Following the overwhelming support from UK fans for their debut headline shows in London this weekend, Nashville’s ENATION have now announced that they will be supporting Echo & the Bunnymen on their ‘The Stars, The Oceans & The Moon’ tour.
The tour will be hosted by some of the most prestigious halls in Great Britain, including the final sold out show at Royal Albert Hall.
Vocal powerhouse Jonathan Jackson, who is also known for his role as Avery Barkley in the hit TV show Nashville, along with his brother Richard Jackson and bandmate Jonathan Thatcher are excited to be heading over to the UK and joining Echo & the Bunnymen who have been an influence to their own alternative, post-punk and early new wave sound.
About the tour, Jonathan Jackson says, “We’re absolutely thrilled to be opening for Echo & the Bunnymen! They’ve been a huge influence and inspiration for ENATION. I have immense love and admiration for Ian McCulloch as a singer and songwriter. It’s a dream come true, really.”
In celebration ENATION have also just released the single ‘A Shock To The System’ in the UK, which features on their acclaimed 2017 album Anthems For The Apocalypse. It’s a record that firmly cemented them as a rising rock force, earning high praise from the likes of Rolling Stone and Billboard, having also landed a Top 10 spot on the Billboard chart with their 2016 Live In Nashville DVD.
With only the final few tickets remaining for Friday night’s show at Omeara, and Saturday having completely sold out, ENATION have now added a third headline show at Norwich Arts Centre on May 31st. Tickets are on sale now.
