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'.

Following the huge run of gigs Matt did with Dave Hause across the UK and Europe late last year, Matt joins the shrapnel-throated Hot Water Music vocalist Chuck Ragan for his 'Overseas Till Midnight' tour. They'll take in a string of German and UK dates in May/June, with brief Italian and Austrian stops along the way. Northcote will dip into last year's self-titled album, released by Xtra Mile Recordings, for eloquent blasts of refined yet raw Americana. All dates are below.

To whet the appetite, Northcote has also unveiled the first instalment of 'The Lowville Sessions' live set with this performance of 'Drive Me Home'. Further episodes of this beautifully filmed session will be revealed in the coming weeks.
