It's that time of year again, Communion Music have just announced details of the next New Faces tour, which sees a line-up of four up and coming artists backed by Communion (who work with the likes of Ben Howard, Half Moon Run, George Ezra, and Bear's Den) playing small venues across the UK. This time around, November sees Seafret, Dan Owen, Jack Watts and Flyte take in the likes of Oxford's The Bullingdon and Brighton's Green Door Store, as well as a London show at the beautiful St Stephen's Church (who doesn't love a gig in a church?!)
Since living in Oxford I've attended the last two of these tours, and have seen the likes of Amber Run, Kimberly Anne, Frances and Tenterhook, all of whom are going on to greater things following the slot on the tours. Last time I attended the show without having listened to any of the acts previously and was really pleasantly surprised by the calibre of their performances; having heard good things of all four of the acts on this new tour I'm sure this will happen again!
Tickets are released through Communion's website here on Friday 4th September at 9am. At £8 (£10 for London) a ticket thats £2 per band, and you might just discover your new favourite artist. Certainly worth a punt!
