Vintage Trouble – New Single “Knock Me Out” Out On 9th June / UK & European Tour This Summer

RELEASE DATE: 9th June 2017

Vintage Trouble

Vintage Trouble are set to unleash their legendary and incendiary live show with a full UK/European tour this summer. To support their forthcoming shows, Vintage Trouble will be releasing the new single “Knock Me Out” on the 9th June 2017.

“Knock Me Out” captures the essence of the band. The track’s melody and the driving rhythm are held together by Ty’s warm vocals. The song moves effortlessly from the initial bluesy feel to the stronger southern accents of the chorus, leaving the audience immersed in the distinctive Vintage Trouble soundscape. The track is featured on the forthcoming John Varvatos campaign and will also feature on forthcoming new Vintage Trouble album – due later in 2017. The John Varvatos link is telling for a band who are very much pushing style alongside their music.

With a run of headlining performances and festival appearances, the band will again set fire to stages throughout the continent. The tour will see Vintage Trouble bring their sparkling performance and party energy to Europe over 30 dates and 10 countries. The band are accomplished live performers – what other band could support acts as diverse as The Who, AC/DC, The Rolling Stones and Paloma Faith. Vintage Trouble keep bringing “trouble makers” back time and time again never failing to deliver an unforgettable show. This summer will be no exception!

Vintage Trouble – comprising Ty Taylor (vocals), Nalle Colt (guitar), Richard Danielson (drums) and Rick Barrio Dill (bass) – play live-wired, straight-shootin, dirty-mouth’d, pelvis-pushing juke music. Or, as Yahoo! Music put it, “imagine James Brown singing lead for Led Zeppelin and you’ll get an idea of Vintage Trouble’s muscular, in the pocket sound.” The New York Times noted, “Like Otis Redding, Vintage Trouble makes music that is a little bit of everything…you can slow dance, groove, rock and let it all go.”

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
