Mamas Gun Announce June UK Tour & New album: Golden Days

Mamas Gun have announced news of a 4-date headline UK tour, beginning at The Jam House, Birmingham on June 21, 2018 and finishing at the Omeara, London on June 29, 2018 – tickets for all dates are available via the link below. The dates arrive as part of a wider world tour in support of the band’s forthcoming album, Golden Days which is due for release on May 18, 2018 via Candelion – you can see the video for the new single, ‘You Make My Life A Better Place’ below, proving that Mamas Gun have a refreshing lack of pretension.

‘You Make My Life A Better Place’ follows in the footsteps of the Lauren Laverne-supported ‘London Girls’ and the Earmilk and Indie Shuffle-approved ‘Strangers On A Street’. The new album, Golden Days itself chronicles the band’s decade-long journey to date with Platts and the rest of the band taking production duties into their own hands, recording the tracks live using analogue equipment. Notable contributions are littered throughout the album with the likes of Shawn Lee (Jeff Buckley, Kelis, St Etienne) assisting on the album’s mix, and songwriters Connor Reeves (Tina Turner, Joss Stone) and Christopher Braide (Sia, Lana Del Rey) lending hands.



Alongside the likes of Charles Bradley, Curtis Harding and the Dap Kings, Mamas Gun have helped fuel the vanguard of 21st century soul, as well as spawning Top 10 hits on four continents. In addition to securing support slots with the likes of Beverley Knight and Raphael Saadiq, Mamas Gun have performed at global and domestic music festivals including WOMAD, Secret Garden Party, Wilderness and Greenroom with their forthcoming UK tour arriving after an intimate sell-out return in London.
