Jake Bugg Announces Autumn 2012 Tour Dates

Taste It EP out now through Mercury Records

Debut album Released 15th October

Jake Bugg, Nottingham's newest hitmaker has announced his eponymously-titled debut album, set for release on 15th October on Mercury Records.

To date Jake has taken the UK by storm. He's been on Radio 1 playlists, supported The Stone Roses at an already legendary secret gig in London and has support dates with Noel Gallagher in the UK and Europe on the horizon, as well as his first trip to the USA in support of Noel and Snow Patrol.

Support has come across the board, from the NME, Clash, The Fly, i-D, The Observer, Independent On Sunday, The Sun, The Daily Star and more. He is a unique artist right now, a working class kid with an acoustic guitar set to take the world by storm with his perfectly poised songs about growing up and his hometown of Nottingham. It's an old fashioned approach that is paying rich dividends. To date he has had a phenomenal five Record Of The Weeks on Radio 1 with massive support across the board from Zane Lowe, Fearne Cotton, Greg James and Huw Stephens. His debut TV performance on Later with Jools Holland was a special moment.

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.
