Hot off the buzz that Robert Jon & The Wreck have created during their current tour of the UK, where they have received rave reviews and have sold out concerts in Manchester, Nottingham, London and Edinburgh, the five-piece Northern Californian band are pleased to announce they will return to tour the UK in May 2022.
The first UK show confirmed in 2022 is London The Garage on Sunday May 15. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday September 24 at www.alttickets.com/robert-jon-the-wreck-tickets.
The news of the 2022 UK concert follows the recent release of the band’s critically acclaimed new studio album 'Shine A Light On Me Brother' (review Here).
The album features the hit singles 'Shine A Light On Me Brother' and 'Everyday' - infectious blues rock anthems that have been getting spins on UK radio stations including Planet Rock, BBC Radio 2, Radio Caroline, The Max, Total Rock, HRH, MMH, ERB, and many more.
“Shine A Light On Me Brother is a striking ten-track barn burner.”
“It’s like hearing the Blues Brothers and Blackberry
Smoke doing Proud Mary in the desert."
The band are currently in middle of an 11-date UK tour, and despite the post-lockdown blues, the Californian 5-piece band are receiving an incredible reception, including sold out shows, enthusiastic reviews and fan reaction.
Says the Wreck’s frontman, Robert Jon Burrison, “Our latest single, 'Everyday', is an all-out good-time jam track that was born out of frustration due to lack of freedoms that we had grown used to pre-pandemic and were subsequently denied during lockdown. It’s about the desire to get together with friends, play music, have some beers, and just spend time with each other in person again. This track is one to be listened to on repeat and sung along to.”
'Shine a Light on Me Brother' is available on CD, vinyl, limited edition deluxe coloured vinyl, and limited edition bundles including signed deluxe edition vinyl, ltd edition t-shirt, signed CD, retro California vanity plates, and signed limited edition photos of Robert Jon & The Wreck. The album is available from https://ffm.to/rjtwshine and www.robertjonandthewreck.com.
