Laurence Jones Band Ready to Tear up Europe

Laurence Jones Band has the award-winning guitarist giving his band members full billing on his latest album that’s due out on Friday 27th September via on Top Stop Music (Courtesy of Sony).

Furthermore Bennett Holland (keyboards), Greg Smith (bass) and Phil Wilson (drums) are also listed as co-writers alongside singer/guitarist Laurence Jones on the featured tracks, with the exception of a cover of The Beatles‘Day Tripper’, written naturally enough by Lennon & McCartney.

The track ‘I’m Waiting’ has just been released as a single, ahead of the album, with Jones commenting in it:

 “This song’s a nuclear explosion of feeling and emotion, letting go and saying I’m ready, I’m waiting for whatever’s coming my way. Have you ever heard that phrase that good things come to those who wait? ‘I’m Waiting’ is about being patient but also being ready. I wanted the music to be energetic and on the edge like you’re on the cusp ready for what’s coming to you. It’s that fine line between being impatient and reaching out for what is yours. There’s only one way to end this song and that’s with a long ripping guitar solo.”

Check out the lyric video for ‘I’m Waiting’ right above here at RAMzine – The single will also be available as an instant gratis track when pre-ordering the full length record (available in various formats) by clicking here.

As with his previous album, Laurence Jones Band was recorded in Miami, and has been produced by Gregory Elias.  Alongside the band it also features guest backing vocals by Di Reed.

The full track listing is ‘Everything’s Gonna Be Alright’, ‘Wipe Those Tears Dry’, ‘I’m waiting’, ‘Stay’, ‘Mistreated’, ‘Quite Like You’, ‘Long Long Lonely Ride’, ‘Beautiful Place’, ‘Low Down’, ‘Day Tripper’, ‘Heart Is On Fire’ and ‘The Love’.

“I’m really proud to bring you this new album. Two years of hard work have gone into the planning and recording of it. I will let the music do the talking though and see you on the road at a show!” said Jones. That tour sees the Laurence Jones Band playing Europe with UK dates inked in for November.
