Joe Banfi announces UK dates - win tickets
Story by Jack Foley
JOE Banfi has announced details of UK tour dates for September and October.
Starting with the launch show for his debut EP Iron at The Social in London on September 25, he will then play a number of Communion shows around England and Scotland through to the end of October.
The latest addition to the Communion roster, Joe Banfi will release his debut EP Iron on September 24.
Already championed at XFM and 6Music with thanks to a solitary track, Olive Green, on Communion’s recent New Faces compilation, Northwich’s Joe Banfi has that stark individualism that Communion discovered with the debut releases by the Mercury Prize nominated Michael Kiwanuka and Ben Howard.
And what immediately proved so distinctive for Kevin Jones and Ben Lovett of Communion after receiving an unsolicited email from Joe linking them to his demos, is what also makes this debut Iron EP such a compelling listen.
Where Banfi typically shares an affinity with a number of timeless solo artists of old, it’s his unlikely rock, grunge, and metal influences that provide the unsettling aura of the record.
The official video for the lead track Guts and Bones is now available below…
