Jake Bugg announces 2018 acoustic solo tour

Showcasing his fourth album Hearts that Strain.

The singer-songwriter returns to Australian shores to perform his fourth album Hearts that Strain, appearing at Melbourne’s Croxton Bandroom on Friday April 20 as well as visiting both Sydney and Brisbane while he is in Australia. Pre-sale tickets begin Thursday January 18 via Secret Sounds with the general sale starting Friday January 19. 

Hearts that Strain was recorded in Nashville with Black Keys front man Dan Auerbach. This album shows a different side to Bugg and has a country feel, especially in songs ‘How Soon the Dawn’ and ‘Waiting’. ‘Waiting’, a heartbreaking piano ballad features Noah Cyrus and shows just how far Bugg has come since ‘Lightning Bolt’ and ‘Trouble Town’.

The Nottingham Native has learned from mistakes in the past five years of constant touring and recording and is back better than ever. It’d be a stretch to call him a veteran at 23, but Bugg has a diverse catalogue of tunes that speak volumes for his talent. Bugg’s ability to mix crooning with raucous romping make Bugg an undeniable presence on stage. 

Jake Bugg has an adoring fan base in Australia. All four of his records have been successful reaching the top ten in the UK.

Jake Bugg hits Melbourne’s Croxton Bandroom on Friday April 20, The Factory, Sydney on Thursday April 19 and The Triffid, Brisbane on Saturday April 21. tickets available via Secret Sounds.
