Towers of London’s original line-up currently on tour and to release new album in 2019
Towers of London band members The Rev and Tommy Brunette were recently interviewed by Underkill TV. The group’s original line-up, consisting of lead vocalist Donny Tourette, rhythm guitarist Dirk Tourette, bassist Tommy Brunette, lead guitarist The Rev and drummer Snell, is currently on tour with The Wildhearts.
When asked whether it was good to be back, The Rev indicated (as transcribed by Sleaze Roxx): “It is, yeah. It’s the third show for the original line-up in 12 years. It is our first tour in 12 years. It’s er… We’ve come a long way. [Sarcastically] A lot of emotional support, counselling and guidance to get us to this point. We’re better than ever. Bigger, stronger than ever.”
In terms of new material, The Rev advised: “Yeah. There already is. We’re already playing. Half the set is new material. We only do four songs from the debut. It’s all about new material. That was in the forefront of our mind for the reunion. The guys had already started working on some material before myself and Snell rejoined and then collectively, we just kicked straight on with it. Definitely. That’s 100% the plan. New album coming this year.”
Wikipedia states the following in part about the band (with slight edits): “Towers of London are an English punk rock band, who formed in 2004. Their music mixes elements of rock and glam metal music with 1977 style British punk. The band have divided the opinions of the British music press since their emergence in early 2004, gaining positive reviews from some music news media and extremely negative from others.”
