Jake Bugg First 2013 tour dates announced

Jake Bugg, the fast-rising hitmaker from Nottingham has announced a new set of dates, his first for 2013. This will be his biggest UK headline tour so far, and will follow his forthcoming sell-out autumn tour, as well as dates in Europe and the US with Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and Snow Patrol.

“Jake Bugg”, his eponymously-titles debut album, is released 15th October alongside the new single “Two Fingers”. His debut album is 14 songs, clocking in at under 40 minutes, that belie his eighteen years. Sharp, observant and honest, they inhabit a world no other new UK act is currently operating in. It opens with recent single “Lightning Bolt”, a scorching blues number with his Telecaster to the fore. New single “Two Fingers” follows with its swaggering chorus, whilst the likes of “Country Song” and “Broken” are more reflective. It’s a perfectly paced record, one that marks out Jake as the most exciting new UK act of 2012 and manages to effortlessly straddle the gap between authenticity and mainstream appeal. He counts Noel Gallagher, Lily Allen, Elton John, Chris Martin, Damon Albarn and Snow Patrol amongst his fans and has supported Michael Kiwanuka, Example and Lana Del Rey.
