Having introduced themselves to UK audiences late last year with two intimate club shows and the 'Nothing But Our Love' EP, Detroit's Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. return to these shores in February to build on their growing reputation. They will follow a five date tour with the February 27th release of the single 'Morning Thought' on Warner Bros. Records.
Their tour includes three London shows as well as their first dates out of the capital in Manchester and Nottingham. Their UK tour schedule is:
15th - London, XOYO (NME club night headlined by Band Of Skulls)
16th - Manchester, The Castle (BETA club night)
18th - Nottingham, The Rescue Rooms (Stealth vs. Rescued club night)
Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. were formed in 2009 when Josh Epstein contacted Daniel Zott after seeing him play a show in Detroit at which he was impressed by the performance, songwriting and charisma he had witnessed on stage. A musician himself, Epstein recognised his style wasn't entirely similar to Zott's, but felt their two differing headspaces would form an interesting combination. Even though they were both fairly busy with other musical endeavours at the time, he suggested they join forces and attempt something together.
Subsequently signed to Warner Bros. Records, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. released 'It's A Corporate World' in North America to a plethora of positive reviews. The album will receive a full UK release in May ahead of several summer festival dates.
