Regarding their forthcoming tour Ferris & Sylvester say, "It feels so surreal to be announcing our first headline tour of the UK & Ireland. We’ve done over a hundred shows this year across the UK and Europe, shared the stage with our heroes and met so many brilliant people. And now we get to do our own tour! We cannot wait for the new year, we have so much we want to share with you."
Ferris & Sylvester have been prolific names on the UK’s live scene and have played to thousands of people this year, with major shows alongside the likes of Jade Bird, George Ezra, Eric Clapton, Robert Plant and many more.
They have played a number of high profile festivals this summer including BST Hyde Park, the main stage at Wilderness Festival and a sold-out show at Reeperbahn Festival among many others. Ferris & Sylvester have now been announced for their first festival of 2019 and will play at Eurosonic in January.
The duo recently released their new single ‘Burning River’, the first taste of an exciting new project inspired by their recent writing trips to Iceland.
Produced by Michael Rendall (Pink Floyd, Paul McCartney, Echo & The Bunnymen), ‘Burning River’ pulls together Icelandic chants, captivating percussion, blues guitars and the pair’s unmistakable harmonies. The result finds Ferris & Sylvester expanding their sound into something that is both their most raw and heartfelt yet.
The track has clocked up well over 300,000 streams on Spotify and its release has led them to receive continued support from the likes of BBC Introducing, The Independent, The Guardian and other tastemakers.
In just a year Ferris & Sylvester have been quick to capture the hearts of fans and critics across the country. Now starting 2019 with their first ever headline tour the band are gearing up for their biggest yet. Full Ferris & Sylvester headline tour dates can be found below:
