July mini tour

Just a reminder that the band’s short six date jaunt of English Towns starts next week on the south coast in Worthing. The band’s similar mini tour last summer proved to be a real treat, witnessing gigs in more intimate venues than the spring tour and this year’s one promises more of the same.  Three of the gigs are already totally sold out (Hampton, York & Holmfirth) but there are some tickets available for the other three dates. Tickets can be bought for Worthing on the 10th here, for Middlesbrough on 14th here and Blackburn on the 16th here. See you on the summer tour…

Baz picks up the story… Continue reading Baz & Merv’s European Road Trip
