Fred Deakin’s immersive Sci-Fi shows announced for February 2020

Lemon Jelly producer FRED DEAKIN is back and will be taking audiences into the new decade on a very different kind of trip. Marking his return to the live stage with a series of UK dates in 2020, Fred Deakin proudly presents… The Lasters. 


‘The Lasters’ is an ambitious new solo project inspired by classic concept albums like The Who’s ‘Quadrophenia’ and Jeff Wayne’s ‘The War of the Worlds’. A wholly original and truly out-of-this-world Sci-Fi concept record to rival the best, ‘The Lasters’ tells the tale of Earth’s final family. Fred Deakin will be bringing this story to life with a visionary new live production set to tour around the UK for the very first time.

In a musical first for the former Lemon Jelly producer, ‘The Lasters’ has also seen him collaborate with ex-Ash member Charlotte Hatherley as well as newcomers Abi Sinclair and Steffan Huw Davies in addition to adding his own vocals to the album. Pulling out all the stops, the upcoming live shows will feature all four vocalists singing in character amongst projection-mapped animations. 


Set in a dystopian near future where climate crisis and a nuclear holocaust has brought Earth to the brink of extinction, the album marks Deakin’s first major release since his time as one half of hugely influential, Mercury and Brit-nominated Lemon Jelly. Marking Fred’s first foray into song-writing and singing, ‘The Lasters’ weaves together a number of contemporary themes including climate change, dependence on technology and coming-of-age, while still containing the inventive, broad and unfailingly catchy tunes that Lemon Jelly fans will be familiar with.
