Tom Stevens, WaterBear’s new BA course leader will be providing additional guitar to complete the Undead Raisins’ line up, with support coming from the very talented Holiday Oscar.
“I’m both thrilled and honoured to be playing these songs live, on this tour, and with such amazing musicians,” says Tom, “The fact that the songs translate so well to an acoustic setting is testament to the unbelievable songwriting and strength of the original material. The festivals we’ve played as Undead Raisins over the past year (including Camden Rocks and 2000 Trees) have been absolutely incredible, and these shows promise to be no different!”
