Sometime Bastille touring sideman Charlie Barnes has announced a full-band UK tour ahead of the release of his sophomore album ‘Oceanography’

‘Oceanography’, his second album for Superball Music is the follow up to 2015’s post-pop monster ‘More Stately Mansions’, finds Barnes in a different place in his life. The past two years have seen huge change for the musician, spending the majority of his time on the road as a touring member of Bastille, performing on some of the biggest stages in the world and travelling all over the globe as well as getting married and relocating from Leeds to the Midlands.

Of the tour, Charlie says “I’m fully blown kid-in-sweetshop excited about these upcoming dates. It’s going to be a little bit different to anything I’ve done before, so expect to see some new faces (well, one new face…), and the occasional support slot from another familiar face (my face, doing something else). These will be my first live performances with a band since my mate Alex’s wedding a couple of years ago where we played a load of (superbly curated) cover versions (Biffy, Wheatus, Bowie…), so I’m definitely feeling the nerves about getting back to frontman duties. It’ll be okay. Right? Come and say hello. We’re very clean.”
