Larkins have announced an extensive 16-date UK headline tour running through October and November 2019. Tickets go on sale at 9am Friday May 17th via larkinsband.com
The announcement comes ahead of Larkins largest London headline show to date, where they will play Dingwalls on June 19th. Tickets are available now via TicketWeb.
Regarding the forthcoming tour frontman Josh Noble says, “The last tour that we set out on was pretty surreal. We knew that ‘TV Dream’ had done well but to travel to places like Glasgow and have hundreds of people dance with us and give us everything for 90 minutes was something that we weren’t prepared for.
“That being said, playing live is literally all we have thought about since playing our last show and we’re excited to bring some new, huge ideas to these shows and try and encapsulate the energy of the last tour with a bigger sound and with even more people. To every single person at every single night thank you in advance, it’s going to be so special.”
This year has seen Larkins make a huge statement as one of the most exciting and in-demand bands to emerge from Manchester in recent times.
The guitar-pop collective released their debut single ‘TV Dream’ on Good Soldier Records to an immense response from both fans and media, quickly clocking up over a million streams. The song proved a radio hit and featured on the playlists of Radio 1, BBC Introducing and Radio X, while the band have also received support from Beats 1.
The release led the band to sell out a landmark hometown show to 2000 rapturous fans at Manchester’s Albert Hall. Capturing the moment perfectly, Larkins release the live album Larkins: Live At The Albert Hall, Manchester. It is available to stream now and can be purchased physically from July 5th on CD, cassette and vinyl.
As an undeniable proven live force Larkins have sold out headline shows across the UK and Europe, and played their first US shows this year at SXSW Festival. The band are currently recording their debut album with producers Dan Nigro (A-Trak, Sky Ferreira, Lewis Capaldi) and Andrew Dawson (Kanye West, Fun, Kid Cudi) – a record which is sure to send Larkins even further into the stratosphere.

Multi-instrumentalist, producer, arranger, mixer and engineer David Baron has released his new single, ‘People of No Concern’ (feat. Lettie & Madeleine) via Here & Now Recordings. Here he collaborates with 11-year-old Madeleine, an avid singer, guitar player and gymnast, and Lettie, a London based singer-songwriter composer who has, since 2008, released three albums with Baron.
David inherited his musical proclivity from his father, Aaron Baron – a renowned remote recording pioneer. He was the man behind Location Recorders, hired to record ‘Stage Fright’ for The Band at the Woodstock Playhouse, and he also recorded BB King, The Allman Brothers Band, Blue Oyster Cult, Barbara Streisand, Charles Mingus, Herbie Hancock, Chicago, Todd Rundgren.
The emotional imprint of ‘People of No Concern’ (feat. Lettie & Madeleine) moves beyond the melodic vocals and thoughtful songcraft. Baron has created what he describes as “ a magical musical conversation between two angels.” He goes on to explain: “Combining small string ensemble, classical piano, and evolving EMS Synthi analogue tones with the power of human voices both young and older.”
Oakland-based artist/producer, Broke For Free, shares a brand new video titled, “Jibberish” feat. Awon. It’s the latest visual to be released off his upcoming visual album, BFF, which is due out in May. The single/video, as well with the rest of the vids on the album, was written, directed and produced by Tom himself.
The new single/video features vocals from VA wordsmith, Awon. He describes the song as “a cross-pollination of genres with a feel-good vibe that oozes positivity with an air of cool.”
An ode to shower-thought concepts and DE(everything)Y hustle, BFF is an unfiltered peak into a creative’s mind. After working on GoPro’s music content for years, Tom took his pages on pages of film-centric ideas and brought them to life through this audio visual project, BFF. Broke For Free is the musician, producer, director, filmer and editor behind this project.
Broke For Free (BFF) is the moniker of Oakland based musician and creative, Tom Cascino. Tom started making music in his bedroom in 2012, taking it full-time in 2017. This DE(everything)Y project blends Tom’s unpredictable arrangements, guitar layers, syncopated beats, cinematography, design, and editing to give you an authentic peek into his head. Broke For Free’s work has a sense of cohesion that’s hard to define; it captures a unique vibe, a good feeling.
His influences range from Outkast, Tycho, Modest Mouse, Khruangbin, Mac Demarco to Tyler the Creator, giving his sound an unique pallet of genres and moods.
