Bill Ryder-Jones has announced plans for a December UK tour.
The former guitarist with The Coral is currently working on a new solo album, to follow 2013’s ‘A Bad Wind Blows In My Heart’. The new LP will be released next year. The nine-date tour will be a co-headline trip with Saint Saviour, whose new album Ryder-Jones has produced.
In addition to the December dates, Ryder-Jones will play as part of the Manchester Literature Festival. He will appear at Manchester Cathedral on October 9, playing his 2011 debut solo album ‘If…’ with the Manchester Camerata.
Bill Ryder-Jones will play:
Manchester Cathedral (October 9)
Cambridge Portland Arms (December 2)
Stockton On Tees Georgian Theatre (4)
Glasgow Nice and Sleazy’s (5)
Manchester Deaf Institute (6)
Birmingham Horse & Hounds (8)
Bristol Lantern (9)
Brighton Studio Bar (10)
London Tabernacle (12)

Meanwhile, Ryder-Jones has also teamed up with The Coral‘s keyboard player and songwriter Nick Power on a new album. The pair have both contributed to The Lost Brothers‘ forthcoming album ‘New Songs Of Dawn And Dust’, which will be released on September 22.
Ryder-Jones produced the album for the duo at Liverpool’s Parr Street Studios after returning from touring with Arctic Monkeys earlier in the year. Power, meanwhile, wrote a song on the album called ‘Hotel Loneliness’, and has also written a mystery poem that will appear in the liner notes. It’s the first time Ryder-Jones and Power have been involved in a project together since the former left The Coral in 2008.
