Goldray announce winter UK tour dates

Goldray have announced a UK winter tour.

The band featuring former Reef guitarist Kenwyn House have lined up a total of six shows, culminating with a set at the HRH Prog 7 Festival in Pwllheli on November 17.

The band released their debut album Rising in May 2017 and are currently working on the follow-up, which is scheduled to arrive in the spring of 2019.

The first material from the as-yet-untitled record is expected to debut next month, with further details to be revealed in due course.

Speaking with Prog last year, House spoke about the band’s eye-catching image, saying: “If you look at the great bands from the era we love, they’re all wearing capes and stabbing their keyboards with kitchen knives.

“It’s got to have a visual side or you’re missing a big chunk of the story. If you’re an artist, you need to embrace the role. It needs to be magical. No one wants to see normal.”
