THE ENGLISH BEAT

ANNOUNCE SEPTEMBER UK TOUR DATES

+ BRAND NEW MATERIAL

*STARRING ORIGINAL LEAD-SINGER DAVE WAKELING*

“…the band’s secret weapon was pop, the ear-candy tunes and sharp-fanged lyrics of frontman Dave Wakeling – at his finest, a singer-songwriter as savagely witty as Elvis Costello.” ROLLING STONE

Dave Wakeling – the songwriter and lead-singer of The Beat – returns to the UK this September for a full UK tour, where he will be showcasing new material due for release in 2016.

The singer, songwriter and guitarist behind the biggest 1980’s  2-Tone Band, The Beat, known in the US as The English Beat, Dave Wakeling is the consummate showman, touring the world with an  all-star line-up, performing all the hits of The Beat, General Public and a host of new songs.

The English Beat will play an extensive run of UK dates including shows at O2 Academy venues in Liverpool, Sheffield, London, Oxford, Bristol, Newcastle, Leeds and Dave’s hometown and the birthplace of many Beat lyrics and classics, Birmingham.

The band has been busy in the studio working on the new album due for release early next year. With a batch of new songs under their belt including Every Time You Told Me, Dem Call It Ska and Redemption Time, the band are more excited than ever to return to their home shores. There will also be a special download link to exclusive unreleased tracks for every ticket buyer.

With a unique energy, pure melody, passion and politics, it’s impossible to forget the  genius of UK Top 10 singles, ‘Mirror in the Bathroom’, ‘Hands Off She’s Mine’ and Too Nice To Talk To’, before The Beat disbanded in 1983.

“…never worked so hard in my life, but it is also great fun, and I am thrilled how the band, album and tours are all coming together so nicely…we are on a roll!” Dave Wakeling
