Will Varley – Glastonbury Festival 2017

Another of the festival circuit’s perennial stars, Will Varley is a songwriter first and formost, but, unlike some of the less well-polished performers of contemporary folk (naming no names) he also holds a tune so perfectly balanced you think it might go on forever.

Alicia Crawford remember hearing this one earlier this year at DC9? “Maybe time is a statue, not a river.” Classic Will Varley themes about the nature of time and what not.

I can't wait until February for this!

Will Varley - Xmas Special - Live at The Lighthouse

Dec 19, 8:30pm - Dec 19, 11:00pm

The Lighthouse
50 The Strand, Walmer, Deal
Deal,  CT147DX Map

Rambling folk singer Will Varley, who once walked the length of England’s south coast with a guitar on his back, has had an incredible year. In between extensive tours of America, Europe and the UK, opening for the likes of Frank Turner, Billy Bragg and The Proclaimers and an exhaustive festival season including triumphant appearances at Cambridge Folk Festival and Glastonbury.

This Christmas Special will see Will return to The Lighthouse stage. In a live environment he will just as quickly deliver a melancholic and heart-breaking ballad or a fiery protest song as he will a shaggy dog story or an amusing talking blues.

Plus support to be announced.

Leaping drunk in Hamburg, locked in a bunker in Berlin, tearing up the road from New York to Tokyo via everywhere in between, the non stop world of folk punk heroes Skinny Lister is broadening by the record. If their folk debut celebrated the sticks and their punkier second blinked in the bright lights of London, rocked-up third album, The Devil, The Heart & The Fight, has seen them go global.

“The first album [Forge & Flagon] was quite rural,” says singer, guitarist and one-time chief of the stomp-box Dan Heptinstall, while the second [Down On Deptford Broadway] was very London-centric. With this latest album, because we’ve done so much traveling, it was broadening out a bit, it’s more on-the-road. We cobbled the songs together all across the world.” Since the release of The Devil, The Heart & The Fight, the world has continued to unfurl for Skinny Lister. After solid touring throught the latter end of 2016, it was inevitable that the band would leap back into it come the new year. 2017 opened with a massive tours with Flogging Molly in the US and Dropkick Murphys in Europe. They followed this in the spring with a sold out UK tour including their biggest London date so far at Scala and a slot at Frank Turner's Lost Evenings four-night Roundhouse residency. The rest of the summer schedule is packed with festival dates including Glastonbury, Camp Bestival, Hurricane & Southside, Greenfield, and more before an expansive European tour in the autumn covering Norway, Sweden, Finland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland.

As folk rock’s rowdiest rabble since 2009, Skinny’s world has always been an adventure-filled place to be. They’ve held gigs in Land Rovers. They’ve sung while wing-walking. They’ve toured in a narrow boat. They’ve stomped and jigged on restaurant tables, in hotel elevators and in record label car parks. And, as their two previous albums sent them reeling into the hearts of America, the UK, Germany and Japan – on headline tours and stints with Frank Turner, Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys and the Vans Warped Tour - wherever they play their lusty shanties, punk folk roar-alongs and crazed whirls of love, fighting and booze, you’ll still find them out dancing with the crowd, passing around their flagon of rum or crowd-surfing to the bar, double-bass in hand, to neck shots mid-song. Make no bones – Skinny Lister are the wildest party band you’ll ever get drunk with. And you will get drunk with them.

“We still have the flagon,” says Dan. “We pass it full of rum out to the crowd and everyone partakes.”

Pieced together while on the road, and recorded over five weeks in Newcastle Under Lyme’s Silk Mill Studio in May 2016 with producer Tristan Ivemy (Frank Turner, The Holloways), The Devil, The Heart & The Fight is Skinny Lister’s most far-reaching, exciting and accomplished album yet. It’s a full-on rock record that splashes even more punk vigour and eighties pop elements across their fervent folk canvas, taking in hints of Adam Ant and Kate Bush. It also brings the folk storytelling tradition bang up to date with its tales of on-the-road mayhem, most notably the Pogues-ish 'Hamburg Drunk', the story of the fateful night they ended a tour in Hamburg with plenty of rider booze left and decided the most sensible course of action was to neck the lot.

