Described as “one of the most important political songwriters in the U.K” TV Smith has announced more solo shows in the UK as well as the return of TV SMITH & THE BORED TEENAGERS

All the way from Barcelona, TV Smith‘s Catalonian band The Bored Teenagers return to Britain for a short tour in Spring 2019. Although known mainly as a solo artist these days, TV still plays a small amount of gigs with a full electric band backing him. He first met them when bassist BB Quattro invited him over to Spain in 2003 for a few concerts with his punk-pop band, Suzy & Los Quattro, fronted by their dynamic female vocalist Suzy Chain. Re-named as “The Bored Teenagers,” the band backed up TV on a few songs during the encores, and on a day off during the tour they went into the studio and recorded a single together “What If?/New Church,” which was released in Spain on the “No Future” label. Self-confessed Adverts fans, the band went on to learn the entire “Crossing The Red Sea” album and played it in full with TV on his fiftieth birthday at London‘s esteemed 100 Club in 2007. This performance was later released on CD by Boss Tuneage records. TV and the band went on to tour the “Red Sea” set in Germany and the UK, and in 2016 wowed the main stage at the Rebellion Festival with a set comprising songs from “Crossing The Red Sea” and the second Adverts album “Cast Of Thousands.” The following day they played a set of TV‘s post-Adverts songs on the huge Opera stage to an ecstatic full house. As well as playing a select club tour in the UK in May 2019, TV Smith & The Bored Teenagers are already booked to return to Rebellion 2019 for a further two sets of Adverts and TV Smith classics – including of course some from his brand new album “Land Of The Overdose.”
