TOUTS Announce Headline Belfast Show @ McHughs Basement Bar, Thursday August 16th

Derry three piece Punk band, TOUTS are pleased to announce a headline Belfast show at McHughs Basement Bar on Thursday, August 16th 2018. Touts released their highly-anticipated second EP LIT, on 10 November 2017 via Hometown Records and the new single, ‘Asleep’ was released earlier this year’

Speaking of the new single, Touts said: “We don’t lead structured lives. Sometimes you just have to laugh at how ridiculous things can get. It’s just like we’re in Grand Theft Auto or a dream. Days just merge into each other and you don’t know what the fuck is happening”.

Despite only releasing their debut single Sold Out last year, TOUTS have already caused something of a stir on the UK indie scene, after playing a series of high profile support slots with Liam Gallagher, Kasabian and Paul Weller. The band also completed a hugely successful, frenetic whirlwind of a debut headline tour, ‘the electric shock excitement of a band on fire’ (Louder Than War) where they took their politically-charged punk songs across the UK, to rapturous feedback.

TOUTS have already attracted great support across radio, with their previous singles receiving consistent plays from industry tastemakers, including Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, Steve Lamacq, Daniel P. Carter and Huw Stephens, with the latter inviting the band in for a live session on his Radio 1 show.
