The Reasoning have announced a short tour in late October and early November, which represents their first live shows apart from a couple of one-off appearances at festivals since their “Adventures in the City” co-headline tour with Touchstone back in 2012
Six dates are announced so far, with the possibility of further dates to be announced.
- Talking Heads in Southampton in Friday 24th October
- Venue 2 in London on Saturday 25th October
- The Duchess in York on Thursday 30th October
- The Railway in Bolton on Friday 31st October
- The CFM in Cardiff on Saturday 1st November
- The Robin 2 in Bilston on Sunday 2nd November
Support for all these dates will be Hekz.
The Reasoning will also be playing a support for Lifesigns on Sunday May 11th at The Robin in Bilston, as well as their previously announced slot at Trinity Live at Leamington Spa a week later on 18th May.
The band will be augmented on stage by vocalist Sebastien Flynn-Goze, which answers the question “How will they do the older material justice” since the departure of Tony Turrell who had handled the male vocals originally recorded by Dylan Thompson and Gareth Jones on stage.
Though their email newsletters speak excitedly of activity behind the scenes, The Reasoning have kept a low profile of late compared to some of their peers, with just a single gig in the whole of 2013. This tour, and the forthcoming as-yet-untitled fifth album ought to go some way towards regaining forward momentum.
