After playing a pair of socially distanced shows around their inception last year, Salem, the new project from Creeper’s Will Gould, have now announced the details of their debut UK headline tour.
And if that wasn’t enough, they are bringing James And The Cold Gun along for the ride.
Will had this to say about the announcement:
“We are so excited to announce that our passion project SALEM will be touring for the first time. Born in lockdown it feels surreal to be finally taking the band out into the real world for the first time, but never more appropriate. After a year of watching our music scene take hit after hit from COVID-19, reinforced by a real lack of support from our government, we have made a conscious effort to be playing a long intimate tour in independent venues. We owe so much to venues like these and are desperate to do our part.
“I haven’t performed in venues these sizes in a very long time and I’m so excited for sweaty stage dives and punk rock singalongs. This tour is going to be absolute carnage in the best possible way.”
