The Strange Death Of Liberal England Information

Early 2006 and five like minded souls in Portsmouth gather together to form what will henceforth be known as The Strange Death Of Liberal England. With a cumulative desire to make music that explores light and shade, beauty and ugliness, creation and destruction. Early shows were notable as members switch instruments between songs and use slogan placards to highlight song titles and transmit messages to those watching. The debut single "A Day Another Day" was released on a fabulous white vinyl 7". NME, decided they sounded "like Arcade Fire with tattoos” (which is a good thing!")

In 2007 the band decamped to Chapel Studios in Lincolnshire with producer Rob Kirwan to record their debut album. Those principles which began the band shine through the recordings. The folk and hate of ‘Good Old Fashioned War' sits next to the crescendos and fear of ‘I Saw Evil'. The band's maritime location seems to peek through the nightmare sea shanty of ‘God Damn Broke and Broken Hearted'. The album "Forward March" was released in the summer on limited edition digipack with Uncut Magazine describing the band as "Gods Own Orchestra"

The Strange Death Of Liberal England have been on tour with Manic Street Preachers and Of Montreal among others and also appeared at Latitude, Summer Sundae, Offset and Primavera Festivals. The band are currently recording a new album for release in 2010.
