It should be a belting night at the Brickmakers in Norwich next week when a trio of bands all linked to The Wildhearts bring their “three-pronged attack” to the city.
Electronic rockers Grand Theft Audio will be including tracks from new album Pass Me The Conch alongside classics such as We Love U and Stoopid Ass.
There’ll be raw and melodic punk from Scott Sorry, and the bill will also include a set from CJ Wildheart.
“This isn’t a tour – it’s a three-pronged attack from the aural world war three,” said Grand Theft Audio frontman Jay Butler.
Fellow GTA founding member (and Wildhearts drummer) Ritch Battersby added: “It’s been way too long since CJ and I shared the stage with Scott. To say I’m excited is a massive understatement – old friends, new songs and emotional reunions.”
And former Wildhearts bassist Sorry said: “We couldn’t be happier to get back to the UK. It’s a second home for me and I’ve truly missed all our friends and fans. Hitting the road with CJ and Ritch is incredible. At one point I thought we’d never be on tour together again. This is by all means a dream come true.”
The show on Monday, September 19, is likely to conclude with all three Wildhearts alumni on stage together for an encore.
CJ said: “The last time I toured solo was back in 2017 and to be out again this September is amazing and long overdue.
“What’s even better is Ritchie and Scott are both bringing their bands along, too, and I never thought the three of us would be on tour again. It’s so cool.
“This is a tour we will never forget.”
