Tom Robinson+Band: Latitude 2015

From September onwards Tom’s touring lineup will be driven by the sonic attack of his own wall-of-sound bass playing made famous with TRB, Faithless drummer Andy Treacey, the chainsaw violin stylings of producer Gerry Diver, top London guitarslinger Adam Phillips (Richard Ashcroft, Cher, Rod Stewart etc) and Mancunian soul vocalist Lee Forsyth Griffiths.

With 15 shows currently booked throughout October and November, Tom Robinson’s Mighty Sword of Justice Tour – with special guests Kitten Pyramid – see him make a long overdue return to the UK tour circuit as both bands kick off in Hailsham Pavillion on 25th October.

Before then, Tom showcases Only The Now at London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall in September with festival shows at Green Man and Ramsbottom with a warm up at favourite Southampton venue The Brook (full dates below).

ONLY THE NOW – THE NEW ALBUM
Inspired by the wealth of new tunes that cross his desk every week, Tom has recorded Only The Now – his own first new studio album since 1996 – with violinist and award-winning producer Gerry Diver. The songs are as vibrant and edgy as any he’s ever written: the sound of a veteran craftsman – drawing on his long, rich fund of experience – with a renewed energy and purpose.
Only The New has been funded entirely through the PledgeMusic fan platform and will be released on 16 October 2015. It features a diverse range of special guests including John Grant, Billy Bragg, Martin Carthy, Colin Firth, Nadine Shah, Lee Forsyth Griffiths, Lisa Knapp, Sir Ian McKellen, TV Smith, and Nitin Sawhney.
