Waiting For Your Man with Robert Jon & The Wreck

Robert Jon & The Wreck has announced the release of brand-new music with their new single ‘Waiting For Your Man’ that dovetails with a 12-date UK tour this May.

The tour follows swiftly on from Robert Jon & The Wreck’s triumphant September 2021 UK tour where the band sold out five concerts in London, Manchester, Nottingham, Edinburgh and Sittingbourne, and will feature Welsh vocalist and singer songwriter Laura Evans as their special guest.

“We wanted a change of pace and something we can get done quickly,” said the band’s lead singer and guitarist Robert Jon Burrison about ‘Waiting For Your Man’.   

“Alex (Pasco, who’s worked with the likes of Foo Fighters and Paul McCartney) was a blast to work. It was rough to get everything done so quickly. ‘Waiting For Your Man’ was recorded in one day. There is something about knowing what needs to get done that pushes us to play better and not overthink things. Andrew had ideas flying in for arrangements at the last minute. Henry had ideas for the solos. Everyone nailed it in the studio.”

Robert Jon & The Wreck come from a highly influenced rock and roll background. With ‘Waiting For Your Man’, they wanted to inject a bit more of a rock and roll feel and energy. The new single is very riff based and is a result of the band jamming together in one room. The new song came about naturally, felt familiar, and gave them a feeling of nostalgia.” 

“’Waiting for Your Man’ is the simple song about going through the peaks and valleys of any relationship,” said the singer. “Both sides have their issues with one and other, but they want to give each other a chance. Sometimes it is easy to throw away what could have been something great.”

Fans of the band over their last couple of albums need not fear that they’ve lost their signature sound, but there’s no doubt the single strikes a more direct narrative approach and will suit all makes of car as you speed down the highway playing at full blast.

What’s also interesting, is that the new single is released on blues rock guitarist’s Joe Bonamassa’s steady growing record label KTBA Records.