From the fiery Elvis-gone-folk roar of opener 'Wanted' – Dan saluting London, New York and Cairo in a song “about looking for life in the cities we’d visit” - The Devil, The Heart & The Fight comes out fists first. “We wanted a big sound,” says Lorna, “we wanted it to sound punchy and have more attitude than the last one.”

They wanted it to be brutally honest and close to the knuckle too. “This album has been inspired by 'Trouble On Oxford Street' a bit more,” Lorna reveals, “there’s a few more true stories on it. Nobody’s safe. If you know us, you’re not safe.” “I’ve gone pretty close to home on a lot of the songs,” Dan adds. “One of them’s about our drummer Thom who had his wedding cancelled by his fiancée. Everything I write is true but there’s a lot of songs on there about people that are pretty close to me.”

So the jubilant 'Geordie Lad' is an open letter of reconciliation to their ex-bassist Dan Gray. “He left the band and there was a bit of falling out,” Dan explains. “It’s a shame that we’re not as good friends as we were. So it’s a little nod to that as well as speaking to him indirectly through the medium of album.”

And what of Charlie, eponymous star of a pounding pop classic who “carries the dream for all of us, flying the flag for northerners, council estate to Hollywood… like Steve McQueen he took the jump”? “He’s a friend of mine from Bridlington,” says Dan. “He lived on a council estate I used to live on in East Yorkshire. He’s only twenty-one but his sister was doing bits of acting work, took him along to an audition and he got picked up by an agent who then passed him on to an agent in LA and from there he’s picked up a role in a film that’s coming out this year and a big Netflix series that’s about to hit the screens. So he’s by accident fallen into this life. There’s a bit of jealousy in there but good on him.”

A mature, vibrant and varied record, it mingles classic Skinny folk romances ('Grace', 'Reunion') with epic rock takes on rafter-rattling shanties ('Beat It From The Chest') and hearty Dexys-style tributes to the fans they meet on the road ('Fair Winds & Following Seas'), plus a hitherto unseen darker side. Take the deceptively upbeat 'Injuries', Dan’s ode on the bruising nature of life, or 'Devil In Me', in which Lorna comes on like a particularly melodic Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction: “the devil in me will come for you and you’ll pay the price for not being very nice… you took my life, I’m taking yours, that seems to me a fair trade”. Gulp.

And The Devil, The Heart & The Fight is like Skinny’s previous albums gone backpacking; expanding its horizons, full of adventure, discovering itself and doing things it regrets in the morning. Have heart, ye devils, join the fight.

Roaring drunk in Hamburg. Locked in a bunker in Berlin. Tearing up the road in New York and Tokyo. Dreaming of Cairo. The wide-eyed, rump-shaking world of folk punk heroes Skinny Lister is broadening by the record. If their folk debut celebrated the sticks and their punkier second blinked in the bright lights of London, their rocked-up third, The Devil, The Heart & The Fight, sees them go global.
“The first album [Forge & Flagon] was quite rural,” says singer, guitarist and one-time chief of the stomp-box Dan Heptinstall, whilst the second [Down On Deptford Broadway] was very London-centric. With this latest album, because we’ve done so much traveling, it was broadening out a bit, it’s more on-the-road. We cobbled the songs together all across the world. Every day we’d be going into different dive rehearsal studios all over America, Germany and the UK. Anti-Flag let us use their space in Pittsburgh. In Berlin we used a bunker, an old air raid shelter from the war and they’d converted into a rehearsal rooms.”
“We got locked in!” adds singer and dancer Lorna Thomas. “The owners were like ‘see you at six’ and then the guys wanted a ciggy and went upstairs to have a smoke and started panicking… ‘We can’t get out of here’.”
As folk rock’s rowdiest rabble since 2009, Skinny’s world has always been an adventure-filled place to be. They’ve held gigs in Land Rovers. They’ve sung while wing-walking. They’ve toured in a narrow boat. They’ve stomped and jigged on restaurant tables, in hotel elevators and in record label car parks.

