Watch the lyric video for Kicking Roses illustrated by Sprankenstein HERE.
“Enchanting, fragile folk-pop from a humble talent” - The Independent
“Fragile and steeped in emotion” - DIY
“Make no mistake Leftwich is the real deal” - Q
Following the release of his long awaited, critically acclaimed second album After The Rain, Benjamin Francis Leftwich has announced his latest single, the stunning Kicking Roses. One of the record’s most innovative, forward thinking tracks, Kicking Roses sees Leftwich trading in his signature acoustic sound for layered electronics that flicker with gospel tinged vocals, offering an insight into the depth and emotion of After The Rain.
The single comes as Ben prepares to head out on a tour through the UK, Europe and US this autumn, including a date at London’s Islington Assembly Hall.
He'll be here at Rescue Rooms on 26th September: http://bit.ly/2ciR1VO

Please note our Nothing But Thieves gig is now being RESCHEDULED - a new date is to be announced soon.
News from the band:
"Dear NBT fans,
Nothing is more important to this band than you. Without your support, we wouldn't get to do what we love day in and day out. We have been looking forward to our headlining tour for months and were honestly blown away by the response, so thank you.
Two days ago we got a call from Muse's team offering us dates on their tour. As I'm sure you know, this is absolutely huge for a band in our position. However, when we saw the dates conflicted with our headline tour, we were obviously torn - rescheduling dates is not something we enjoy doing. We spent ages discussing what to do amongst ourselves, with our management, booking agent, and RCA.
We worked out that we can reschedule most of the headline dates that clash with Muse within a couple of weeks (end of March, mid April) which would mean we could do both tours around the same time. It's not ideal, but it's the best we could do. (We asked Muse to move their entire arena tour for us but sadly they declined. Bit rude!)
So we're writing to say we're really sorry if this is a pain for you. At the end of the day, it's a one-time opportunity that we just couldn't walk away from. We are going to play as many headline dates as possible that don't conflict with the Muse dates. Then, we are working on rescheduling the missed dates very quickly. Seeing as we just got this news, we don't have the dates to tell you yet, but we will get that info to you asap, hopefully as soon as Monday.
Tickets will all be refundable or honoured for the rescheduled shows. We hope you can still make it out to see us. We are working on ways to make this up to you, we won't forget that you're doing us a favour. We'll be on Twitter and Facebook as much as possible tonight to answer any questions. Thank you for understanding.
Conor, Joe, Dom, Price, Phil"
