SCHOLARS release new track ‘More Medicine’ – lyric video
Debut album ‘Always Lead, Never Follow’ set for release on 8th April, 2013
Single ‘Black and Blue’ will be released on 1st April, 2013
Scholars’ debut album ‘Always Lead, Never Follow’ will be released through Banquet Records on 8th April. Single ‘Black and Blue’ is out the week before but now the band have unveiled a new album track ‘More Medicine’ with the help of a lyric video shot at one of their live shows.
Razor tight and bursting with energy, Scholars’ live show has that ability to win people over, no matter who they’re playing to. For Sam, that was tested when they hit the road with Canterbury and Mallory Knox at the tail end of 2012. “I expected us to go out there to a lot of raised eyebrows, but people really took to us,” he confesses. “I think it’s engaging the crowd and getting involved with them; we make an impact on people by being a very expressive live band.”
‘Always Lead, Never Follow’ captures all of that expression and more. Recorded under the guidance of ex-Hundred Reasons man Larry Hibbitt between Brixton and Melton Mowbray in the first half of 2012.
