Dutch Uncles / March 2017 UK Tour

By on Friday, 28th October 2016 at 8:00 am

Greater Manchester band Dutch Uncles have announced their fifth album is on the horizon. It’s all been very hush hush but with a new profile photo and cover shot on their Facebook, anticipation is high. Says frontman Duncan Wallis, “For the past 15 months we’ve been constructing an album that reflects our live instincts, so to say that we are giddy at this announcement would be an understatement.”

Naturally, the band will be supporting this new release and with that, they’ve announced a UK tour to take place in March 2017. A presale has already started, but the general sale for tickets begins today at 9 AM. For more of TGTF’s coverage on Dutch Uncles, go here.

Stornoway / February and March 2017 UK Tour

By on Thursday, 27th October 2016 at 9:00 am


A bird is three things:
Feathers, flight and song,
And feathers are the least of these.

– Marjorie Allen Seiffert, “The Shining Bird”

On Tuesday, Oxford folk-pop quartet Stornoway made this surprise announcement that they will disband early next year, so that band members Brian Briggs, Jon Ouin, and Rob and Oli Steadman might pursue other individual interests. The news is quite sad for us here at TGTF, where Stornoway have been long-time favourites, but the announcement comes with a happy twist for the band’s UK fans, in the form of a Farewell Tour scheduled for next February and March.

Support for the following live dates will be played by Canadian indie rock band Brasstronaut, and tickets will be available beginning Friday the 28th of October at 10 AM. Just below the tour date listing, you’ll find Stornoway’s final promo video, a rare track from their ‘Bonxie’ recording sessions titled ‘Night Drive’.

TGTF’s extensive archive of coverage on Stornoway is collected here.
