THE WILDHEARTS have announced the release of their first new alum in ten years. And they'll be touring the UK in support of it.
The aptly-titled Renaissance Men is set for release on Friday 3 May, with the classic line-up of the band - Ginger, CJ, Ritchie and Danny - taking to the road that night, playing the first of eight shows in Manchester.
“Well fuck me it's only been 10 years since our last release and we have a monster album on its way," exclaims CJ. "Danny is back in the band and we hit the road in May, playing new tunes and all the old hits. Can't wait and I know the boys are super bloody excited for this. ROCK!”
