The Damn Truth Add Extra Date to UK Summer Tour

Montreal four-piece rock’n’roll band The Damn Truth has added a ninth date to their recently announced 2023 UK tour, taking place this July and August, and including a special performance at the Steelhouse Festival on Saturday 29th July. The band will now also play Blackpool, Waterloo on Sunday 23rd July.

Following the summer tour, they will return in October, as special guests on Glenn Hughes’ solo tour.

The band consisting ofLee-La Baum (vocals, guitar), Tom Shemer(guitar), PY Letellier(bass) and Dave Traina (drums) released their critically acclaimed album Now Or Nowhere in 2021. Produced by legendary Grammy Award winning Bob Rock (who will also be at the helm of their next release).

The Damn Truth has experienced considerable success at radio airplay in the UK including ten weeks of high rotation for their previous single ‘This Is Who We Are Now’ on Planet Rock and a spot play on BBC Radio 2’s Rock Show with Johnnie Walker. On several occasions, the band won Tracks of the Week on Classic Rock’s Louder Sound.

“Don’t get me wrong, it’s an honour to open for rock and roll royalty but the magic of The Damn Truth is best experienced uncut, in our full set,” said Lee-La Baum. “Our connection with our audiences is the most important thing so don’t miss us in these intimate headline settings!”

Now Or Nowhere chronicles the band as they navigate life, love, and everything else in a world gone seemingly upside down and sideways during the past year they were unable to finish the album with Bob because of COVID-19 restrictions, the band recorded the remaining three songs with help from Juno Award-winning producer Jean Massicottewho mixed ‘Everything Fades’; and the rest of the mixing was done byVance Powell (Jack White, Chris Stapleton),Nick DiDia (Bruce Springsteen, Rage Against The Machine), and Mike Plotnikoff (Van Halen, Cranberries).
