Touring in support of their debut album Just Before The World Starts Burning, which is available now on Xtra Mile Recordings), the live dates will be the first as a band outside of their usual day jobs of touring with Frank Turner.

Kicking off in Glasgow on 23 January 2024, the tour will see stops in Nottingham, Manchester, Bristol and London, and will see The Sleeping Souls accompanied by co-headliner Sean McGowan and his full band.

The tour announcement also follows the release of their single Rivals. Best known as Frank Turner’s loyal band mates and dedicated road warriors, Rivals is The Sleeping Souls’ third single to date and is plucked from the band’s debut album Just Before The World Starts Burning.

The Sleeping Souls have toured alongside Frank Turner for over a decade, having previously recorded six studio albums with the punk icon, including 2022 number one FTHC. They’ve headlined Wembley Arena, performed at the 2012 London Olympics and played across the world many times over.

The Sleeping Souls comprise Tarrant Anderson (bass), Matt Nasir (piano), Callum Green (drums), Ben Lloyd (guitar). They are joined by fellow road warrior Cahir O’Doherty (Fighting With Wire, Jetplane Landing and currently New Pagans) who has filled in previously for Frank on guitar, as well as Tarrant and Ben at different times. The band has decided now is time to branch out with their own independent project.
