Scoundrels Announce The Kooks Support Tour!

| On 14, Sep 2011


London band Scoundrels, release ‘Loud n Proud’ on Monday 10th October 2011. This is the second single to be taken from their self-titled debut album which was released on the recently revived Blue Horizon label.
‘Loud n Proud’ was the song that caught the attention of producer, CC Adcock. So much so that he flew to London to get a feel for the band and work on the track before they headed to the States to record the rest of the album.
Lead singer Ned Wyndham remembers it well:
“CC pushed the preamps so hard whilst recording that they set on fire, but it was that lo-fi, garage rock sound that he wanted to capture which I think he did brilliantly. Vocals were laid down at Studio In The Country, Bogalusa, Louisiana and the song came together really nicely.
“The track is really an anti-scenester song, anti-elitism, anti-conformity in any way, anti- posers and all about enjoying music and not caring if it’s in vogue or not. Whether it’s Chris de Burgh, Kenny G or Timmy Mallet, as long as it strikes a chord with you then that’s cool.”
The video for Loud n Proud is a paired down version of a documentary film of their time in the States entitled ‘Go Sell Your Soul’ filmed by Wyatt Garfield in association with Pulse Films (‘No Distance Left To Run’, Blur: Live at Hyde Park).
After a summer of festivals and a sell-out residency at Ronnie Scott’s the band are heading to America in October for their first US dates on the East Coast.

They will be supporting The Kooks at four dates on their upcoming tour in October: 

7th October – Portsmouth Guildhall
8th October – Birmingham Academy
9th October – Leeds Academy
11th October – Brixton Academy
