Classic Album Sundays takes on Violator – a discussion with our authors

We’re back on Classic Album Sundays this weekend!

While we may not have the in-person, amazing-soundsystem-version of the event from a few years ago – those who tune in will get BOTH our co-authors talking through the Violator era and answering questions about the album via a virtual meet-up.

We hope you can join us. We’ll see you at that time! <groan>

It takes place at 8pm (UK time) on Sunday, September 26.

Here are the details via the Classic Album Sundays website:

For this month’s Album Club we have a special treat in celebration of the 30th anniversary of Depeche Mode’s Violator. We will be joined by Kevin May and David McElroy, the authors behind the forthcoming book Halo: The Story Behind Depeche Mode’s Classic Album Violator. They will relay the inside scoop behind the band’s seventh studio album- one that took the band to even greater heights.

The Album Club is open to our Patreon Members and is like a book club in which we meet up on Zoom for an in-depth exploration of our featured album. After saying hello, we tell the story behind the album and this month our guest authors will deliver the presentation. This is followed by a full, uninterrupted playback of the album in which we all listen on whichever format available to us in our respective homes. Then we reconvene on Zoom for a post-album discussion and Kevin and David will be available to answer questions. Its a great way to meet like-minded music fans and have an immersive album experience, without even leaving your home.

To join us, subscribe as a Classic Album Sundays Patreon ‘Member’ for £10 on our Patreon page. Members enjoy access to three Classic Album Sundays events each month: our Album Club, the Classic Album Pub Quiz and the Safe & Sound webinar in which we are joined by an audio expert to help demystify high end audio and give you tips on how to improve your home listening experience.

Sign up and see what you think – we think you will be surprised at how you can still connect with others through music during this time. Its also the way we are keeping Classic Album Sundays going and we really appreciate your support. We look forward to meeting you!
