The legendary electronic-dance act unveil advance player to stream forthcoming live album

Leftfield’s impact on dance music can only be described as seismic, applying to anything from demolishing musical barriers to the plaster-stripping effect they had on the ceiling of Brixton Academy in 1996, resulting on the sound system itself being banned. Regularly voted one of the best dance acts of all time, Leftfield have regularly changed the face of dance music since the 1990 release of first single – Not Forgotten.  Two albums followed; 1995’s Leftism and 1999’s Rhythm and Stealth before the band called it a day in 2001.

Returning to the live stage in 2010 with original vocalists Cheshire Cat, Earl 16 and Djum Djum and new singer Jess Mills, the band played to enthusiastic crowds all over Europe.  A tour of Australia followed in early 2011 and the demand was so great it was decided that a live album should be recorded and simply called ‘Tourism’.

The release also includes a DVD of the visuals used on stage. Designed by renowned design studio ne1co, the visuals make the album come alive.

Tourism CD / DVD is released on March 26th, 2012 via Field Note Recordings.
