Singer/songwriter Rob Lynch has been announced as main support to California acoustic duo This Wild Life on their forthcoming tour of the UK in September / October. A clutch of his previously announced headline dates will be rescheduled but some of these, including the free entry album release show at the Monarch in London on 22ndSeptember, will be going ahead as planned. See below for details.
Rob recently announced his next single 'Whiskey'. The track is taken from his forthcoming debut album 'All These Nights In Bars Will Somehow Save My Soul' which will be released through Xtra Mile Recordings on 22ndSeptember.
"This is a song about a night my father and I had together where we drank too much whiskey and played each other our favourite songs," Rob says of the emotional track."He died when I was 21, and when I first went to visit him in hospital, I was walking down the corridor towards his ward and I could hear him telling the other patients around him the story about that night we had."
