Sonic Boom Six announce new album and promotional 2012 tour
The ska-punk five-piece cram 19 dates into November, marking a new album with a new label - tickets on sale from Monday 23rd July
Your Nan, no doubt, has a broad church of sage advice at which you are invited to worship. 'Neither a lender nor a borrower be' could come in handy in these straightened times. Another old favourite is about bad news 'coming in threes'.
Try telling that to fans of Sonic Boom Six who are waking up to a triple-whammy of fantastic news about their punk-ska genre terrorist idols. The trigger has been the news that the Manchester five-piece (yeah, 'Six', we know) has signed to Xtra Mile Recordings, home to Frank Turner among others. On top of that, the band will be releasing their fourth studio album in October and will be promoting the new material on a huge November tour. One, two, three - BOOM.
On signing for Xtra Mile, SB6 vocalist and sparkling frontwoman Laila K told Allgigs: "We're really excited to be on an independent label like Xtra Mile who encourage free thinking artists to grow while helping them to move up that next level." With the band's stock steadily and inexorably rising since forming a decade ago, the hard-working five-piece look set to continue winning friends. And Laila is already feeling confident about the new era, "With the label's help and the new sound of the album, it's a winning team!"
The tour kicks off in Nottingham on 2nd November, followed by dates in Leicester, Leeds, Hull, Truro, Newcastle and more, before the final date at the Meze Lounge in Newport on 24th November 2012. The schedule of 19 shows in 23 days takes in a hometown gig at the Manchester Academy 3 on 4th November and a London date at Borderline on the 21st.
We'll have tickets available from 9am on Monday 23rd July for Plymouth and Birmingham and Tuesday 24th for the remainder, priced from just £8. The self-titled new album is set for release on 15th October with the lead single, Virus, out around a month earlier. Boom, indeed.
