Fresh from supporting Steel Panther across the U.K., Wayward Sons, the rising rockers led by former Little Angels man Toby Jepson, have announced a run of headline dates in support of debut release 'Ghosts Of Yet To Come'.
The full headline U.K. tour takes place in April 2018, and to coincide with the shows, Wayward Sons will be releasing a brand new single 'Don’t Wanna Go'. The full list of dates can be viewed below.
The news comes as the outfit have been nominated for 3 Planet Rock “The Rocks” awards: Best British Album, Best British Single (Until The End), Best New Band. To vote you can follow this link.
Wayward Sons is a UK guitar act made up of Toby Jepson (Vocals/Guitar), Sam Wood (Guitar), Nic Wastell (Bass), Dave Kemp (Keys) and Phil Martini (Drums). They have an impressive resume of groups they have previously worked with – Little Angels, Gun, Spear Of Destiny, Treason Kings and Chrome Molly to name a few - which is reassuring in terms of the band as players, but doesn’t really hint at their sound. Wayward Sons sound nothing like the sum of their parts. The music is hard rock but mixed with a vitality and energy – both musically and lyrically.
Speaking to eonmusic in 2017, Jepson enthused about the band; "It’s like going back in time; like this is the first band we’ve ever been in. I personally feel really re-energised, and we can’t wait to get out there and start playing."
With an extensive touring experience under their belt, including UK festivals in 2017 and support to Steel Panther, UFO and Inglorious, Wayward Sons are now ready to embark on a headline UK regional tour this April. In addition, Wayward Sons will join British legends Saxon on their Autumn UK tour this October.
