Little Barrie will be opening for Charles Bradley & His Extraordinaires at Headliners  on Feb. 21st..

Already being hailed throughout Europe, Japan, and much of the rest of the world for their incendiary rock ‘n’ roll, English trioLITTLE BARRIE are poised to make a huge splash in the United States with the release of their latest album KING OF THE WAVES onFebruary 28, 2012 via Tummy Touch Records.

Since their last release in 2007, the band has dedicated themselves to honing their musical reputations, doing everything from appearing live with Primal Scream to collaborations with the likes of Morrissey andMark Ronson. It’s been nearly five years since Little Barrie has released new material, but King of the Waves definitively proves that it’s been absolutely worth the wait. Guitarist/frontman Barrie Cadogan and bassist/vocalist Lewis Wharton are joined on the album by the new addition of drummer/vocalist Virgil Howe, son of renowned Yes guitarist Steve Howe. The resulting sound produced by the band is as intensely electrifying as one might expect from such a dynamic and in-demand group of individuals. It calls to mind an old school Detroit rock ‘n’ roll showdown between Link Wray and The Creation, with the MC5 and Motown’s best in attendance to cheer both sides, and the omnipresent threat of a killer wave lurking just overhead.

Longtime friend and collaborator Edwyn Collins co-produced the album with Little Barrie, just as he did their first, 2005’s We Are Little Barrie, and even sings backing vocals on the track “Money In Paper”. Engineer Sebastian Lewsley also returns onKing of the Waves, recorded at Collins’ West Heath Studios in north London. Although the band members pursued their own projects following their 2007 release Stand Your Ground, eventually they found that all roads led them happily back to Collins to create their triumphant third release.

Little Barrie is already a massive success in Japan and elsewhere abroad, with a prestigious eight-page spread in Japanese Rolling Stone, and #1 and #2 positions on Japan’s iTunes and Amazon charts respectively. They are currently playing select dates across Europe while preparing to take the United States by storm with the release of King of the Waves on February 28th and a spring tour with dates soon to be announced.

This is a Bassnectar 2011 tour wrap up video that just dropped to announce the 2012 tour for his upcoming album.  I’m showing you this because he sold more hard tickets last year than any EDM artist (including Tiesto, all the others).  I found that to be so wild.  He plays shows of 10-20k people on his own (not festivals). Around the 2 min mark it shows how massive these shows are.    He’s the OG long hair thrashing behind tables with an epic fanbase but with little fanfare in 10 years (his own choosing).  More on him coming soon.   Just making you aware  -KLF
