Fasten your seatbelts. Lemon Jelly producer FRED DEAKIN is back and will be taking audiences into the new decade on a very different kind of trip.
Marking his return to the live stage with a series of UK dates in 2020, Fred Deakin proudly presents… The Lasters.
‘The Lasters’ is an ambitious new solo project inspired by classic concept albums like The Who’s ‘Quadrophenia’ and Jeff Wayne’s ‘The War of the Worlds’. A wholly original and truly out-of-this-world Sci-Fi concept record to rival the best, ‘The Lasters’ tells the tale of Earth’s final family.
And in the new year, Fred Deakin will be bringing this story to life with a visionary new live production set to tour around the UK for the very first time.
Following a hugely successful Kickstarter that funded the album’s one-of-a-kind vinyl run and subsequent digital release, supporters of the campaign were also exclusively granted access to witness the very first ‘The Lasters’ live shows at two secret gigs in September 2019. Featuring t-shirt tickets and psychedelic visuals aplenty, Fred has drawn on his years of expertise as a designer and interactive artist to create an immersive and thrilling live experience that defies description.
In a musical first for the former Lemon Jelly producer, ‘The Lasters’ has also seen him collaborate with ex-Ash member Charlotte Hatherley as well as newcomers Abi Sinclair and Steffan Huw Davies in addition to adding his own vocals to the album. Pulling out all the stops, the upcoming live shows will feature all four vocalists singing in character amongst projection-mapped animations.
A sensory-popping extravaganza that promises to immerse you joyfully into Fred’s futuristic world, don’t miss the very first ‘Fred Deakin Presents… The Lasters’ shows in all their mind-bending glory on UK stages throughout February 2020:
