It’s been an incredible last 6 months for Brighton-based folk collective, Sons of Noel and Adrian. Following the UK release of their debut in the summer and a string of monumental live shows across the country, the Sons… are now preparing to elevate their soulful and intimate live experience to higher plains as they gear up for their first ever UK & European tour AND the world-wide launch of their debut album in April!

Sponsored by End of The Road Festival, the UK leg of the tour will see the Sons… joining Mumford and Sons as main support on the last week of their tour in February!

With over 30 shows already lined-up, including an invitation from Ronnie Scott’s in London, the Sons… will release a special limited edition tour EP, through Shelsmusic in March. The EP will feature 3 new tracks as well as a special radio cut of their debut single “The Wreck Is Not A Boat”, which hits the radio waves in March.

Only 300 copies of the EP will be made, by hand at the Shelsmusic family sweat shop in Los Angeles – copies will be available for pre-order next month through

Here’s a peek of the artwork!

We’d like to invite you to join in our support of the Sons… and enjoy in what’s shaping to be the start of a bright new year!

*Shelsmusic Tour In Rock Sound!

January 9, 2009

Pick up the new issue of Rock Sound for TONS of good stuff including a live review of our recent London show at the Camden Underworld. We’re STILL recovering from an awesome time and are looking forward to more Epic adventures with you all in 2009.

In other news, our sexy buddies in Latitudes are busy writing their debut full-length which makes us hella excited. They plan to record in June with Chris Fielding (Napalm Death, Raging Speedhorn, Taint and more). You can catch Latitudes live this month (Jan 30th) with Rinoa + Dragged into Sunlight at the Fighting Cocks in Kingston.

Check out their myspace for more info!

In the meantime… have a Happy Friday! 😉 xx
