Following the release of the stunning collaboration album ‘We’re All In This Together’ in September 2017, Walter Trout will be returning to the UK for 5 dates. His tour will start at The Robin in Bilston on Sunday 25 Noember and travel through The Picturedrome in Holmfirth, Oran Mor in Glasgow, Wylam Brewery in Newcastle and finishing at Planet Rockstock in Trecco Bay, Wales.

Talking about coming back for the shows Walter says; “I am really looking forward to the upcoming shows in the UK. the people there have been supporting my music for almost 28 years now–and I love them for that. My band has never sounded better than it does right now, and we can’t wait to play for our UK friends and fans.”

We’re All In This Together’ feaures a stellar cast of guests; John Mayall, Joe Bonamassa, Randy Bachman, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Warren Haynes, Sonny Landreth, Charlie Musselwite, Mike Zito, Robben Ford, Eric Gales, Edgar Winter, Joe Louis Walker , John Németh and his son Jon Trout.

Walter Trout is the beating heart of the modern blues rock scene. Respected by the old guard. Revered by the young guns. Adored by the fans who shake his hand after the show each night. After five decades in the game, Trout is a talismanic figure and the glue that bonds the blues community together, at a time when the wider world has never been so divided. He’s also the only artist with the vision, talent and star-studded address book to pull off a project on the scale of ‘We’re All In This Together‘. “It was quite a piece of work to get this record together,” he admits. “But I guess I have a lot of friends, y’know…?”

The Treatment

Following the release of their latest album ‘Pills’ in June,  Big Boy Bloater & The LiMiTs will be on the road from September to October touring the UK.

Following on from 2016’s ‘Luxury HoboSurrey born Bloater re-focusses himself and ‘Pills‘ is a reflection of him having a clearer head. “I guess a lot of stuff happened on the ‘Luxury Hobo‘ tour. Maybe after the depression, my minds a bit more open and turned on to things, so I have observed more.

Recorded in December 2017 with producer Adam Whalley, the band trimmed down to a power trio of Big Boy Bloater (Vocals/Guitar), Matt Cowley (Drums) and Steven Oates (Bass) for the new album and it kicks off with the rip-roaring title track ‘Pillsan extension from the previous album and highlights the constant need for pills today but has a sinister edge.

The album continues with the autobiographical ‘Friday Night’s Alright For Drinking‘ and into the bleakly observant feet-moving ‘Saturday Night Desperation Shuffle‘ gliding seamlessly on to the gloriously poppy ‘Stop Stringing Me Along‘ which tells the tale of cigar-smoking scoundrels who promise the moon and to make you a million dollars, but ultimately, nothing happens. The angry undertones are masked by the candy coated exterior. “I’ll either write autobiographical or invent these characters, and because you can do so much more with them, anything’s possible.  You can make them as outrageous as you want, I like to blur the line between the two” he explains.

A lover of all things horror, especially Amicus and Hammer Horror, there are always nods towards the ominous or outlandish. If ‘Luxury Hobo’s, ‘It Came Outta the Swamp‘ was B-Movie then ‘Unnaturally Charming‘ is more Hitchcock.  More sinister tales weave themselves into place on the beautifully juxtaposed ‘Oops Sorry‘and the Tom Waits-esque ‘Mouse Organ

She Didn’t Even Buy A Ticket‘ follows a real incident. “It happened at a gig,” he remembers. “Someone actually gate-crashed looking for her husband, who was out on a date with another woman.” The story didn’t end there, at a later show he was talking to the audience about his new songs when, at the end of the night, two people came up to him and said, ‘that couple you talked about, that was us’. “Did I feel red faced that night” he laughs. In the finale, we find out about what happened to our friend the Swamp Monster from Luxury Hobo on the beautifully poignant Ukulele strummed album closer ‘A Life Full of DebtMore than ever, the band effortlessly flit through styles and pace creating an album full of depth, emotion, humour, anger and sheer fun, all the time keeping the thread that makes Big Boy Bloater & The LiMiTs such a unique proposition. “I always used to like the Portmanteau horror films where they have 3 or 4 different stories in the film. So you’ve always got this constant change and you never really got bored of one story and then there this theme tying it all together.

