Touchstone And The Reasoning Take On Europe!
Rising Brit prog rock bands Touchstone and The Reasoning have combined forces for a co-headline tour of Europe later this year.
The 10-date Adventures In The City tour unites the two bands as The Reasoning prepare their new studio album Adventures In Neverland for September 2012, and Touchstone celebrate the release of their back catalogue and new album The City Sleeps, which entered the UK rock charts at Number 36 on its release at the end of 2011. It will also mark an important year for the bands, having both recently signed new record deals (Touchstone with German label SPV/Steamhammer and The Reasoning with Cherry Red’s dynamic front-line label Esoteric Antenna).
The bands will play:
Poppodium W2 Den Bosch Netherlands 27/09
Poppodium Nieuwe Nor Heerlen Netherlands 28/09
Dru Cultuurfabriek Ulft Netherlands 29/09
Bergkeller Reichenbach Germany 30/09
Logo Hamburg Germany 1/10
The Garage London 12/10
The Globe Cardiff 14/10
The Robin 2 Bilston 15/10
The Duchess York 16/10
The two bands are excited to be heading out on the road together for what will be their biggest headline tour yet.
“It’s been nearly half a decade since the last time we shared a stage with The Reasoning,” explains Touchstone guitarist Adam Hodgson. “Getting to play out in Europe properly as well as in the UK with some great friends will be amazing.”
The Reasoning’s bassist Matt Cohen comments: “Touchstone and The Reasoning have developed so much as artists over the years so the versions you see today are lean, mean rocking machines with more fire and drive than ever before. We are going to bring you one hell of a gig experience! The New Avengers of Prog are coming to a city near you in 2012 so join the adventure!”
Tickets for UK shows are on sale from Wednesday 16 May.
