The King Blues, who very, very recently announced their reunion, have announced details of some headline shows.
The band will take to Southend and Newcastle for a duo of warmup shows ahead of their tour with The Wonder Years and Enter Shikari*.
Enter Shikari frontman Rou Reynolds had this to say on their reunion; “The King Blues are such an important British band. With music influenced by many different genres and cultures, and lyrics that represent and reinforce the people. Its great to have them back. We had a blast when we toured together a few years back, so can’t wait to go off galavanting around the country with them again.
“And for all those folk (usually the grumbling, weathered and out of touch) in the media asking “Where are all the bands with something to say?” Well, here’s three bands who – even though they approach it from different directions – create music that stems from punk; and carry its spirit, its invigorating power, and its willingness to engage with issues both personal and social.”
