Following the release of their critically acclaimed album ‘Paths,’ Wille & The Bandits return to tour the UK from February to April 2020. Dates include Manchester (28 February), Glasgow (7 March), Cardiff (14 March) and London (20 March). A 48-hour ticket pre-sale will start from Wednesday October 2nd from www.willeandthebandits.com. General on-sale date for tickets is Friday October 4th. The new single ‘Victim Of The Night’ is released Friday 4th October and will be accompanied by a music video.

The band’s latest album Paths encapsulates the excitement and gusto of rock and roll. The album is a breath of fresh air challenging the listener while embracing technology and instrumental possibilities that are afforded to musicians in current times.

The singles Find My Way and Four Million Days were playlisted on Planet Rock with Find My Way making it on the A-list for three months.

Wille & The Bandits manage to encompass musical diversity which makes their music so appealing. They adopt the musical essence, nostalgia and discovery of the late 60’s and 70’s and mix rock and roll with a contemporary approach, combining elements of world music, dance music and hip-hop, all of which creates something unique.

The Bandits have toured with the likes of Deep Purple, Status Quo, Joe Bonamassa, the Jon Butler Trio and Warren Haynes. In 2014 the band was voted in the Top Ten bands to see at Glastonbury. They also played the Isle of Wight festival as well as at the London Olympics, picked to play by being voted one of UK’s best Live acts. Other festival appearances include Boardmasters and several festivals in Europe.

Don’t believe our word but Blues in Britain magazine thinks Wille & The Bandits are eclectic and highly recommend everyone to experience them live. Powerplay magazine describes the band as authentic sounding. The rest of the media has nothing but good things to say about the band, and highly recommend the best way to get the most out of them is by seeing them in concert.

The band just returned from their first American tour which included a dream gig in Nashville.

Wille & The Bandits today release their new single ‘Four Million Days‘. The single is released  in North America, the UK and Europe.

This is a haunting track about a man’s journey as an adopted child searching for his real parents.  The song has a great lap steel slide guitar solo that is reminiscent to Pink Floyd and Dave Gilmour, and as the song progresses, it builds into a big crescendo.

Four Million Days‘ is the third radio track from the Bandits’ album ‘Paths‘.

As one of the UK’s breakout artist over the last 12 months, the Kris Barras Band have had a whirlwind rise which has seen them announce that they will be playing the biggest venues they have ever headlined this October. Joining them on the headline tour, on selected dates, will be Wille & The Bandits and Elles Bailey.

Tickets available from HERE

The rise? Well, from the release of last years ‘The Divine And Dirtythere have been the; A-list radio singles, a string of sold out shows on every headline tour, playing to an audience of 2m on BBC Radio 2, touring Europe as a frontman with the legendary Billy Gibbons and Supersonic Blues Machine and the riotous festival performances. Those festival shows have included seeing them as the only band to play 3 years in a row at Ramblin’ Man Fair, rocketing from the new band stage (2017), to the Blues Stage (2018) and now to Main Stage (2019). They are also the only artist ever to have an unprecedented one in-one out performance at 2018’s Planet Rockstock Festival, which has also seen them added to 2019s Main Stage.

The Devon born Barras and his band have barely had the time to catch their breath, having a non-stop year that has also seen them zigzag the country supporting; Beth Hart, The Magpie Salute, Joanne Shaw Taylor, King King, GUN and Therapy? They capped off this with a flood of critical praise and an ever-growing fervent fan base which contributed to them winning Planet Rock Radio’s prestigious ‘2019 Best New Band’ Award.

They will be joining US Arena rockers Black Stone Cherry as main support on their upcoming July UK tour including the sold out Caerphilly Castle as well as 2019 shows with John Mayall & The Blues Breakers, Walter Trout and Jonny Lang.

“We’ve had a crazy year,” says Barras. “We went from playing to 75 people a show in early 2018, up to selling out 500 cap venues just 12 months later. This October will see us head out on our biggest UK tour to date and will coincide with the release of a brand new album. Every tour that we do, we try to raise the bar and improve as a band….I can guarantee that this one will be another step up.”
