It gives me enormous pleasure to announce the supports for the UK tour in November. Coming on the road with me and the Sleeping Souls will be Tim Barry and Jim Lockey & The Solemn Sun.
Tim used to play for legendary punk band Avail, but now has a long history of releasing solo country punk records under his belt. We met on the Revival tour in the USA in 2008, and have been firm friends ever since. For those unfamiliar with his work, I’d start with the album “Manchester”, or maybe his latest, “40 Miler”. Both classics.
Jim Lockey & The Solemn Sun, well, what can I say that I haven’t said already? My favourite new band. Get down early to check them out. The dates and ticket links are all to be found here.
