Our Glorious Leaders
One year on from their Play On The Day triumph, Leaders Of Men have the world at their feet. Frontman Brian Ashe explains why success won’t change them.

“The background in music that I come from is a lot of three-and-a-half minute gems and hooky choruses. This is the idea with Leaders Of Men – to do whatever the fuck we want to do. That’s why we have 20-bar intros where it’s just drums which are never going to get onto the radio. Slow burners are best in the long run, though. Most of the best music is like that. If you love a song straight away, you’ll hate it a few weeks later. Whereas with us, give it ten or fifteen listens and the more it’ll start to reward you. That’s my theory and I’m fuckin’ sticking to it!”
Leaders Of Men play Arthur's Day on September 27.
