Fast-rising Carlisle youngsters HARDWICKE CIRCUS are heading out for a tour of the South-East at the end of the month.
The six-piece, who've recently been taken under the wing of pub-rock pioneer and Stiff Records founder Dave Robinson, have just been in ex-Vibrator Pat Collier's Perivale Studio recording a new EP with the legendary Terry Edwards (Higsons, Gallon Drunk, NJE) in the producer's chair.
"We have been looking forward to getting to grips with the South Coast for a good while to bring our Carlisle music down to the sea," says frontman Jonny Foster.
"This tour will be great for The Hardwickes," adds Robinson. "Playing a lot of dates in Kent and the South Coast will show them off big time."
