Wille & The Bandits have rescheduled the rest of their UK tour to July to November 2020. The band features a brand-new line up, further increasing their immense and immersive sound by moving from a trio to a four piece. The band will now feature screaming Hammond organ and second guitar as well as 3-way vocal harmonies. Wille will be joined by Finn McAuley (drums, percussion), Harry Mackaill (bass, ukulele, vocals) and Matthew Gallagher (keyboards, guitars, percussion, vocals). All three are impressive musicians who have honed their craft with dedication and have been selected for their enthusiasms and songwriting sensibilities.
While the UK is on lockdown Wille Edwards has set himself the goal to write a song a week, which he will release each Sunday during his “Wille’s Sunday Sounds” on the bands Facebook page and website.
Fans of the band that have followed the progression of tracks such as “Angel” are used to witnessing the evolution of individual songs as they become ever more mesmerising, and they can expect to hear the classic tracks venturing into Pink Floyd influenced landscapes and Led Zeppelin-esque riffs to take the listener on a deeper musical journey.
The band will be touring the latest album Paths, which encapsulates the excitement and gusto of rock and roll. The album is a breath of fresh air for music lovers trapped in Spotify’s spoon-feeding algorithms and radio’s set menu playlists; challenging the listener, while embracing the technology and instrumental possibilities that are afforded to musicians in current times. Special guest on the tour will be Troy Redfern.
