Living In Extraordinary Times Tour – Spring 2019

4th December 2018

“Hi everyone, welcome to the next James tour. March 2019.

This is officially the ‘Living In Extraordinary Times’ tour. So expect plenty of the last album. But also something a little different. We will be supporting ourselves acoustically. So your evening starts low key and informal. A short interval and then a full on bells and whistles electric set.

As always, thanks for your support and see you in March.”—Jim

We’re having a fan pre-sale—including VIP Soundcheck packages—this Thursday 6th December at 9:30am. To take part in this you need to register via the web shop landing page here.

You’ll then receive an email with the pre-sale link and code from the shop. You can also get a code immediately by purchasing something from the lovely new tour range unveiled tonight!

Today we premiere the live video for our brand new single Many Faces.

This was filmed at the Victoria Theatre in Halifax on the ‘Better Than That’ Tour of the UK in May. It was the fourth time the yet-to-be-released song had been played, by which point it had already become a fan favourite at the shows.

Enjoy, and spread the word—as well as the sentiment.
