Charlie Heather and Jon Sevink soon joined the duo, later followed by Alan Miles.

They released their first album, A Weapon Called the Word, in 1990.

Following the release, Alan quit the band and was replaced by Simon Friend – with Mark, Jeremy, Charlie, John, Simon and newest member Matt Savage all in the current line-up of The Levellers.

The band’s success continued throughout the 1990s, with The Levellers playing at Glastonbury Festival and releasing number one and gold-selling album, Zeitgeist, in 1995.

The Levellers have also enjoyed numerous tours of the UK and Europe, as well as further festival success.
