Wille & The Bandits announce 2019 tour dates ahead of new album release


Wille & The Bandits will release their new album ‘Paths’ on Friday February 1 2019 which will see the trio head out on tour in January 2019.

Following the release of their latest single ‘Find My Way’, Willie & The Bandits have announced a huge UK tour which will see the band perform at Oxford’s O2 Academy March 29.

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.

Wille Edwards, lead vocals, guitars, said: “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.”

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 60’s and 70’s and mix Rock and Roll with a more modern approach, combining elements of world music, dance music and hip-hop creating something truly unique.
