Wille & The Bandits add new dates to their UK Tour in early 2019.

The new dates include Giants of Rock as well as dates in Exeter, Truro and Gloucester. The band also announces that the venue for their show in Newcastle on Friday 22nd March has been moved to The Cluny.

The Cornish three-piece will release their new album “Paths” on Friday 1st February, 2019, encapsulating the excitement and gusto of rock‘n’roll. The album is a breath of fresh air challenging the listener while embracing technology and instrumental possibilities that are afforded to musicians in current times. The new album will be released by Fat Toad Records and distributed by Proper.

“I feel that we have finally managed to capture the various soundscapes and unusual instrumentation of our sound on one album without losing the raw, live energy of WATB”, says Wille Edwards (lead vocals, guitars).

Wille & The Bandits manage to encompass musical diversity which makes their music so appealing. The band adopts the musical essence, nostalgia and discovery of the late 60s and 70s and mix Rock and Roll with a more modern approach, combining elements of world music, dance music and hip-hop creating something truly unique.

“An eclectic blend of our sounds and influences that sums up the musical diversity of the band”, states Andrew Naumann (Beats Master).

Wille & The Bandits toured with bands and musicians such as Deep Purple, Status Quo, Joe Bonamassa, the Jon Butler Trio and Warren Haynes. In 2014 the band was voted in the Top Ten bands to see at Glastonbury. They also played the Isle of Wight festival as well as at the London Olympics, picked to play by being voted one of UK’s best Live acts. Other festival appearances include Boardmasters and several festivals in Europe.
