Scholars Announce UK 2013 Autumn Headline Tour
Scholars released their debut album 'Always Lead, Never Follow' in April to great critical acclaim; last month they also released a limited edition companion EP 'Never Follow, Always Lead' featuring unreleased tracks, cover songs and alternative versions.
Chris Aylett (bass) explains: "While writing our own songs and creating things from nothing is what drives our band, we've always got a kick out of playing covers. They'd often come together by accident during breaks at rehearsal, sometimes starting off as a joke and ending up sounding good.
"We also love taking our own songs to pieces and totally reinterpreting them. It's a pretty healthy process, it helps you to figure out what's good and what's not so good about what you do."
After a series of festival dates this summer, Scholars will take to the road in September/October for their biggest headline shows to date.
