JAMES VAN COOPER ANNOUNCES
MORE DATES FOR ALBUM TOUR
“COMING HOME” TOUR – SEPTEMBER & OCTOBER
SUPPORTED BY AXLE WHITEHEAD
James Van Cooper has announced more tour dates in support of his upcoming independent album release, Coming Home, due for release on 7 September, adding Tamworth, Canberra, and Newcastle to his album launch run.
Headlining the tour, James and his 4-piece band will showcase his new record, Coming Home, a mix of new country rock and edgy alt country cool with plenty of hooks and twangy guitars. Special guest support, Axle Whitehead returns to Australia after starring in US TV productions Shameless and Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD and will be road testing a new collection of songs accompanied by ARIA award-winning, Carl Dimataga.
** FREE SHOW (TAMWORTH)
James and Axle met in LA while James was there recording his debut album. Axle, a friend of US music producer Scott Campbell, sat in on a few of the sessions and it was during that time that the boys discovered their musical tastes collided. Given their creative like mindedness, they agreed to team up and put together an Australian tour and the timing couldn’t be more perfect for the pair. Audiences can expect the two artists to ricochet off of one another live, both brilliant performers in their own rights, with the shows providing a mouth-watering opportunity to see two of the country’s most formidable guitarists in full flight.
The first single lifted from Van Cooper’s upcoming album, Coming Home, Passing Through, was released in early July, receiving airplay across country radio with the video also airing on the Country Music Channel. The second single from the album, Goodbye My Friends, is set for release and will be delivered to radio on Thursday, 23 August (through Rock This Country).
Coming Home is now available for pre-order via iTunes & Google Play and out on Friday, 7 September, with CDs available at live shows.
