HARD ON the heels of their debut UK gig at the Borderline in London on March 4th, Houston – Classic Rock magazine’s top AOR band of 2011 – continue their mission to create the music of their dreams by playing six dates across the UK at the end of March and into April.
Joining the fray are melodic Welsh rockers Serpentine, who also played with Houston at the aforementioned Borderline show, fellow Swedes Miss Behaviour, plus a soon-to-be-announced co-headliner.
The tour dates are as follows:
29th – Grimsby, Yardbirds
30th – Nottingham, Rock City
1st – Glasgow, ABC
2nd – Wigan, Club WN1 (formerly Maxime’s)
3rd – Bristol, Academy
4th – London, Islington Academy
Houston are also confirmed for this year’s Firefest event, to be held at Rock City in Nottingham in October, with tickets already sold out.
THE MUSIC of Houston – essentially the Swedish duo of Freddie Allen & Hampus Hank Erix – brings back memories of Survivor, Boston, Foreigner and Journey, only this is no journey back in time. AOR music is on the move and has seldom been more celebrated by critics and fans alike.
Houston‘s self-titled debut album, now on release via Spinefarm Records, is a must for every melodic rock connoisseur, featuring such celebrated names from the AOR word as guitarist Tommy Denander and producer Ricky B. Delin.
The first UK single/video from Houston, ‘Truth Slips’ will be available on April 25th as a digital download, complete with bonus acoustic material.
