Every so often it's nice to offer a helping hand the way of the up-and-coming; after all, without tomorrow's rock and rollers, what a boring future we're faced with. So, with this in mind, here's news of a tour organised by new(ish) label Signature Tune.
The brainchild of former Play Dead 'zine creator Marc Bird, plus associates, Signature Tune has already released great records by Caterpillar Ghost (featuring a member of a certain Jeniferever) and Shots Fired. This week three bands of their choosing hit the road for a few shows, and we recommend your attendance. Do see below for dates, et cetera.
