Teaming up with young Italian three-piece “Rumor” – themselves hailing from the shores of Lago Maggiore, Dem Fools are set to play 5 shows in Italy, and return where the Irish leg of the tour commences May 4th with 5 gigs over 5 nights in Dublin.
The brainchild of Irish singer songwriter Ray Heffernan, this is the birth of a very special new project “Gigswig”. A simple concept based on an army of singer-songwriters, bands and musicians all fighting the good fight, striving to carve out a living and dreaming of foreign stages. Gigswig is making this a reality, giving both bands the chance to gain crucial experience living as touring musicians. It’s an opportunity to play an international tour, to share and learn with peers and hone their craft playing to international audiences.
A limited edition double EP featuring three tracks by each of the bands will be released on April (Dem) Fools Day which will be available through the bands social media sites and at shows.
Tour dates include:
Italy – 22nd April – Essattoria, Arona; 24th April – Durty Nelly’s, Borgomanero; 25th April – Agorá, Cusano Milanino; 26th April – Il Kantiere, Verbania
Dublin – 5th May – Balcony TV Dublin, 6th May – Whelan’s; 7th May – Zodiac Sessions, Bruxelles; 8th May – The Gypsy Rose; 9th May – Ollies Place, Skerries; 10th May – Michael Collins, Rush
