Sunset Sons have announced details of an eight-date headline tour of the UK’s major cities in March 2015. The hotly-tipped Anglo-Aussie four piece will kick things off in Manchester on March 6th and run through til March 14th, taking in London’s Dingwalls on the 11th.
Sunset Sons were today revealed as one of the 15 acts on the prestigious BBC Sound of 2015 shortlist. They are also one of MTV Brand New’s tips for next year. Quite a journey for the four surfing-mad musicians from Hossegor who began their year playing to their dedicated community of fans in the Alps and end it firmly established as one of the bands to watch for 2015. The release of their ‘No Bad Days EP’ on Polydor in November – which followed up their self-released debut Le Surfing EP earlier in the year – brought them to the attention of the wider world and gained them champions at Radio One (Introducing and In New Music We Trust playlists), Absolute (C list) and XFM (Daytime playlist/Record of the Week).
Currently writing their upcoming debut in the idyllic French surf commune of Hossegor, Sunset Sons are a band brought together by a love of two things; music and surfing. Originally formed as a covers band to tour the Alps for a little cash (and some free beers), Sunset Sons learned their craft and became the tightest live band on the circuit.
