Alongside taking part in the Planet Rock Rocktober tour and being the supporting card for King King once again, The Damn Truth are squeezing in a number of their own headline shows during their forthcoming return to the UK – the first being a date in Norwich.
The Montreal rockers will be at the Waterfront Studio on Tuesday, October 18, as they bid to build on an already burgeoning reputation.
“We’re looking forward to touring the UK,” says lead singer and guitarist Lee-la Baum.
“Last time we played the UK was earlier this year when we supported King King on their February tour.
“We had a fantastic time, and we can’t wait to return for more fun and excitement. UK audiences are the best.”
The Damn Truth have also opened for the likes of ZZ Top, Styx and Rival Sons.
Six tracks on their latest album Now Or Nowhere were produced by Bob Rock, who has worked with something of a who’s-who of classic acts during his career.
Jeff Laufer, of the Rock Bands Of LA site, said: “The Damn Truth are a fresh revivalism of the psych music scene from the mid-60s.
“Rock found a spirit within the band that he hadn’t experienced for many years. He saw something special … an artist with burning talent that needed the right direction to break wide open … like lightning in a bottle.”
