In 2015 The Humans will not only begin recording their fourth album but embark on a UK tour of six confirmed dates.
Telling Strange Tales will kick off on 11 April 2015 at Trading Boundaries, Uckfield and close at The Britannia Theatre, Chatham on 19 April. It will also include the first London gig by The Humans since the Sugar Rush concert at Bush Hall in 2011. Most notably this London club date is at the 100 Club, Oxford Street which Toyah last played some 36 years ago as an unsigned emerging music act.
The Humans is of course the transatlantic three-piece rock band which comprises Toyah Willcox, Bill Rieflin and Chris Wong. Bill Rieflin recently completed a series of live US concert dates as a member of the King Crimson. They will be aided and abetted in these live concerts by returning live guest human Igor Abuladze and for this tour by Tim Rose. Alongside Wong, Tim Rose has played in Toyah’s live touring band since 2005.
The tour will see the first UK live performances of material from 2014’s Strange Tales album which was met with much praise from fans old and new. Get In Your Car and Amnesia have already become firm favourites. It with delight that we are also able to announce a hard copy CD pressing of the Strange Tales album will be available exclusively at the gigs.
