back down 2013: more show announcements and all details!

Urgh, my voice. Yesterday was Lexapalooza, a wonderful charity all-dayer run by some friends of mine which is worth the suggested donation of £5. I shouted all day, including through my set midway through the day, then I spent all my money, spent everyone else's money, and took the opportunity to take in some of the best small acts the UK has to offer, both loud and quiet, including Mark McCabe, Oxygen Thief in a rare full-band show, Retrospective Soundtrack Players and one of the final gigs of superhero six-piece cock-rockers Justice Force 5, which really did have to be seen to be believed. Thanks to all of you who came, I am truly suffering.

It was lovely to catch up with everyone, which in turn has reminded me a) that my tour this year is going to be a lot of fun, and b) i should really get around to letting you know full details about the tour. So here we go. I'm excited to be heading out on my first headline tour for eighteen months, and finally finally finally get the second album out. I'm delighted (yes, delighted) to be joined on the road by a collective of friends and more-talented musicians and I wanted to include so many of them on the tour that there was no way I could confirm any 'official' tour support. As a result, the line-up is different for every single show (though London supports are tbc as I type this) but every night is guaranteed to be either entertaining or, failing that, totally free.

Hey, you get what you pay for.
