Beans On Toast’s fourth studio album ‘Fishing For A Thank You’, came out to high acclaim at the end of last year. A career defining record that, in his own amiable style, deals with such matters as protests, love, drugs, religion, Wetherspoons pubs and angry birds with his perfected, witty social commentary. Bolstered by an accordion and a backing brass section, this is Beans’ most complete and mature sounding record.
From the album comes the new single ‘Beer &A Burger’ released on 15th July 2013; a catchy ode to the demise of the Great British boozer with a killer trumpet solo.

2012 was a very busy year for Beans On Toast:
· Supported Frank Turner at his sold out Wembley Arena show back in April.
· Spent the summer packing out tents at a string of summer festivals, including Blissfields, Secret Garden Party, Kendall Calling, Bestival and more.
· Headlined his own incredible show at London’s Scala in September which was recorded for a live album to be released next year.