“I stamped on a homeless guy’s cup of money and dragged it along the street,” Dan confesses.
“It was horrible, really dark,” Lorna laughs. “He was clinging to this bottle of whiskey going ‘it’s mine! It’s mine!’ and knocking everybody out of the way. Prostitutes were attacking him on the Reeperbahn. Then we found this amazing bar where they actually let us in, and Dan pulled his toothbrush out of his jacket – he has a habit of cleaning his teeth before he goes onstage, weirdly – and started frothing up his beer, that was going everywhere, he was cleaning his teeth with beer and it wasn’t until he started to do somersaults that the barmaid came up and said ‘we don’t want your kind here, get out now!’ Ever since then we keep going back and she remembers him and she welcomes us with open arms. ‘Hamburg drunk’ has turned into a catchphrase within Skinny Lister. Even my mum would be like ‘you didn’t get Hamburg drunk last night did you Lorna?’”
From the fiery Elvis-gone-folk roar of opener Wanted – Dan saluting London, New York and Cairo in a song “about looking for life in the cities we’d visit” - The Devil, The Heart & The Fight comes out fists first. “We wanted a big sound,” says Lorna, “we wanted it to sound punchy and have more attitude than the last one.”

Gulp.
“It is a bit murder-y,” Lorna says, “every girlfriend who’s got an ounce of jealousy or insecurity or feeling that she likes the guy more than the guy likes her has got that ‘don’t fucking fuck this up or I’ll cut your balls off’.” “It was something to do with The Catcher In The Rye and Mark Chapman, who shot Lennon,” adds Dan. “Those stalker type characters. I was trying to capture that dark stalking mentality. It’s nice to twist it – a love song but a bit darker, more threatening. It’s almost like Bonny Away’s darker cousin.”
And The Devil, The Heart & The Fight is like Skinny’s previous albums gone backpacking; expanding its horizons, full of adventure, discovering itself and doing things it regrets in the morning. Have heart, ye devils, join the fight.

Es scheint schon wieder eine Ewigkeit vergangen zu sein, seit Will Varley Anfang der 2000er nur mit seiner Gitarre bewaffnet 500 Meilen entlang der englischen Küste zu Fuß wanderte und dabei Abend um Abend ein Konzerte vor einem kleinen Publikum spielte. Seither ist viel passiert: Von Support Slots für Frank Turner und The Proclaimers, einer gemeinsamen riesigen US Tour zusammen mit seinen Label-Kollegen Skinny Lister und Beans On Toast bis hin zu mehreren Auftritten auf dem legendären Flogging Molly Kreuzfahrtschiff inmitten der Karibik. Wirklich ruhig war es um Will Varley seit der Veröffentlichung seines dritten Studioalbums „Postcards From Ursa Minor“ (via Xtra Mile Recordings) nicht wirklich. Und das ist gut so! Seine Songs bringen den Zuhörer gleichermaßen zum Lachen, Weinen und Nachdenken.

Gerade sein 2016 erschienenes Album „Kingsdown Sundown“ beschäftigt sich mit deutlich düsteren Themen als je zuvor. Fast so, als würde es versuchen, eine Entschuldigung für das aktuelle Scheitern der Menschheit zu finden. Trotz all der Melancholie geht es hier allerdings weit über einfache Gefühlsduselei hinaus und Will gelingt es mit seinen Texten und seiner Musik abermals direkt ins Herz zu treffen.

Aktuell arbeitet Will Varley an seinem fünften Studioalbum.

Will Varley Music

* Presale starts on November 1st; 1 pm *

Having spent most of 2017 on the road, including dates with Frank Turner in the US and a European spring tour with Valerie June, Will Varley will return to live venues in 2018, including Germany in April, after spending the autumn in the studio working on his fifth album.