Over the last two years the band have toured the UK to packed shows, headlined Wychwood Festival, pulled in new fans at Camden Rocks Festival, supported Joanne Shaw Taylor, performed on the back of a pickup truck for a charity chili night, played with The Quireboys at a brewery and enjoyed “one of the most enjoyable” gigs they’ve ever done at Ramblin’ Man Fair in 2017.

American/Brit Rockers, Tyketto will tour the UK in March 2019 to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of their ‘Strength In Numbers‘ album.

Coming off the heels of their classic 1991 debut album, ‘Don’t Come Easy‘ (which introduced the band’s timeless Anthem, ‘Forever Young‘), Tyketto fired back in 1994 with their powerful sophomore release; ‘Strength In Numbers‘.

Relentless touring throughout 1994 resulted in a #1 requested MTV video for their single ‘The End of The Summer Days‘, and songs like ‘Rescue Me‘, ‘Catch My Fall‘, ‘Meet Me In The Night‘ and ‘The Last Sunset‘ became instant live staples.

Fans throughout the U.K. embraced the band, and this album, as their own, and so began a quarter-century run of successful tours throughout England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the album’s release, the band will tour throughout the U.K. this coming March, and will be performing the ‘Strength In Numbers‘ album in its entirety.
Tickets go on general sale on Friday 24 August at 10am.

Fresh off his G3 European and UK tour with Joe Satriani and John Petrucci, former Scorpions guitarist Uli Jon Roth is widely regarded as one of the greatest guitar players ever. He is one of the last greats who is still around to present his magical style of playing which he already forged in the late Sixties when he was still in his teens. Uli played his first ever show in December 1968 – at the age of 13 – and to celebrate his upcoming 50th Stage Anniversary, he will play 6 very special UK concerts.

The UK tour starts at the Corporation in Sheffield on Thursday 29th November, followed by University of London Union (Friday 30th November), Coventry’s Kasbah (Saturday 1 December), Manchester’s Academy 3 (Sunday 2 December), Glasgow’s Oran Mor (Monday 3 December) and Milton Keynes’ The Stables (Wednesday 5 December).  Tickets are on sale Tuesday 17th July

The two hour-plus programme will consist of carefully selected highlights from Uli’s entire musical career, which – by now – is spanning no less than 5 decades! The amazing thing is that Uli Jon Roth keeps on getting better, as we have seen amply demonstrated by his astonishing and powerful recent appearances at the G3 Tour of Europe and the UK with Joe Satriani and John Petrucci.

In recent times, Uli has successfully revisited the early music of his celebrated Scorpions days which resulted in the superb ‘Scorpions Revisited‘ double CD and ‘Tokyo Tapes Revisited‘ DVD/Blu-Ray releases. The 50th Anniversary set will naturally include the best of that timeless material, including ‘The Sails of Charon’, ‘In Trance’, ‘Fly to the Rainbow’ and many other songs.

Dan Reed Network are delighted to announce their upcoming ‘Origins’ November 2018 Headline UK Tour that will see the band take in major cities across the UK in support of their impending new album ‘Origins‘ (released November 2018).

Tickets are now on sale from www.danreed-network.com/tickets.

Dan Reed Network will showcase new material from the upcoming album whilst revisiting the hits and reworking some DRN classics in what promises to be a raucous celebration of their inaugural, global, fan immersive recording project ‘Origins.

We wanted to explore the opportunity to make our own decisions and taking ownership of our material, our trajectory and ultimately our love of creating music and entertaining those who support it,” says Dan Reed. “The November UK tour will be an embodiment of that.

The ‘Origins‘ tour is by direct result of Dan Reed Network recording eight songs across three continents in front of 500 fans over the space of six months.

“Our live studio recording days have been a highlight moment in our career,” explains Reed. “Being able to showcase these new songs in a live environment will be a fantastic opportunity to thank and celebrate with those who made them a reality.”

