The Scarlet Rebels tour that gets under way this week will be passing through Norwich later in the month.

The Welsh rockers will be promoting their latest album, See Through Blue, which has smashed its way into the Top 10 albums chart and garnered rave reviews.

“It’s absolutely and totally beyond our wildest dreams,” said frontman Wayne Doyle.

“The aim was for a Top 40 and to be the first band from Llanelli to ever make it… To end up at No 7 is just mind-blowing. The support we’ve had has been unreal.

“To all those who have supported us, we can’t wait to celebrate with you in person on tour.”

Scarlet Rebels will be at the Brickmakers B2 on Friday, March 25, where you can expect to hear some hard-hitting political statements from the quintet who’ve made no secret of their views on the social challenges facing society.

“I don’t expect everybody to agree with me, but these are things that have happened, they’re facts,” said Doyle.

“If people don’t want to listen, that’s tough. But the artists I grew up with talked about real issues, about what was going on, regardless of what people thought of them.

“We could have made an album full of sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll, but we wanted something real.”

Scarlet Rebels are using the tour to support food banks, and are encouraging their fans to bring along some donations. To find out what items will be particularly welcomed at the show, click here.

Meanwhile, they’ll be back in Norfolk later this year for the HRH 15 festival in Yarmouth.
