BEFORE BREAKFAST have announced they will be touring their debut album ‘I Could Be Asleep If It Weren’t For You’, which came out in January. The Sheffield duo and two new live band members will be joining Mercury-nominated Scottish composer and musician C Duncan for five UK dates, which includes London’s Powerhaus on 19th May, and headlining six of their own dates throughout May and June.
“The last tour we had booked was supposed to be happening just as the first lockdown was announced in 2020 so we absolutely cannot wait to get back out there, it’s been too long. Our album has been waiting to be released for years, so finally getting the chance to show it off around the country feels like a relief, I think we might just just regress to giddy children tbh. The 2019 tour with C Duncan was so incredibly special, we are thrilled to be joining them again on their 2022 tour alongside our own shows. How many bands get asked to support on tour twice?! Lucky us!” – Before Breakfast
Gina Walters and Lucy Revis fuse their classical knowledge and rich arrangements with raw expression and layer this with personal storytelling that explores feminist themes. The result is a spell-binding collection of songs knitting together Lucy’s intricate cello with Gina’s expressively haunting vocals.
Last summer the band returned to the stage to play Latitude, Tramlines and Deer Shed Festival, and they will be announcing more live dates soon.
