The Luka State, one of the UK’s most exciting up and coming rock and roll bands, today announce their first ever virtual UK tour. The tour will kick off on January 8th and culminate in a show on the 23rd January and sees them collaborate with some of the UK music industry’s finest concert promoters. The full list is below and fans can get free tickets to each live stream. The tour leads into the release of their debut album, Fall In Fall Out, on 29th January 2021.
Speaking of how the virtual tour came about, Frontman Conrad Ellis has said “We’ve had some really special promoters behind us in our career so far to get up to this point. We’re sick of sitting at home twiddling our thumbs and doing nothing at all so we thought it was about time we did something a bit different and special and gave everyone a show to remember. It’s going to be rough and raw, which is just what we all need to be honest. I just hope everyone enjoys it as much as we will performing it.”
Hailing from Winsford, close to Manchester and Liverpool, the four-piece are excited to bring their live show to their fans, albeit virtually. This virtual tour will see the band step up from their live-streamed launch show and collaborate with some exciting brands and partners with exciting surprises in store.
Coinciding with the announcement of the virtual tour, the group have also revealed a live video for current single Feel It, which you can watch here. The video was shot live at legendary London venue The Lexington, the climax of a 12 month period seeing the band play 68 shows across the country. The Lexington was their second sell out show in London, with the four-piece packing out The Grace just a few weeks prior. The video shows the energetic performance with Conrad saying “It’s mad man. We did 68 shows building up to The Lexington and then the whole world just paused. We count ourselves lucky to be honest. We actually got to complete all the dates we had in the diary.“
The band recently announced that they had signed to Shelter Records / BMG and revealed that Fall In Fall Out can be preordered here and it will be available on CD, Vinyl and at all digital platforms. They also revealed the brand new video for single Feel It, watch here. The rip-roaring track was mixed by writer/producer Tarek Musa (Circa Waves, The Big Moon) and perfectly showcases frontman Conrad Ellis’ gritty, soaring vocals and the band’s raw energy.
Despite not having the chance to play their latest releases live, they have amassed over 6 million Spotify streams over lockdown while continuing to gain nearly half a million streams each month. They have also recently been added to Spotify’s ‘Best Rock Songs of 2020’ playlist. This is no mean feat for an independent band, so it’s no wonder that Shelter/BMG jumped at the chance to sign them.
