I was surprised negative when I read the announcement of an acoustic album in combination with the tracklist the first time - as new output after 2012. But at least 2 titles were eye-catching: Liberty and England My Home.

Meanwhile I catched more than these 2 songs live and it was cracking good in a very different way.
Liberty AC sound is almost like a lullaby and England My Home AC tends to a dirge/requiem song.
Pretty hard to recognise some of the new arranged songs only with the music / without the lyrics.

Maybe they missed a online competition relating to the upcoming release of the new album - at best before the tracklist was public.
What do you think is the title of this old/new Levellers song? Then only the music part of a new arranged song is played as "clue"

Why did that surprise you in a negative way, vanishing.point? It sounds pretty interesting to me. Of course, you might still be right in the end. It all depends on the execution. I'm hoping for the best.

about "PEACE" (14.08.2020)
« Reply #7 on: February 10, 2020, 03:39:36 PM »
find from the shop:


"""Peace: a word that's both direct and loaded with meaning. On the surface, it suggests tranquility, evenness, a state of bliss already achieved. But the word that gives the Levellers' 11th studio album its title is open to a multitude of interpretations, too. It could be a reference to a disappearing value. It could be a sneering statement of irony. It could be a cry for calm in a crazed world. It could mean whatever you want it to mean.

Peace is the most relevant album of 2020. Its 11 electrifying songs are a charged reaction to a world that seems to be teetering on the edge of madness and self-destruction. The environment is buckling under the weight of humanity's disregard, right-wing demagogues are spreading hatred and fear across supposedly civilised nations, society and culture is trapped in a death spiral that's playing out in real time across social media

It's been a long journey to get here. Peace arrives almost eight years since the Brighton band's last album of original material, 2012's Static On The Airwaves. Produced at the band's own Metway Studios by longtime collaborator Sean Lakeman, Peace possesses the clarity and directness of early Levellers classics such as their 1990 debut album A Weapon Called The Word and its landmark follow-up, Levelling The Land.

The Levellers have always been outsiders, even during that brief period when they found themselves in the mainstream spotlight in the 1990s. The margins are where they belong, and it's where they're happiest. But being outsiders doesn't mean irrelevance. In the 30 years since they announced themselves with A Weapon Called The Word, the Levellers have created their own self-sufficient world, one that includes everything from their studio to their own festival. The fire that fuelled them 30 years ago is far from being extinguished. With Peace, that fire burns brighter than ever."""

exerpt from a interview with Jeremy for the PEACE bit - BACKSEATMAFIA, July 28, 2020
What`s your favourite tracks to play? What songs are you looking forward to playing live when you get the chance?

I actually like playing everything! Of the new stuff we just recorded I am particularly looking forward to playing Four Boys Lost and Generation Fear.
