New Release & Tour: Beans On Toast – Drunk Folk Stories

Today, Beans On Toast announces his debut book, a seated UK tour & a double vinyl release

This May, the cult folk-singer will embark on a tour of UK venues. This tour, however, will be somewhat different. The aptly titled ‘Sitting On A Chair Tour’ will see the songwriter playing seated theatres and venues rather than pubs and clubs. He’s promising a unique evening of stories about his travels and songs from his huge nine album back-catalogue. Love songs, protest songs and drinking songs are intertwined with the stories behind the songs and the random adventures they’ve led him on

The tour will coincide with the release of Drunk Folk Stories – his first book. A collection of ten, short, true-life stories about songwriting, travelling and drinking. Featuring the likes of Billy Bragg, Banksy and The Cookie Monster. From Glastonbury to Wembley via The Bahamas, these first-hand accounts of drunken escapades, car-crashes, recreational drugs and burning pubs are full of humour, grace and honesty – just like his music. The book is released worldwide on 1st May, via Play on Words Publishing

The 1st May also sees the re-release of the 2009 album Standing On A Chair. The whopping 50-track debut will be released on vinyl for the first time – a double vinyl nonetheless. Produced many moons ago by Mumford and Sons’ Ben Lovett, this much-loved album features crowd favourites such as MDMAmazing, The Price Of Rice and Don’t Believe The Bullsh*t and cameos from the likes of Emmy The Great, Justin Young and Frank Turner

9 years might seem a strange anniversary to celebrate but when he started putting these plans together, Beans thought it had been 10 years. But he thought f**k it and went ahead with it anyway. Such is his way!
