Vennart reveals tour dates

Mike Vennart has confirmed a five-date solo tour for May this year.

It’s in support of the former Oceansize frontman’s debut solo album, simply called Vennart.

He recently launched a crowdfunding campaign for the release, explaining: “I’ve made a record that’s not far removed from what Oceansize was – and I’m okay with that.”

Vennart appears in the latest edition of Prog, on sale now, also featuring Marillion, Van der Graaf Generator, Nightwish, Steve Hackett and more.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
