The New Mendicants - UK & Irish Dates Start 7th July 2013 To Co-incide With 'Australia 2013' Ep

Finding himself newly resident of Toronto, Ontario last year, Norman Blake was re-introduced to local Joe Pernicecare of Pernice Brothers drummer Patrick Berkley - both having worked with Norwegian band, I Was A King in 2012.
 
A rendezvous swiftly arranged, 'Within minutes of hanging out in my kitchen we were booking recording dates' says Joe, the pair making their live debut with low-key public performances in a Toronto tavern - shows marked by plenty of banter, open-tunings and sublime pop smarts.
 
Joined by Mike Belisky of The Sadies on drums, the band crystalized as The New Mendicants and the trio are currently recording a debut album together for release in early 2014.
 
For now, and by way of an introduction, the 'Australia 2013' EP (One Little Indian, 8th July) boasts three new compositions, an unexpected and lovely INXS cover, and revisits Teenage Fanclub's 'I Don't Want Control Of You'*and The Pernice Brothers 'Amazing Glow'~ for good measure.

TRACKLIST: 1. This Time (Andrew Farriss) 2. Follow You Down (The New Mendicants) 3. High on the Skyline (The New Mendicants) 4. I Don't Want Control Of You (Blake) 5. Amazing Glow (Pernice) 6. Sarasota (The New Mendicants)
 
The New Mendicants bring a two-man show (Norman & Joe) to these shores for live dates in JULY 2013 as follows:
 
7th           Dublin, Whelans 
8th           Cambridge, Cambridge Portland Arms
