Following the release of his brand new album ‘Giving Everything’ which came out on 1st December 2013, Beans On Toast will release his single ‘Keep You’ on 10th February. Free of any schmaltz or corniness, it is a beautiful love song delivered in true Beans on Toast style and has already garnered plays on XFM from John Kennedy.
The release of the single coincides with a support tour with friend and musical peer Frank Turner on his huge UK Arena Tour. Frank said: "It just wouldn’t be right to head out on a tour like this without having him around to kick the night off in style."
Full dates are:
FEBRUARY 2014 SUPPORTING FRANK TURNER & THE SLEEPING SOULS
08 Edinburgh Corn Exchange SOLD OUT
09 Manchester Arena
11 Plymouth Pavillions
12 London O2 Arena
13 Portsmouth Guildhall SOLD OUT
‘Giving Everything’ was recorded in the wonderful Toybox studios in Bristol and produced by Mike Freear from Pyro Circus Gypsy Rave outfit Slamboree. It is still a folk record, but it has a twist. Subjects tackled on the album range from Prince Harry joining the army to Fracking; from the Modern day Glastonbury and English music venues to American conspiracy theories and all the way through to swollen throats, love and things, lots and lots of Things. There's no point in bullshitting, these are simple 3 chord folk songs about the life that he leads and the world as he sees it. Carried through by the heart-warming nature and infectious charisma Beans conveys in every song. You can't really dance to it but its music for people who do like to dance, especially to the beat of their own drum.

2013 was another busy year for Beans On Toast who played loads of summer festivals including Glastonbury and Secret Garden Party; made it across the Atlantic to support Frank Turner in North America; played and compered at Mumford & Son's Gentlemen Of The Road festival in Lewes on the 19th & 20th of July, playing alongside Vampire Weekend, The Vaccines, British Sea Power and Mumford & Son's themselves – and headlined his biggest UK tour to date.
