After earning a No.5 chart position in the UK Official Albums Chart as well as widespread critical acclaim for their self-titled debut album, Far From Saints today announce details of their first full UK headline tour alongside the release of the new single ‘Let The Light Shine Over You’.
Consisting of Kelly Jones of Stereophonics with Patty Lynn and Dwight Baker from The Wind and The Wave, Far From Saints have made a striking impression with their select shows to date. They received a rapturous reception at their sold-out headline show at EartH Theatre, hit the Glastonbury and Black Deer festivals, played stadiums with Kings of Leon, a Teenage Cancer Trust benefit with Roger Daltrey, as well as major outdoor shows with Paul Weller and Incubus. The new headline tour includes 16 dates, culminating in a show at the Islington Assembly Hall in London.
Fans who sign up to the Far From Saints mailing list HERE will receive access to a pre-sale for tour tickets. The pre-sale opens at 9.30am this Thursday, July 20th and will continue until any remaining tickets go on general sale from 9.30am on Friday, July 21st.
In the meantime, this coming week will see Far From Saints play two Cardiff Castle shows with Tom Jones (July 21st and 24th), the Latitude Festival (July 22nd) and Englefield House with Hozier (July 23rd).
Far From Saints’ new single ‘Let The Light Shine Over You’ is already established as a staple of their live shows and was heralded by The Upcoming “as one of the most stunning tracks on the record, with some gorgeous strings accompanying Jones and Lynn and adding another element to an already vast soundscape.” The soulful slow-burner is a warm embrace of a song, with lyrics that offer a glimpse of positivity for whenever the demands of life begin to feel like too much.
