The former Black Grape man's new band hit the road in April...

Former BLACK GRAPE mainstay KERMIT is set to tour and release a debut single with new band BIG DOG.

He will release 'Raise The Alarm' through Jive on April 2, preceding a five-date UK tour that kicks off in Glasgow on April 9 and runs through to April 13 in Stockton.

Explaining why it has taken so long to get his new project together, Kermit said: "I've been sitting at home for three or four years, sorting my head out, getting rid of all them poisons in my system."

Kermit last appeared on vinyl as a guest on Bentley Rhythm Ace's second album, 'For Your Ears Only', released last year.

The Big Dog tour dates are as follows:
Glasgow King Tuts (April 9)
York Fibbers (10)
Wolverhampton Varsity (11)
Peterborough Park (12)
Stockton Arc (13)
