Jaws to join The Enemy + The Twang for December Tour

Fresh from their performances at London’s “British Summer Time” in Hyde Park, The Enemy and The Twang join forces to announce details of a 12 date UK Christmas tour. The line-up for the upcoming live shows now gets even better with the addition of very special guests, JAWS. The hotly-tipped, Birmingham four-piece have smashed the local Digbeth ‘B-Town’ scene alongside fellow Brummie bands Peace and Swim Deep, and are now making waves outside of their hometown with support from the likes of BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and their tracks featuring on national TV shows, Made In Chelsea and Match Of The Day.

JAWS frontman Connor Schofield said on being added to the line-up: "We're super happy to be a part of the tour. It’s going to be fun to play in places we've never been and try to win over some new fans. Looking forward to it! "

Phil Ettheridge, The Twang, praised JAWS’ debut album, ‘Be Slowly’, adding: “One of my most played records this year... if you haven't heard ‘em yet, you're about to discover your new favourite band.”

Kicking off in Bristol on Thursday 4th December, the Midlands boys will finish the tour with what will be THE party of 2014 at Birmingham’s O2 Academy on Saturday 20th December.

Three young musicians who are in it for their love of music, their latest mini-EP ‘Magic’ is their first new material in over two years as they head towards releasing album number four later this year.

This is the perfect way to round off a great year of touring and a good opportunity for us to prepare for the next chapter of music next year” says The Enemy’s Tom Clarke.

The Twang continue their triumphant return to form with their brand new fourth album “NEONTWANG” which was released earlier this year. The core trio of Phil Etheridge, Saunders and bass player Jon Watkin remain, with the creative additions of drummer Ash Sheehan and new writing partner and guitarist, Jon ‘Simmo’ Simcox.

We’re really looking forward to getting back out on the road” says Phil Ettheridge. “Playing shows is what we’re all about… It’s gonna be chaos… organised chaos!

Their debut record, ‘Love It When I Feel This’ (2007) clocking in excess of 200,000 sales and hit #3 in the album charts, featured hits “Either Way” and “Wide Awake”. Their second album, ‘Jewellery Quarter’ (2009) delivered fan favourite, “Barney Rubble” and their third “10:
