Hamell On Trial Announces July 2014 UK Tour

Ahead of his upcoming album The Happiest Man In The World, folk-punk provocateur Hamell On Trial triumphantly announces a full UK tour for July 2014.
 
His live show see's Hamell armed to the teeth, with a battered 1937 Gibson acoustic guitar he strums like a machine gun, a politically astute mind that can't stop moving and a mouth that can be profane one minute and profound the next. His performances invoke thoughts of the great rebellious comedians and social commentators of the past: Lenny Bruce, Bill Hicks, and even a bit of Sam Kinison. See Hamell On Trial's punk-rock bomb detonate all over the unsuspecting folk singer-songwriter world at the tour dates listed below.
 
His ninth album, The Happiest Man In The World, will be released June 2nd and sees Hamell still as uncompromising, fearless, insightful, absurd, hysterical and as poignant as he was when he descended upon the music world with his debut 25 years ago. The LP is chock full of Hamell's biting wit, rapid fire strumming, motor mouth rants, and comedic one-liners and features collaborations with Kimya Dawson of The Moldy Peaches and long-time friend and mentor Ani DiFranco.

The musical alias of New York-based anti-folk hero Ed Hamell, Hamell On Trial is a one-man punk band that plays loud, fast music informed by politics, passion, energy and intelligence. His caustic tongue and devil-may-care attitude has long been a favourite of anti-establishment musical icons Henry Rollins and DiFranco and the critical elite and incited Rolling Stone to call him "bald, bold and superbad" and described his signature sound as "attack-dog protest folk and ferocious staccato strumming (think Husker Du on Folkways Records)."
