Solo gigs around AC/DC jaunt
Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown, led into action by Texas-born vocalist / guitarist Tyler Bryant, have confirmed a headline appearance at the Craufurd Arms in Milton Keynes; this is a special ‘warm-up outing’ in advance of the band’s dozen European stadium shows as sole support to rock legends AC/DC in May / June 2016.
In addition to these dates, some already sold out, TB&TS – purveyors of electrifying rock ‘n’ roll, with blues and alternative leanings – have slotted in a selection of headline appearances of their own, with the Milton Keynes outing the latest to be confirmed…
Monday, May 2nd – Craufurd Arms, Milton Keynes
The AC/DC tour will see 25-year-old Tyler, now based in Nashville, plus band-mates Caleb Crosby (drums),Graham Whitford (guitar) and Noah Denney (drums) visiting a number of European markets for the first time, unleashing their high-proof blend of melody, muscle and psychedelic mystique to well in excess of 600,000 riff-hungry fans across 12 different countries…
TB&TS’s latest release, and first for Spinefarm/Varvatos, is a six-track EP called ‘The Wayside’; produced, recorded & mixed by Vance Powell (Jack White, Seasick Steve), these half-dozen tracks see the musicians showing the full scope and sway of their collective vision – from giant groove rockers such as ‘Stitch It Up’, ‘Mojo Workin’’ and ‘Loaded Dice & Buried Money’ through to the hypnotic swagger of new single ‘Devil’s Keep’ and the atmospheric plea that is ‘The Wayside’, with Tyler’s background in the blues ensuring that raw emotion is never far from the surface.