After Will's sell-out tour of Germany in winter 2016 and shows in Cologne and Hamburg in June this year, as well as the Xtra Mile Reeperbahn Festival showcase in September, Will is eager to return to the warm welcome of Germany’s thriving music venues. He may have some surprises too, among a heap of new songs. He will have extensively limbered up during February and March in North America with hyperactive labelmates Skinny Lister too, so you’re in for some fine-tuned and memorable shows.

Will practically lives on the road, and 2017 has been perhaps even more busy than 2016, when he toured with the Proclaimers and supported Billy Bragg as well as performing on the Flogging Molly Salty Dog cruise. After starting this year on the road with Frank Turner in the US, Will embarked on a headline tour of his own in Germany before the European tour with Valerie June, including his first ever France dates. He also performed the Xtra Mile night of Frank Turner's Lost Evenings festival at Camden's legendary Roundhouse in May. He spent the rest of spring and the beginning of summer in the US supporting Lincoln Durham before hitting the festival circuit, wowing crowds at 2000trees, and Greenfield.

With so many shows under his belt, the wait until 2018 will be worth it. Often politically charged and always emotionally loaded, Varley’s live shows have been drawing crowds across the world, and his headline tours have seen him selling out venues from Berlin to New York and everywhere in between. It’s been a meteoric rise for the 29-year-old who began self-releasing albums and travelling England on foot only six years ago. In 2015 he signed a deal with independent music champions Xtra Mile Recordings, and momentum has been growing around the young troubadour ever since with the release of two studio albums ‘Postcards From Ursa Minor (October 2015) and ‘Kingsdown Sundown’ (November 2016) and toured extensively across the UK, Europe and North America opening for supporter and label mate Frank Turner, Scottish heroes The Proclaimers and Billy Bragg.

Seither ist viel passiert: Von Support Slots für Frank Turner und The Proclaimers, einer gemeinsamen riesigen US Tour zusammen mit seinen Label-Kollegen Skinny Lister und Beans On Toast bis hin zu mehreren Auftritten auf dem legendären Flogging Molly Kreuzfahrtschiff inmitten der Karibik. Wirklich ruhig war es um Will Varley seit der Veröffentlichung seines dritten Studioalbums „Postcards From Ursa Minor“ (via Xtra Mile Recordings) nicht wirklich. Und das ist gut so! Seine Songs bringen den Zuhörer gleichermaßen zum Lachen, Weinen und Nachdenken.

Gerade sein 2016 erschienenes Album „Kingsdown Sundown“ beschäftigt sich mit deutlich düsteren Themen als je zuvor. Fast so, als würde es versuchen, eine Entschuldigung für das aktuelle Scheitern der Menschheit zu finden. Trotz all der Melancholie geht es hier allerdings weit über einfache Gefühlsduselei hinaus und Will gelingt es mit seinen Texten und seiner Musik abermals direkt ins Herz zu treffen.

Aktuell arbeitet Will Varley an seinem fünften Studioalbum (VÖ: 09.02.2018)

Folk / Antifolk / Singer-Songwriter Konzert im KESSELHAUS

Will Varley kündigt die Veröffentlichung seines fünften Albums "Spirit Of Minnie" für den 9. Februar auf Xtra Mile Recordings (Vertrieb: Indigo) an (hier zum Vorbestellen).

Der Nachfolger von "Kingsdown Sundown" aus dem Jahre 2016 ist der erste Longplayer von Varley mit Begleitband. Produziert hat Cameron McVey (Massive Attack, Portishead, Neneh Cherry), der Will's Sound entsprechend erweitert hat, aber auch viel Wert auf die gewohnte Intimität der Vorgänger legte.

Die Vorabsingle "All Those Stars" gibt einen gelungenen Einblick ins neue Material und zeigt McVey's dezenten Einfluss mit dem fein nuancierten Zusammenspiel seiner neuen Band. Mit Billy Bragg, Valerie June und Frank Turner hat Varley bereits zahlreiche prominente Fans und mit der bevorstehenden Veröffentlichtlung des neuen Albums "Spirit For Minnie" und bestätigten Tourneen in Europa und Nordamerika könnte 2018 das Jahr von Will Varley werden.
