After leaving a streak of rip-roaring, celebratory shows in 2016, road-testing his back catalogue of 12 albums, Nick Harper & The Wilderness Kids (Reuben, Jacob, and Isaac of Port Erin & Wasuremono) are back with a new album Lies! Lies! Lies! and UK tour for 2017.
Amidst a backdrop of flags being changed and mottos applied, ''350 million reasons why, written on the side of the bus'', sees Nick and The Kids nailing their colours to the mast and ready to roll.
The album was recorded in Studio La Fabrique, France (Radiohead- Moon Shaped Pool, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds-Push the Sky Away) with the legendary producer Tchad Blake (The Black Keys, Pearl Jam, T-Bone, Peter Gabriel). Blake brings his masterful touch to the unceasingly creative cauldron of Nick, his songs and now, his band.
Fans can grab first copies of the upcoming album at the gigs on CD or LP from November 24th, in the commercial hubris of Black Friday. Initial pressings can be snatched up on the Lies! Lies! Lies! tour with a general UK release on December 1st.
