Swiftly following the release of his upcoming debut EP ‘This Is A Nightmare’, Jack Valero and his full live band will be hitting the road for a succession of shows in Liverpool, Manchester, Glasgow, and Sheffield, between 13th-20th October. Jack will also headline London’s The Grace on 1st December. Full details below.
Since signing to Modern Sky UK (Lottery Winners, Slow Readers Club, Jamie Webster), London born, Brighton based, Jack Valero has hit the ground running this year. His recent singles “Temporary Helplessness”, “Pull Back The Hammer” and “Catch My Soul” have powered up with a bigger live sound infusing classic, old school British song-writing with a timeless American rock sound creating a transatlantic indie-rock mash-up without losing any of the astute, poetic lyricism of his initial releases – a sound he’s been perfecting at recent sets at festivals like SXSW in Austin, Glastonbury and Kendal Calling.
Bringing that energy to venues across the UK this Autumn, tickets for all of Jack Valero’s headline dates will go on sale this Wednesday @ 10AM here: https://linktr.ee/JackValero
With the release of the EP just around the corner, Jack has recently shared the single “Catch My Soul’ with the title track ‘This Is A Nightmare’ to follow in Sept.
It’s a track that goes in hard-and-heavy with a rush of ragged blues and timeless rock ‘n’ roll at full throttle. With a retro style that’s matched with a freshness of intensity, Jack’s prominent vocal leads the charge and holds nothing back. Speaking about “Catch My Soul”, Jack says:
“This song is about a more reckless time of my life when I was going out too much and doing too much. The idea of Catch My Soul is delving into the desperate point when I felt like it was taking over and I needed someone to ‘catch my soul’ and save me before it was too late.”
Jack’s band, completed by guitarist Erik Litstrom, will be out on the road throughout the rest of the year. With festival sets, support shows with Tom A. Smith, and their first headline shows under the Jack Valero moniker – catch the band at these dates with more to be announced soon:
