Yes. English Folk hero, Beans On Toast, will be taking his brand new live band out on tour for the first time this February and March.
With a new-look outfit comprising Scottish guitar wizard/folk songsmith Memphis Gerald, honky-tonk royalty King Killership, percussive powerhouse Abbi Drums, and festival poet extraordinaire Bassie Gracie; Beans and the band will be smashing out tunes from his highly acclaimed new album The Toothpaste And The Tube, alongside a long list of bangers from his insanely huge back catalogue of songs.
Every night of the tour, as well as performing with Beans, each individual band member will be showcasing their own material with a solo supporting set earlier on in the evening.
Speaking about how The Beans On Toast Band came together, Beans explains:
“I’m excited to take my brand new band out on tour this month. This is a collection of fantastic musicians that I assembled at last year’s Glastonbury. We’ll be giving the full band treatment to a bunch of my old tunes as well as some tracks from the new album. I reckon it’s gonna be proper special! Some of the band members are also performers in their own right, so each night, Memphis Gerald, King Killership and Bassie Gracie will also be performing, we’ll be like an old skool travelling show, visiting some of my favourite independent venues around the UK.”
In December last year, Beans On Toast released his acclaimed new album The Toothpaste And The Tube recorded with the sensational blues duo Ferris & Sylvester. His latest offering is one that hits hard and hits home. From unfiltered takes on weighty topics like the environment, the UK political landscape, and war, to lighter universal reflections on parenthood, whimsical creatures, and the sheer bliss of a sea dip; the 13 songs of ‘The Toothpaste And The Tube’ finds the cult folk hero in his finest form and doing exactly what he does best.
