We are The Layers

The Layers formed in late 2006 as a result of being the only four people to turn up for a speed-dating evening. The resulting angst inspired a set of original songs garnering sufficient acclaim to lead them on tour through The Netherlands, Austria, the Czech Republic, New York and across the UK, from Twelfth Note to the Green Man festival.

'Skinful of Inc.' is now available through all good online retailers and in limited edition CD at gigs.

Here is a little teaser for you...

'Belly Full of Sunshine', the first Layers Album, was launched in December of 2009 and is available Through iTunes, Amazon and all good online retailers or, if you prefer to live dangerously, contact the band for a physical copy replete with lavishly tooled artwork, sleeve notes and a very useful garotte. Available via Jiffy Bag or a sinister midnight exchange in a deserted multi-story car park. Here's a small selection from the album to whet your appetite:

Gig News!

We're taking a quick break from gigging while we bed in a new drummer! We've entered a spiritual retreat in the foothills of the Himalayers (sorry...) to rehearse and seek inspiration for new songs.
