The Lathums have today released a digital ‘Live From Sefton Park’ album, allowing fans to re-live their historic performance at the live music pilot event in Liverpool. The Wigan band cemented their position as one of the most exciting names in music when they performed in front of 5,000 people, alongside Katie Owen, Zuzu and Blossoms at the landmark gig.
It was the band’s second appearance in the city, with the previous 2020 show at the Shipping Forecast hosting just 200 fans. The slot was testament to their meteoric rise over the last couple of years, becoming one of the most hotly tipped bands in UK guitar music. The Lathums sold out Victoria Warehouse in Manchester without a debut album to their name, and the crowd at Sefton Park created a jubilant atmosphere for the band in the biggest show of their career so far – a sign of things to come!
Across all of the pilot test events held, only 11 people tested positive for Covid-19. The results shone a positive light on the future of live music, with singer and songwriter, Alex Moore commenting: “It’s only now, knowing that everybody could enjoy themselves and it remain safe, that the picture is complete and we’re so grateful to have been there. The atmosphere at Sefton Park before the show was a real buzz and then our time on stage went so quickly. The feeling afterwards will never leave me, just overjoyed to have played our songs to that many people and for that many people to respond so generously. It was a privilege for all of us.”
The Lathums confirmed a headline tour for later this year, as well as playing desirables support slots for Paul Weller and Blossoms. You can find ticket info at www.thelathums.com. You can listen to ‘Live From Sefton Park’ HERE.Follow us on our socials:
