ROB LYNCH SUPPORTS CHUCK RAGAN FOR A TRIO OF UK AND IRISH SHOWS IN MARCH 2015

London based indie-punk troubadour Rob Lynch plays a trio of special shows in March 2015, including his first trip to Ireland and Northern Ireland, as special guest of Hot Water Music frontman Chuck Ragan.

Providing the perfect high-spirited and infectious foil to Ragan’s warm, earthy growl, Rob Lynch’s melodies will no doubt capture the hearts of fresh ears supporting Ragan’s Till Midnight tour.

Following the release of his debut album All These Nights In Bars Will Somehow Save My Soul in September 2014 on Xtra Mile Recordings - which you can buy from our web shop, Amazon, and iTunes - Rob has toured extensively in the UK and Germany, including a January stint successfully co-headlining with the excellent Allison Weiss. He continues to impress and garner followers with each show and has also caught the ears of some renowned and respected acts. Ragan is most definitely one of those.

The three dates, stopping in Dublin, Belfast and Inverness, are in March and can be seen on our gigs calendar and synced to your Google calendar too. .

Recently Rob released a free download of previously unreleased track 'Lord Knows I Have Tried'.

ROB LYNCH CONTINUES JANUARY HEADLINE TOUR WITH ALLISON WEISS IN SUPPORT

Rob Lynch is set to head off on a headline tour of the UK this month with US singer songwriter Allison Weiss and local acts as support. Dates can be found on our gigs calendar.

Due to the already heavily reported situation regarding Front Porch Step - which we will dwell on no further here - he is no longer a part of the tour. But Rob and Alison are resolved to make these dates a celebration of songwriting without him and the show will go on.

This will be Rob’s first full headline tour of the UK following the Xtra Mile Recordings release of his critically acclaimed debut album All These Nights In Bars Will Somehow Save My Soul in 2014. You can buy that from us, or from Amazon, or even download it from iTunes

Recent live dates have brought Rob’s touching stories and rousing sing-alongs to appreciative audiences around the world. Some of his adventures last year included playing the whole of Vans Warped Tour in the US, headlining packed out venues in Germany, playing Slam Dunk Festival and supporting This Wild Life in the UK.

Rob recently released a brand new song ‘Lord Knows I Have Tried’ which is available to stream and download for free. There’s also a new lyric video for ‘Stamford’ - a track that features on his debut album. 

ROB LYNCH REVEALS LYRIC VIDEO FOR 'STAMFORD' // FRONT PORCH STEP CO-HEADLINE JANUARY UK TOUR

Rob Lynch has now unveiled a lyric video for ‘Stamford’, a track that features on his debut album All These Nights In Bars Will Somehow Save My Soul, which you can buy from Xtra Mile at the online shop, Amazon, or via iTunes. In keeping with this time of year, Rob says "Stamford is a song about the nuances of going back to your hometown for a few days over Christmas, so it made sense for people to hear this song now. Merry Christmas, every one of us!"

Watch the video here:

This follows the recent release of brand new song ‘Lord Knows I Have Tried’ which is available to stream and download for free. 

Rob will be teaming up with US singer songwriter Front Porch Step for a co-headline tour of the UK in January, with Allison Weiss completing the line-up that’s a veritable celebration of supreme songwriting talent. See dates and ticket links on our Xtra Mile Recordings gigs calendar.

ROB LYNCH ANNOUNCES NEW SINGLE 'WHISKEY' OUT 22 SEPTEMBER 2014 // UK AND EUROPEAN TOUR DATES

Singer-songwriter Rob Lynch has announced his next single ‘Whiskey’, which you can listen to below, and will be released through Xtra Mile Recordings on 22 September 2014. The track is taken from his forthcoming debut album All These Nights In Bars Will Somehow Save My Soul.

Preorder the album here via iTunes, Amazon CD, or from out very own web shop. And listen to Whiskey right here:

This is a song about a night my father and I had together where we drank too much whiskey and played each other our favourite songs. He died when I was 21, and when I first went to visit him in hospital, I was walking down the corridor towards his ward and I could hear him telling the other patients around him the story about that night we had.
— Rob Lynch

Always one to focus on the positives, Rob’s debut album is full of potential singalong favourites, despite its often weighty and emotionally-driven content. He’s currently inciting such singalongs on the whole of the Vans Warped Tour in the US and will follow this rigorous bout of touring up with a full UK and European tour throughout September and October. You can get tickets here.

He'll also play a special free entry show on the album release date in his adopted hometown of London. In addition, Rob has just been announced to play Hevy Fest on the acoustic stage as part of their pre-festival Thursday night line-up. So, plenty of chances to learn words and sing with everyone!

ROB LYNCH TO RELEASE DEBUT ALBUM 'ALL THESE NIGHTS IN BARS WILL SOMEHOW SAVE MY SOUL' ON 22 SEPTEMBER 2014 // UK SEPTEMBER HEADLINE TOUR ANNOUNCED // NEW VIDEO 'FEELING GOOD'

London-based punk rock troubadour Rob Lynch will release his debut album All These Nights In Bars Will Somehow Save My Soul on 22nd September 2014 through Xtra Mile Recordings.

You can pre-order the album on CD or digitally from Xtra Mile, on CD from Amazon, or download via iTunes.

The release will follow Rob’s current stint performing on the whole of the Vans Warped Tour in the US and it’ll be dropping in the midst of a recently-announced UK headline tour.

You can also watch the brand new video for album track 'Feeling Good'. Go on.

Not one to shy away from the rigours of the road, Rob Lynch has been busy carving out his niche in bars and venues across the country, and also in Germany where he’s sold out many a show, played Reeperbahn Festival and even appeared at the legendary St Pauli FC souvenir store. Other notable festival appearances for Rob, even before he had management, agent or label on board, have included Download, Slam Dunk (UK), Groezrock (BE) and Fest (US).

Between November 2012 and August 2013, Lynch took time out to record tracks in Philadelphia with Shane Henderson (Valencia) and Hoxton, East London with Sam Duckworth (Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly), that would go on to make up his full-length album. The result was an unbelievably honest and intimate record, a 12-track journey tackling such themes as the death of his father, life on the road, and finding light in times of darkness.

As Rob himself says, opener ‘31/32’ is “a call to arms about enjoying the moment we’re living in.” From the singalong lilt of recent single ‘My Friends & I’, to the therapeutic mellowness ‘Medicine’ and unassuming tearjerker ‘Widow’, this is an album that tells many a story of sadness and regret but always with an underlying sense of positivity and hope.
