A touring band has to get used to hours on the road, in hotels and in motorway service stations, but in Neon Waltz’ case, travelling from their base at the most northerly tip of Scotland, it’s a journey that would make other bands weep into their travel pillows. They call Wick home: a beautiful and remote place closer to Norway than London, meaning a gig in Glasgow is a 12 hour round trip. Does 12 hours in a van daunt them? No chance, they go further.
In an exclusive ‘video portrait’ for Gigslutz, fans can follow the six-piece on their most recent, triumphant trek around the nation, which took them on nine-dates from their opening night in Manchester all the way to Southampton, a cool 700 miles from Caithness and the brutal North Sea, via a storming return to London at the Camden Assembly. Clocking up an estimated 2,000 miles in just over a week in their beaten van, Morrison, Neon Waltz could have equally driven to St Petersburg or Athens from London.
Having already extensively toured in support of a handful of singles, including the recently aired ‘Heavy Heartless’, the restless six-piece have chosen a life on the road as they gear up for the release of their debut album, ‘Strange Hymns’, on Fri 18 August 2017 Ignition Records, available to pre-order now via https://neonwaltz.lnk.to/NWSH
