For this special one-off show, the band collaborate with the maverick, 30-strong Heritage Orchestra and their conductor Jules Buckley to perform songs from Into The Murky Water and from their acclaimed debut The Sleeper in all their richly-textured glory.

The critically acclaimed album Into The Murky Water will be reissued on 31 October via Full Time Hobby.  Includes bonus disc of covers, instrumentals and rarities. 

Unfortunately, Micah P. Hinson has not yet recovered from an arm injury sustained earlier this year, and so is unable to play guitar. This means that he has had to withdraw from the support slot for The Leisure Society Meet The Heritage Orchestra show. We are pleased to announce that support instead will come from Swedish singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Loney Dear.
