The tour follows another epic touring schedule supporting Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls on their SOLD OUT run throughout November and December that will see them cover the length and breadth of the country. Details of this can be found here: This tour coincides with their forthcoming single ‘Wishing Well’ – out on 3rd December through Xtra Mile Recordings – which is a rousing foot-tapper with atmospheric guitar riffs, a rumbling bass solo and a crescendo that will have you humming it for weeks to come. The track is taken from their critically acclaimed album ‘Death’ released in April of this year.
It’s been a great year so far for the band. Following a phenomenal summer that saw them play a storming set at the 2000trees Festival packing out the tent; receive glorious praise from Radio 1’s Zane Lowe for their last single ‘England’s Dead’ which was his ‘Next Hype Record’; and perform live with Frank Turner at the Olympics Opening Ceremony to an estimated audience of 25million people. & @jlandtss