The tour will be DRN’s first UK jaunt since gaining rave reviews when they supported Extreme on their critically acclaimed December 2017 UK tour.

Says Reed; “The love we were shown on that tour, by not just Extreme and their management, but by those who were queuing outside the venue before the concerts, and the reception they gave us during our set, was a fantastic reminder of what we can accomplish.”

Joining the Dan Reed Network on tour in November are two of the best up and coming British rock bands, Mason Hill and Hollowstar.

“There’s a whole new wave of energetic rock bands in the UK who are ready to explode,” reflects Reed. “DRN are thoroughly looking forward to sharing the stage with these talented young bands and hopefully we can help be a small part of their rise to the top!”

Knoxville, Tennessee rockers 10 Years are thrilled be returning to the UK for the first time since their appearance at Download Festival in 2006 for a September tour following the release of their latest album ‘(how to live) As Ghosts, which was released in October 2017 on Mascot Records.

Fri 7 Sep – Lincoln Imp, Scunthorpe – TICKETS

Following a fantastic Canadian tour with Shinedown and In This Moment earlier this year, 10 Years continue to power through the open road including US shows with Breaking Benjamin, A Perfect Circle, Stone Temple Pilots, Black Stone Cherry, Fozzy, Popevil, Seether, Nonpoint, Butcher Babies and more as well as festival appearances at Rock on the Range, Northern Invasion and Rockfest so the UK can expect an explosive show.

Guitarist Matt Wantland said, “I’m genuinely excited to get back to Europe; we haven’t been able to make the journey since around 2008. So much of my favorite music and culture was born, and lives, in that part of the world. I want to share in that energy, and I want them to share it back with us. Travel and new experiences are what help you grow as a human being, as a person, and as a band I don’t think there’s a better opportunity than this to grow personally and professionally and to push us to a new level. We’ve always felt Europe is a place we should be spending more of our time.”
The first single from the album, ‘Novacaine,’ has received over 4.8 million plays on Spotify, with the combined streams for the album exceeding 10.5 million streams.  The video has been viewed over 1.3 million times and was playlisted at Scuzz and Kerrang TV as well as the song being playlisted at Planet Rock and Kerrang Radio. With the release of this video, and over half a million streams to date, ‘Burnout’ follows in its footsteps to being on it’s way to becoming a global hit.

10 Years returned in October 2017 with the new studio album (how to live) AS GHOSTS, and welcomed back former members Brian Vodinh (guitar / drums) and Matt Wantland (guitar) alongside Chad Huff (bass), Kyle Mayer (drums) and Jesse Hasek (vocals). The band’s eighth studio album was produced by the Grammy Award winning Nick Raskulinecz (Alice in Chains, Foo Fighters, Deftones, KoRn, Mastodon).

Bad Touch are pleased to announce they have signed a worldwide album deal with Marshall Records. Their new album, ‘Shake A Leg‘, will be released on Friday 5th October 2018. The band will support the release with their “Shake A Leg” 18-date UK headline tour that starts on Wednesday 14th October at Newcastle University Union.

Planet Rock will start a 48-hour ticket pre-sale for the tour on Wednesday 20th June via www.planetrocktickets.co.uk. Tickets will then go on sale to the general public on Friday 22nd June from www.badtouchrocks.co.uk/gigs-tours and www.seetickets.com.

The band’s highly anticipated third album, ‘Shake A Leg‘, was recorded in their home county of Norfolk at Orange Tree Studios. Engineered, produced and mixed by Andy Hodgson, the new album follows the critically acclaimed 2016 release ‘Truth Be Told‘ which featured the rock radio hit “99%”.

Shake A Leg‘ takes a more personal and ambitious approach in song-writing and production due to the bands choice to write more spontaneously within the studio itself resulting in more emotional ‘in-the-moment’ performances. The new album features hand-picked songs that originate from a collective of all the members influences which they proudly wear on their sleeve.
