The Kris Barras Band have announced a UK tour for September, and launched a new video for Stitch Me Up. The track is taken from the band's album The Divine And The Dirty, which was released in March. 

"This is a track that I love to play live and it was great to use footage from our Divine and Dirty tour to make the video," says Barras. "Although it’s different when it comes to my music, I actually don’t take myself too seriously. There’s plenty of backstage moments captured in this vid where I’m pissing about! We had great fun on the tour and I think this video sums it up well."

Barras will be headlining London's Borderline on June 20, before joining Supersonic Blues Machine as singer/guitarist alongside ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons as they tour Europe in July

The Kris Barras Band have also announced a series of of dates for late summer. The trek kicks off in Exeter on September 7, and climaxes with a show at the Kent Blues Collective Festival in Gillingham on the 29th. Tickets are on sale now
