Veterans Dare will be bringing their brand of classic rock to the region when they stop off in Bury St Edmunds.

The tour is in support of latest record Road To Eden, which is their 10th studio release.

The album veers more towards hard rock than their previous releases, but without losing the band’s trademark melodic anthems.

 “We wanted to write an album that translated well to live performance,” says lead singer and producer Darren Wharton (ex-Thin Lizzy).

“Road To Eden has some great anthems, energy and power. We can’t wait to play the new songs live.”

As well as their UK dates, Dare will be touring in Germany, Spain and Scandinavia.

Support for the Bury show – which is on Thursday, October 13 – will come from Troy Redfern, who played in Norwich earlier this year alongside When Rivers Meet.

It’ll give Redfern the opportunity to play tracks from his latest album The Wings Of Salvation, which is released in late September. It contains the singles Come On, Gasoline and Sweet Carolina, and his new material is already being featured on rock-radio playlists.

“My goal was to make a record that was a true representation of where I am right now as an artist,” says Redfern, who had previously released six albums in less than two years.

“I wanted to create something in the spirit of the old school classic rock albums that I grew up listening to.

“I wrote the new album from scratch in just under five weeks, in the same way that the bands that I grew up listening to used to do.

“It makes everything fresh and immediate. It’s an accurate snapshot of where you are as an artist at that moment.”
