this album they wrote and recorded all the music themselves – Farrah on vocals and Richard providing the music.
Opener ‘Shockwave’ sounds like a Threshold song, however it being the heaviest song on the album don’t go expecting an album of Threshold sounding tunes. Instead, League Of Lights explore many facets of the wonderful world of pop, be it synth pop (‘Spectrometer’ – the synths are a must hear on this one), piano led ballads (‘Scarlet Thread’) or electronic dance music (EDM) on ‘Due Diligence’.
Farrah’s vocals are easy on the ear, yet never overwhelmed by the predominantly led keys/synths music. Fans of synths/keyboards will find much to enjoy in the playing on this album.
The single ‘On A Night Like This’, with its upbeat tempo and lyric, is perfect for daytime radio. Featuring an instant chorus, the melodious vocals of Farrah and the keyboards wizardry of Richard, they have a crossover hit on their hands.
League Of Lights have certainly found their own sound on ‘In The In Between’, deftly mixing synth pop, EDM, rock and progressive elements to create an enjoyable and intriguing listen from start to finish. ****
Our brand new single “On a Night Like This” is out today! Check out our lyric video below, it’s all about those inspired moments where you feel like you can do anything. Big thanks to Berny at Rocktopia for perfectly capturing the mood of the song.
League of Lights will release a new radio version of “On a Night Like This” on 17 January 2020.
“It’s a song about those magical moments when you’re filled with inspiration and creativity and feel like you can do anything”, comments keyboard player Richard West.
The band will perform the song at Winter’s End Festival in Chepstow on 26 April during an hour long set which will also feature their previous singles “Kings and Queens” and “Forever”. Other bands appearing at the festival include Subsignal, Pendragon and Mostly Autumn.
A huge shout-out to Power Quest for an awesome night last Saturday, when we had the pleasure of joining them on stage in London to celebrate the 15th anniversary of their album ‘Neverworld’ and commemorate the life of bassist Paul Finnie who sadly passed away in August. A very special evening.
Check out a brand new interview with League of Lights vocalist Farrah West over at Merryn Music, where she discusses the new album, musical influences and spending time in prison!
