Royston Langdon On The New “Chains” EP, Spacehog’s Early Days, Future Plans & More

Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Royston Langdon first found international fame in the mid-1990’s as the lead singer of the band Spacehog. Now based in Los Angeles — after 25 years in New York — Langdon is gearing up for the release of his second solo project, an EP titled Chains. The 6-track EP includes 4 new compositions, in addition to covers of songs from David Bowie and Iggy Pop. The collection was recorded in Brooklyn with Bryce Goggin (Antony & The Johnsons, The Apples In Stereo), who had worked with Langdon on Spacehog recordings in the past, and Adam Sachs.

In support of the Chains EP, Langdon will be embarking on a 25-date U.S. tour with The Psychedelic Furs, which kicks off on October 16, 2021 in Tucson, Arizona. The tour includes stops in Houston, Dallas, Austin, New Orleans, Orlando and New York, including a date at Harlem’s legendary Apollo Theater. Chains is a proper followup to 2018’s Everything Dandy — as released under the moniker LEEDS — which was renowned for carrying a futuristic pop sound yet a down-home barnyard feel.

On October 8, 2021, I had the pleasure of speaking with Royston Langdon via Zoom, as embedded below. Beyond Chains, we spoke about his unique vocal harmonies, future recording plans, and his early days in New York. More on Langdon can be found online by clicking here, here, here and here.
