Wilson confirm 2016 UK tour

Wilson have announced a UK headlining tour for early next year.

The Detroit rockers play nine dates in the UK, starting in Wolverhampton on February 23. They supported Halestorm on their UK tour and their second album Right To Rise was released earlier this year on Razor & Tie.

Guitarist Jason Spencer says: “While sitting here taking a shit, it hit me exactly how exciting this tour is going to be for both you and us. It will be the perfect blend of fuckery, rock’n’roll, and all round good times”

Frontman Chad Nicefield adds: “We are beside ourselves with excitement to be bringing our stench back across the pond. This will be our first time ever headlining in your neck of the woods and each show is going to feel like the best Friday night on Earth.”

Tickets go on sale at 10am on December 2.
