Embarking on a seven-date tour, Deaf Havana are back – starting at the O2 Academy in Bournemouth on the 14th of December. Their alternative style rock music has helped build a large fanbase in the 9 years since, after forming at college in Norfolk. Also visiting Falmouth, Exeter, Coventry, Blackburn, Middlesbrough and Lincoln, deciding to play at venues they’d rarely visited could be seen as a risk, however the crowds they attract will yield a huge turnout in all venues.
Their sound has evolved and matured over the years, with a more traditional rock-and-roll feel to their newer music. Their latest album Old Souls brought the band their first top 10 album in early October 2013. Spearheaded with ‘Mildred’, the album has been their most successful to date hence their second subsequent tour after its release.
The band will be touring with Lonely the Brave, who have in recent months received a sizeable amount of airtime on radio, most notably with support from Zane Lowe, which correlates to their increase in popularity throughout the year. The combination of their melodic music and the incredibly emotive vocals from singer David Jakes produce a hard-hitting, but memorable record. After their big break performing on the BBC Introducing stage at Reading & Leeds last year, the group released their debut album The Days War in September of this year. Verses will also be supporting.
