Broken Witt Rebels have postponed their upcoming spring tour owing to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The Birmingham-based quartet last week released their new album OK Hotel and, in celebration of the release, the band – consisting of Danny Core (vocals), James Tranter (guitar), Luke Davis (bass) and James Dudley (drums) – were set to embark on their biggest headline tour yet, spanning the UK, Ireland and Germany, but due to the global COVID-19 crisis, Broken Witt Rebels have been forced to postpone the shows until further notice.
In a statement, the band comment; “It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce that the upcoming ‘OK Hotel Tour’ is to be postponed. We are not just responsible for the care and well-being of ourselves and our families, but also for the care and well-being of all of you who support us by coming to our concerts.
“We have been working hard to be ready to bring you the best possible show, and we were desperate to get out there and see everyone, so this is frustrating, but ultimately the best decision for all of us. All dates are currently being rescheduled so please hold on to your tickets; we will get you the new information as soon as possible.
“We are immensely grateful for the reception that OK Hotel has received, and we hope that you continue to enjoy listening to it wherever you are. Stay safe, stay sanitised and stay in touch via socials. Look after each other and we will be among you all again soon. Dan, Luke, JT, JD.”
OK Hotel has been greeted with widespread acclaim. Kerrang! said “The spacious new sound on Broken Witt Rebels’ second album identifies them instantly as a band changing lanes”, while Maverick Magazine declared that “‘OK Hotel’ has an awful lot going for it… this is a record full of talent and is very much worth your time and patience”
