Breakout UK four-piece rock band SLYDIGS announce debut North American tour dates opening for THE WHO in Canada and the U.S. starting April 26th in Toronto, Ontario and finishing in San Diego,California.
On the heels of an already successful European tour with Vintage Trouble at the end of 2015, garnering accolades for their 5-track EP “Down with Mockery”, the band are ready to introduce American and Canadian audiences to their mixture of 60’s British invasion, 70’s punk and 90’s guitar driven Britpop.
SLYDIGS’ brand of bluesy/hook-laden rock is showcased via “Light the Fuse”, a hard driving rock song that features lead singer Dean Fairhurst’s authentic vocal delivery. The single is featured in ROCK BAND 4 and the EP was helmed by producer/engineer George Shilling (Blur, Oasis, The Soup Dragons).
The band’s momentum can be traced to the buzz surrounding their live shows and the sold out gigs withVintage Trouble. While on tour, they performed a full concert for acclaimed German TV show Rockpalast, along with an exclusive acoustic version of forthcoming track “Catch a Fading Light.” Slydigs also supported THE WHO on multiple shows in the UK, including the sold-out London O2 Arena dates and the 2015 Hyde Park anniversary concert.
SLYDIGS is comprised of members Dean Fairhurst (vocals/rhythm guitar), Louis Menguy (lead guitar/backing vocals), Peter Fleming (drums) and Ben Breslin (bass/backing vocals) who proudly tout their northern British roots.Lead guitarist Louis Menguy, now an ambassador for Orange Amplifiers, will be using the AD30TC amps on the tour.
